Re: Finale Help
The asterisk key is the way to display individual courtesy accidentals - in "Speedy Entry". Place the cursor on the note and press the asterisk key on the number pad. However, if you are using "Simple Entry" then you need "highlight" the note by clicking on it (use the same note value). One it is "highlighted" (it will change colors) press Ctrl Shift and - at the same time.
You can also do it globally by using the "Cautionary Accidentals" plug-in. Select the section you want to show the cautionary accidentals. Go to "Plug-ins" then "Note, Beam, and Rest Editing" then "Cautionary Accidentals" from there you can choose how you want the accidentals to be displayed. It will not affect accidentals already displayed in the score (like if the key signature has an F# and you changed it to F-natural). But, it will display cautionary accidentals.
Anyone know of another way?
Hmmm... that one didn't work.
