When the percussion map dialog box opens, I see things like "Suspended Cymbal Cresc (" and then I have to look on the Garritan List of General MIDI percussion sounds to remind myself what follows the open parenthesis.

When the human playback box is opened, I cannot see complete words (e.g "data en") nor can I resize any column, such as "Action" so that it's small enough to see what other columns might exist, if any.


Is there some way to maximize these boxes, to resize the font, or otherwise see what's going on?

Thanks for any suggestions.

I guess we might need to see a screen shot. I'm not seeing this behavior.

P.S.: For your percussion map question, I'm going to guess you meant Percussion Layout?

Sound like you have Font Scaling set too large in Windows

I use Classic Start Menu, and I cannot find anything that changes font size within Finale such that the percussion layout designer looks different; that is, it looks smaller if I hit Ctrl - but it still lops off last letters of note types. I tried a few changes in Classic Start Menu, but couldn't see any improvement.

I keep thinking I ought to be able to see the entire menu but thus far, the magic touch has evaded me.

That's what I was thinking. If you go to the Note Type button and navigate to the correct sub-menu, it tells you what sound is selected (has a checkmark next to it).
