Hi,

just got a bunch of symphonic files where many staff names contain a line feed, like
"English
Horn"

I'm trying to write a script to correct that, but FS won't recognize the staff name...

Anyone?

thanks,

-frank

try :

search names "^l" replace with " "

(and batch process (sub)folder(s), or apply to all open docs)

That should do the trick!

Generally speaking, FS seach and replace has a bunch of caret inserts:
//- '^l': line feed
//- '^t': tab
//- '^T': title
//- '^d': file description
//- '^c': copyright text
//- '^@': copyright symbol insert
//- '^C': composer
//- '^s' or '^#': sharp
//- '^b': flat
// '^S': double sharp
//- '^B': double flat
//- '^n': natural
//- '^^': real caret
//<65> ASCII character

Which version of Finale/FS are you using?

My main work horse is still 2004b, but I just tried it in 2005 where it works as expected,
hence your question I presume...:) or should it also work in 2004?
BTW: will FS from F2005 work in F2004?

Hi Frank,

I just tried it in Fin2004c (mac) and it works, but for ALL text blocks - a little dangereous... You cannot specify "names" in FS/Fin2004.

FS 2005 won't work in Fin2004.

HI R., guess I didn't mention I'm on Windows... since I got my feet really wet with the first catastrophic 2004 release, I tend to
play safely, but I guess I can convert to 2005 before carrying out this operation on the 52 files...

thanks,

another one: Can FS be used to change the font for a single char. / articulation?

Documents started in FinWin2004 have this annoying detail: when printed to a PDF driver the triple slash character (ascii 190) in Maestro will still look good on screen, but when the resulting PDF is printed on paper the middle slash will print as an outline! In order to overcome this we have found the only solution to be a font swap for this character only. (we cannot swap the fonts on a global basis).

thanks,

;-f
