I created a diamond expression shape. I put this around a chord to indicate that the guitar strums the chord and stops. I figured out how to create this shape in the expression designer tool in one document, but it is not available on the expression pallet in another document. I can't figure out how to tell finale that I want this new expression available program wide and not just for the document I created it in. I also tried just copy and paste, but when it is selected the option to copy is not available in the edit menu. I also fooled around with the edit filter and use filter. I followed the manuel - all are checked, but still can't copy the shape so I can paste it into another document.

I am attaching a document in which there are three of these shapes in the last two measures. It seems like it should be simple to select one of these, copy and then go into another document and paste it.

Maybe there is someone else who has run into this problem.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,


Tina

Welcome to the forum.

Expressions are this-document-only. To have them in all documents, you would have to put them in your default document, or in a library ro be loaded as needed.

In my experience if you copy an entire measure without a filter, then paste it into a new document, the expressions get added to the new document. Just copying and pasting the expression in the expression tool will not do it. Use the measure selection tool to select the entire measure.

If the expression is measure-attached rather than note-attached, it will only be copied in stack selection, which means you would have to Alt-click to select the entire stack. However, after pasting, you can Clear All Items, and the expression should stay in the new document's expression library.

I was able to copy/paste this to another document, so it can be done.

I could be wrong here, but I think that you have to double-click to get a Stack Selection (rather than Alt-click).

By The Way:
You can get a Stack Selection of only some of the document’s staves (or only a single staff) via a custom Staff Set that contains only the staves (staff) you need to “stack select”.

There's only one staff in this document. I don't think that it matters about selecting a stack.

Jari Williamsson's Forza! plug-in used to copy an expression from one document to another. Very handy.

I was able to use the Select Tool to highlight a measure (#77) containing this shape, right click and copy (or CTRL-C), then open a blank default document and select any measure and right click and paste it (or CTRL-V) in any measure.  This assumes the Edit Filter includes only expressions (stacks not an issue here).  BTW, pasting does not duplicate the expression in the Expression Selection dialog.  They are all instantiations of the same expression, i.e., change one and you change them all, after a screen redraw (CTRL-D).  If, however, you change the shape in the new document, then re-paste the original unchanged copy buffer, you will get a new copy of the original shape in the Expression Selection dialog.  Remember, the first expression's shape was modified in this experiment.

Motet,

I liked Forza! too, but alas it is gone.  I don't think it's supported by JW anymore.
