I have an old style tango score that was written in 4/8, as old school dictated.
I want to change the time signature to 4/4, so the eights tranform in quarters, and so on, all figures must duplicate.
It's that possible without rewrite all score again from scratch?
Thank you, Finale gurus.

The full Finale product has a choice on the UTILITIES menu CHANGE > NOTE DURATIONS. Hit the Help button.

You probably want to de-select Rebar music. I honestly can't recall whether you're better off changing the time sig. or the durations first but if *both* do *not* rebar music, you should be okay.

Thnak you! With your quick answer, the job was done in 2 simple steps. First I changed durations (no rebar) and next I changed time signatura (no rebar too). All seems perfect!
