I wanted to see if anyone else has run into this problem on Finale '08. I've been inputting Copland's Concerto for Clarinet. At the beginning of the piece the contrabass line is played pizzicato, which I indicated. At first it played fine. Then, for some weird reason, Finale started playing regular bowing and ignored the pizz indicated. I could not for the life of me find the problem. I even converted the music to a midi file to see if there was something I may have accidentally put in that I was missing, but it was fine. Then, like an episode out of the Twilight Zone, it went back to playing pizzicato. This one sure has me baffled. I never changed anything in GPO or in human playback. Anyone else run into this? Makes me think that HAL 9000 is running my machine!
