Sorry, I can't think of the right way to express this, so here is a screenshot. I would like to all of the notes, not just the last in each chord: Below, I have simulated the ties with slurs. Thank you, :-) Nessa
If you have “a lot of them”, do only one measure, and copy that measure to the other measures.
Then, adjust the pitches with the Simple Entry Tool sub-tool Repitch Tool.
Even so, even with all the 'extras' Finale has, it is more work depending on how many measures there is. There is no right or wrong way if what you end up with is what you want. Finale is so versatile it has many ways to accomplish and end. That's what makes it the best.
Thanks, everybody, for another spirited set of responses.
Last first--that term had escaped my brain, also. It is simply a "broken chord." There are scales, arpeggios, and "broken chords." ;-)
Next. I have never even heard of the "Repitch Tool." Really cool. I had simply (no pun intended) thought is was a double-double-whole-note... I will be using this a lot in the future.
Next, the slurs are what I have been using, and it looks acceptable. But for playback, the bottom two notes sound again. Usually--for playback--I add each note and tie to it as it unfolds, but that becomes cumbersome and does not look good.
Lastly, for some reason the V1 is vaguely visible on my screen, so I had never really seen them before. Unfortunately, Peter, pressing the apostrophe ` key does not change V1 to V2.
If I can get that to work I will try your solution.
