Hi,

Don't know if I'm clear with the title ;-)

I have composed a clarinet quartet, and at the end I have a Da Capo, but the key is not the same, so I want to make the beginning key at the end of the music, just before the Da Capo.
What I've done : I have created one more measure, with the same key as the beginning, and I move that measure to a new page (end of the document).
When I want to print, I only print the 8 pages, and not the ninth (with the blank measure).

The problem is, as I have 9 pages now, if I insert page numbers (style 1/8, 2/8, etc ...), I'm going to have 1/9, 2/9, ...
I don't want the last page to count in the total of pages.

Is it possible ?

I work with Finale 2014 but my publisher uses Finale 2012.

Thanks
Alex

Instead of putting the last measure on a new page, you could hide its barline and set its width to zero (make sure that the default rest isn't visible by inserting a hidden rest or by using a Staff Style). Then you could include it on the last line of your quartet, you'll see a courtesy key/time signature ostensibly at the very end and you won't need an extra page.

Instead of putting the last measure on a new page, you could put the last measure on a new system, and position this system outside the right edge of the last page so that the new system does not print.
To position a system “off-page” you must de-select “Avoid Margin Collisions” in the Page Layout menu.
When the menu item “Avoid Margin Collisions” is de-selected, you can have negative values in the dialog box Edit System Margins.
