I agree with you, completely. I rely heavily on Keyboard Maestro and can't imagine using Finale without it. But it would be much better if all the tools and menus were accessible with shortcuts wi...

Is this the way this is usually done? I am more familiar with double stemming, or using small notes to show differences of this kind. If you are innovating, be aware that there might be confusion...

I am having the same issue with Finale 27, that is the tuplet number can only be moved in a jerky imprecise way with the mouse. The arrow keys move the number normally. The same thing is being expe...
