Also, many thanks for the tautological comments!
Just the comments are not tautologic.. ;)
Also again "tautology": in Vibra you have Ped + tie + (l.v.)
Just one is needed. It is to much information for one single performance instruction.

Re: Comparing text fonts (Operatic Score)

Dear all Thank you massively for all your helpful advice! After spending many more months on not only font finding but also actual composing, I am now using a combination of different fonts that I am now happy with: And what are the fonts? Looks nice both the music and engraving. P.s. keep in mind ...

Re: Vocal score yet again.

I think I would notate your LH this way:

Yet, as with piano REDUCTION, you need to simulate the orchestra even by octaving. Perhaps this solution would work in LH:

here I am:
the first line vs the second differs only in dynamics that are

p mp f
vs
pp p mp

one degree different...
any way to automatise it?
Automatise what exactly? Do you want to copy paste and than increase the dynamic nuances?

Thanks anyway So your question is concerning Finale, how t...

Re: Going digital

A very interesting subject, that continues in the spirit of our other topics. I understand your pain. The single copies are just taking too much energy, time and return is small. For how much do you sell these single copies, if I may ask? And what is the shipping? I just want to check with my own sy...

Re: Finale 26.2 released

Thanks for the info. I stay at 25.5 and somehow it sounds scary even to think to upgrade to v26.
I still hope that Finale will clean up their code and move forward, despite all. Having several notation programs is always better for us end users! Wishing good luck MM.

There's something rather wonderful about those curved beams. I wonder why it was never (as far as I know) done in printed music?
I think I have seen them, but I can't remember where. G. Crumb - maybe?
