Howdy Finalescripters,
 
Time to pick your knowledge on this. I created a template file using Finale 2005B and I want to make the part extraction a little easier. The page format for parts does not do this much justice and I need your assistance on doing this as a Finalescript (if possible). Let me include the files. File number 1 is the full conductor score. File number 2 is the Extracted part before any cleanup is done. File number 3 is the same extracted part with cleanup. I changed the font size on the composer from 10 to 12. What I would like to know is this. Is there a set of commands I can program Finalescript to to extract the part, set the font size and placement, set the expression markings correctly, and in general, make part extraction and part cleanup less time consuming.

James,

Instead of changing the items in every extracted part, why not change it in the score before part extraction, then once all the parts are done, change it to how you wish it to appear in the score?

Cheers,

Tim

Yes, it is very possible to use Finalescript to do these sort of repetitive things.

This is the sort of command structure I use (assumes all the parts are currently open, but not the score):

process all open

apply page format

search font [Plantin Bold] 32 and replace [Plantin Bold] 22

scroll view
page view
save
close

Flipping to scroll view then back to page view seems to be necessary to make the "save" command actually "stick", and avoid a "do you really want to save" dialog box coming up.

For anything more complex that Finalescript can't handle (like accessing Staff Attributes) I use a combination of Applescript and iKey (an OS X application)
