I seem to recall some way of finding measures that don't have enough beats. Does anyone know how? Or did I dream it?

I tried JW Validate but it seemed to hang.

under utilities there's check notation ( I think that's its name) and then "fill with rests", which seems to fill in missing beats.


Finale (started with ver. 3.0) using 2012 (2014 has been shelved for its lack of support for older Garritan libraries), putting Finale 25 through its paces.
Windows 8.1
basically ALL Garritan libraries, plus XSample Chamber Ensemble.

Thanks. I tried that, but it just silently does its thing without saying what it did and I don't trust it, especially where there are cues or real whole rests.

I got JW Validate to work. One selects "Notes and Music" (not "Rests"). Thanks again to Jari. I hope he hasn't lost interest.

"Check Region for Durations" works also (under Note, Beam and Rest Editing). It scans the file and gives you the choice of how to resolve the missing entries.

Thanks. Alas, it's dumb about real whole rests (which I use extensively with cues and fermatas), thinking there are too many or too few beats.

Yeah, that makes sense. I guess we should all be glad that real whole rests seem to work consistently in a wide variety of meters. I suspect that Sibelius and probably Dorico handle them in a different, more legit manner.

I think the plug-in just needs to recognize them as special. IMHO most of the MM plug-ins need revisiting and fixing or improving. Some of them broke with one Finale revision or other and didn't get tested or fixed.

I use a measure-centred expression for fermatas on empty measures. But I guess in an ideal world, Finale would handle fermatas properly.

I use the real whole rest because it automatically breaks a multimeasure rest before and after the measure with the rest. With an expression I couldn't figure out how to break afterward except by setting the measure attribute. I have a file that's a stack of fermatas that can be pasted in, so it's fairly easy to enter them.
