Hello.
I have a problem: I want to write the chord A-Bflat-B at my piece, but I don't know how I can write it! Please help me, I can't find it in the online help.
Greets, Pepi.

Welcome to the forum.

You should post this on one of the general Finale forums, rather than Here in Finale script.

Is there any reason you can't voice the chord as A-B flat-C flat?

Hi. :)
Yes, because I already have c sharp in this accord, it is: A-B flat-B-C sharp-F
The only other possibility would be to write the A as a G sharp sharp and the B flat as A sharp, but there are many of this kind of chord and I don't want it to by so difficult to read it.

Mike, such notation occurs quite often in Bartok. Pepi, it isn't quick, but Special Tools can handle it. I'm attaching an example. Look at page 74 in Gardner Read's "Music Notation" book.

Why not make the C# a Db? Then you could use Cb without having to resort to split stems.
