I am not a newbie to GPO, Finale or computers in general. That is probably what got me into the trouble i am in. I have Finale 2008 with all the new updates, which are registered and generally work great.
My issue is that I am writing a string quartet, and the keyswitch solo strings are doing things I don't want, and I am having trouble resetting my score after it gets messed up.
Here is an example:
My Viola has a trill smart shape over a few quarter notes and eighth notes. The tempo is at 60 bps. Right after these simple trills, I have a measure of quarter notes and some dynamic markings like mf and a cresc hairpin. The issue is that the viola still trills these notes. They are in a different measure and the trill shape doesn't extend over any of them. Then the measure after that, in the second beat, the viola stops doing it. I tried deleteing the measure, adding new notes, removing the dynamics. Still nothing. Then I added a new expression that is set to hp off, and the trill went away, but so did any interesting dynamic ideas. When I turn HP back on for that measure, the trill thing happens again.
please advise. I have a BIG EXPENSIVE deadline, and this ain't funny!
