Sorry I didn't answer the friend request long ago.

My interface is quite messed up, so I don't even go to "my page" at hardly.

My Composers forum email does not work at all, at least for SENDING messages.

I can receive, but not send.

Please let me know if you get this.

Quiz time re; finale software

Posted on September 22, 2013 at 1:53pm 1 Comment

Doe's anyone know if there is a way to reset finale to original settings ?

In the course of writing/ scoring a composition the program seems to pick up

'glitches'    i.e.   the 8va won't place or if I erase part of a measure and then rewrite,

the playback plays double notes.   A royal pain in the ........  

There must be a relatively simple solution,

thanks, Roger
