I am using Finale 2006a and would like to edit some articulations to put them in brackets (parenthesis), e.g. (tr) only with the proper articulation trill symbol. Is it possible to edit the articulation trill symbol to place brackets around it and if so, how?
 
The only way I have devised so far is to create a set of parenthesis as an expression, place this in the score then superimpose the 'tr' articulation between the brackets or simply to use the text (tr).
 
I have searched through the manual and searched the forums but can't find any reference to this.
 
Many thanks.
 
Michael

Instead of using a single character as your articulation, select "symbol", and create a new one. Select Font Maestro 24 plain, and with the text tool (inside shape designer), write the sequence of ASCII characters #040, $217, #41 = "(", "Ù" and ")". Save it, select it and Voillá!

Cheers,

Thomas

Hello Thomas,

Many thanks for your reply.

Would you tell me which menu I should be in to ' select "symbol", and create a new one'.

I have searched through the articulation menus and can't find where this is.

Thanks again.

Michael

Your best bet, to get the whole story, is to check out, in the online PDF manual, the chapter on Articulations. In the Articulation Designer window, choose Shape instead of Character.

Thanks for setting it up Zuill. Very much appreciated.

I have tried following the manual and got into the Articulation Designer. I couldn't find how to enter the ASCII characters.

The examples you gave are just right .. many thanks to yourself and Thomas.
