I have a few problems I'm trying to work out. I'm using Finale 2011 on Windows 7 64-bit.
I understand you can play back a file with the playback command. I've also found that you can say:
and it will play from the current counter setting... depending on your playback settings. Currently, however, I'm trying to set up a script to play back from the current measure number. I know I could probably change my document styles and templates to default to "play back from current measure number," but I don't use one method of playback much more than the other. This is what I've come up with so far:
button "playback settings"
click radio "leftmost measure"
Seems like it should do the trick, right? It opens playback settings, but then it does not feel like clicking the "leftmost measure" radio button. The rest of the script finishes just fine, but I'm wondering why it would not click the radio button.
<rant>It's really silly that every DAW, audio-editing software, and media playback software use the spacebar to playback, but not Finale. Boggles the mind.</rant>
I'd really like to be able to use any of the playback controls from my keyboard rather than the mouse... in this case I'd like to be able to fast forward or rewind 1 (or many) measures. It seems like a simple task. So I put:
button "fast forward"
The mouse jumps to the button, but the measure counter doesn't budge. Here's the weird part... the following work beautifully:
The measure counter jumps to the beginning or the end of the piece, respectively. Why don't rewind or fast forward work as well?
I can't find the "command reminder" script. Does anyone have a list they could give me? And if you could tell me what the less obvious commands do, that'd be swell.
Thanks if anyone can help at all!
