Is there a way to do it other than the plug-in? The problem with the plug in is that it hides all ledger lines on a selected measure. I have my rhthmic notation on the 2nd layer and only want to hide leger lines on that measure.

Here's an example of what I'm talking about:

As you can see, the plug-in which removes the ledger lines in Finale also removed the ledger lines from the standard notation which is in a different layer.

How do you remove ledger lines from an individual note in speedy or simple?

Why doesn't the manual cross-ref very clearly indicate this? :-(

If you choose to only show the active layer, then apply the plugin, it should only affect that layer. If you only want to do it for 1 beat in a measure, use the partial measuires function.

P.S.: You can also remove an individual leger line in the edit Frame window. But the plugin is faster.

What is the partial measures function?
 
I'm not sure what the edit Frame window is...

Oh, partial measures "selection". I have that on all the time. I didn't know what was meant by "partial measures function"...

Still not familiar with the edit frame window. However, you should be able to toggle a leger line with a key like you can beams, accidentals, etc.

I was using a generic term for that feature. I meant the Select Partial Measures function (function meaning the ability to do). The edit frame window is accessed by being in the Speedy Entry tool, and ctrl-clicking on a measure that has something already in it.

Wow Zuill...I had never seen that speedy measure attributes dialog. It's powerful but very clumsy. The preoccupation with the "next entry" navagation that Makemusic has baffles me. Very counter-productive. They have the same concept in the chord editor and it's what makes this so clumsy.

Do you mean the fact that the cursor automatically moves to the next entry-position when you enter a note?
If you hadn't noticed, while using Speedy Entry you can alter the note you just entered even though the cursor is not actually on that note. For example, to raise or lower the note (sharp/flat) simply utilize the +/- keys.
To tie a note to the next upcoming note, simply press =.

Speedy Entry is, just as its name implies, meant for rapid entry of notes. I don't think it was designed for anyone who might be entering notes vertically one by one (for example notes of chords).

I'm not sure if this is what you are referring to.
However, I might point out, if you had to manually advance the cursor every time you entered a note, it would be considerably more counter-productive.

My only personal bug with Speedy Entry is that when I enter an appoggiatura/grace note, Finale won't let me alter the notes to "grace note format" until the following note has been entered.

True. However, it does allow you, once you understand how it works, to do some powerful things. I use it to flip notes to the other side of the stem in thick chords. Doing it manually in the Special Tools is faster but not as precise. I also use this to add backward ties in 2nd endings. It can also be used to mute just certain notes in a measure. Say you wanted to notate a hand clap or spoken note, and didn't want it to play back. You can easily uncheck the playback for just that note in the edit frame.

how exactly do you do this? this is a functionality I have yet to discover and have at times been in need of it. (to alter the playback of a single note)

You can do it in the Edit Frame dialog box by unchecking Playback for the note. This is probably the quickest and easiest way.

But there are also a couple of other ways you can do it.

You can use the MIDI Tool to set Key Velocity to zero for that note, and you can create an expression to do the same thing. Creating an expression make sense if you will be silencing lots of individual notes.
