Is it possible to assign a keyboard shortcut to move one measure to the left or right in the Scroll View?
(here I am using Windows).

Technically, yes, if you use something like AutoHotKey. That's what I do. There's a script here on the forum from a while back that works like a charm. Not sure why this behavior is still not native in Finale yet, but that's another concern.

i.e.


#NoEnv ; Recommended for performance and compatibility with future AutoHotkey releases.
; #Warn ; Enable warnings to assist with detecting common errors.
SendMode Input ; Recommended for new scripts due to its superior speed and reliability.
SetWorkingDir %A_scriptDir% ; Ensures a consistent starting directory.

!Right::

WinActivate, ahk_class Finale
CoordMode, Mouse, Screen
WinGetPos, X, Y, Width, Height, ahk_class Finale

x := X+Width-30
y := Y+Height-30

Click %x% %y%

return

!Left::

WinActivate, ahk_class Finale
ControlClick, ScrollBar1, ahk_class Finale,,,, X0 Y6

return

There is a much simpler set of key presses to achieve the desired results.  I have not messed with AHK in a while, since before W10, and, at the moment, I cannot get the script to work.  Maybe someone with more time can work out the details in AHK.

The idea is this.

In scroll view, there is a much underused ALT command that highlights the number box next to "Measure:" in the lower left of the screen.  Once the box is highlighted, with whatever the current measure number is, you can press either the up or down arrow to increase or decrease the number in the box respectively.  Once you have the desired number in the box, press return and the window will scroll to that measure.  If you want to just scroll one measure at a time, just press the up/down arrow once, then press return.

The problem is how do you invoke this underused ATL command.  Normally whenever you press and release the ALT key, then letters that can be subsequently pressed are underlined indicating which letter to press to invoke a command, e.g. ALT-e will popup the Edit Menu.  In order to highlight the measure number box, you have to press ALT, and while holding it down, press the u key.  Then the box will highlight.  Notice that now the u is underlined in "Measure:" where it was not underlined simply by pressing and releasing ALT.  Note that this behavior seems to me to be a bug, but it has been this way for some time.
 
Here is an AHK script that should work, but doesn't for me, W10 F25.1.  The hotkey is ALT-[ or ALT-] for left/right scroll respectively.  Maybe somebody can figure it out.  BTW: the keystrokes work fine if you just press them in order in Finale.

Thanks for the suggestion, Motet, but,

I put on my thinking cap and resurrected that the script must be run as an administrator.  Just right click on the script icon, and choose "Run as administrator", and all is well.

Since the feature is not programmed into native Finale, you must use a 3rd party macro that can programmatically emulate the pressing of the necessary keys to scroll left/right in Scroll View.  Such is life!smilewinkgrin
