Hi all,

I'm using Finale 2011b.r2, and I've created a simple Finalescript for Show Active Layer Only. When I run it, it works, but the music I'm looking at also "jumps" back a ways. In Page View, the music changes to the previous page, and in Scroll View, it goes all the way back to the beginning. Makes it not really worth it if I have to find where I was again after running the Finalescript.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Ian

Hi there -

The whole script is:

menu item "Show Active Layer Only"

(Is there a better or more 'official' way to post the script?)

Thanks!

Try just these commands:

show active layer only

and/or

show all layers

You can then remove the menu item command completely. Furthermore, assign a keyboard shortcut to each script.

If you are new to Finale script, I would highly recommend perusing the online Help Manual. The article is extensive and offers general directions on how scripts can be used.

Kelby,

Thanks for the reply! I actually had assigned a keyboard shortcut already - and I tried removing the menu item command like you suggested, but when I run the script, the document still moves back to the beginning. Any ideas? I would attach a file, but since Finalescript isn't document-specific, I don't know that that would help - but if so, I'm happy to...

Thanks a lot!

I have been trying out different scenarios attempting to emulate the same behavior, and have not been able to replicate the problem you are having. But I have been able to emulate your issue when I flip layers during note entry when my cursor/caret is on a different location than the page/measure I am viewing.
