I have a plug in that combines all the measures in a selected region into a single measure. It accomplishes this with two loops. The first looks at each measure in the region and sums the number of beats (measureSpec.beats) and the the measure width beatChartElement.posi. The second loop sets the number of beats and the measure width on each measure to the totals calculated before. I then call FX_RebarRegion. This puts all the notes from the region into the first measure. It works beautifully in Finale 2008. When I run it in 2010, all the text expressions disappear. I know that text expressions changed with Finale 2009, so the internal structures and flags must have changed also. Can anyone give me a clue as to what to look at? Or will I need to stick with 2008 until the new PDK comes out and explains what I need to do. Any word on that front Andrew?????? I'm almost ready to send 2010 back!

Finale's own Rebar feature also doesn't move expressions (and much other measure-attached data) with the music.

On Fin2010, try to read the expressions as measure-attached expressions (using a Fin2008 FXT version parameter) and move them back to the previous measure after the FX_RebarRegion call.
