Re: MusAnalysis

It sounds like you are making great progress, Dan. Please post the latest version with updated documentation when it is ready. I'm eager to try it out!

Re: MusAnalysis

I can only get long lines for the superscript Arabic numbers by depressing the hyphen key once with Lyrics>Lyric Options>"Max Space between Hyphens" set to zero. But that rules out individual hyphens with the Lyrics tool. However, they can be placed as articulations or expressions. This is also a F...

Re: MusAnalysis

You are very patient to put up with my inexperience with Finale's lyric tool, Dan. I am going to deal with each of your points individually as I work them out for myself in case it might help someone else. I get hyphens for the Roman numerals with the question mark and longer lines with the quotatio...

Re: MusAnalysis

I get hyphens for the Roman numerals with the question mark and longer lines with the quotation mark. Both can become long solid lines if held, but this pushes the first Roman numeral out of position. I can only get long lines for the superscript Arabic numbers by depressing the hyphen key once with...

Re: MusAnalysis

I restarted my Mac and now the hyphens are correct for the superscript numbers in both the Lyric and Text tools. Unfortunately, this places the hyphens too high for the Roman numerals.

Re: MusAnalysis

Dan, I did install the latest beta but see no change in the position of the hyphens for superscript characters. I'll try some of the other capabilities of your font tomorrow and let you know how it goes.

Re: MusAnalysis

Dan, I want it to look like this:
Example I.jpeg
Example I.jpeg (4.13 KiB) Viewed 54 times
But if I put a space after the number, it looks like this:
Example J.jpeg
Example J.jpeg (4.04 KiB) Viewed 54 times
There are many workarounds, but I am wondering if there is a way to do it within your font.

Re: MusAnalysis

I installed the latest version and looked through the documentation. I plan to try out the features that I haven't looked at later. I am almost there with my trial example. 1. Because of the bug in the lyric tool, I used note-attached articulations for the scale steps that I had designed previously....

Re: MusAnalysis

Dan, thanks for working on this so quickly. The period, exclamation point and equal signs work well. And the hyphens are now centered and that system for entering the 5 :n 3 worked just as you said. You might want to put that in the documentation. So that leaves only 1. the scale degrees, which work...

Re: MusAnalysis

I will do that, Dan. Sorry, I got myself confused at no. 8 above. I meant having to shift for the sharp sign is less convenient and doesn't really fit with the single key commands for natural and flat. And perhaps it would be better to avoid using any of the musical letters a-g for accidentals. Idea...
