It would be nice to have the ability to be able to put accidentals in square brackets with the proper spacing just as it happens with round brackets. For those doing critical editions this would be most welcome! I don't think it is that complicated to implement this feature! Has anyone come up with any "alternative" solutions that use the maestro (or finale maestro) font and maintain the same spacing as the round brackets? Mac, Finale 26; 27

Easily created as an expression. Brackets in the Times New Roman font, size 18, one space between them. They aren’t in the Maestro font, and I didn’t look in the new Finale Maestro.

You will need to shift the accidentals to the left, to have enough room.

Mike thank you for your reply you are a very active user!!! My request was in the direction of having something that is native for Finale. Your solution unfortunately is not very "professional" for my purposes and in normal music situations (so not an example) there are spacing problems.
I hope for an answer from makemusic or some user who has solved differently

Ok…

Is yours?

Square brackets are a Feature Request. Some would consider them a solution looking for a problem.

The problem is that the Gould in this example is facilitated by monodic music and does not consider polyphonic music conditions. It is already enough to have a bicord and the alteration at the head of the note is not clear which note it refers to. It would be the case that this functionality is natively included by Makemusic.

Sorry, this is not the Argue with Elaine Gould forum (I don't know that there is one). MikeR has shown you how to do this in Finale as it exists in 27.2. I have searched the manual and, if we have overlooked anything, someone should feel free to weigh in—please.

There must be one out there, somewhere! I'll avoid it. Sometimes, you just gotta say, she knows more than me, and that's the way I'll go.
