|Per a discussion on the Mac forum, I am at a loss. I was directed to the tutorial on Entry methods, page 14. It states there that if, in Simple Entry, one overfills a measure, it automatically splits the note so that the extra beats are tied into the next measure. I've been using Finale for 20 years and have never had this behavior. What am I missing? If there is a setting I am missing, please educate me.
P.S.: With the mouse I enter a half note then a whole note in a 4/4 bar. According to the tutorial, the whole note should split into 2 tied halves spanning the barline. But that doesn't happen.
P.P.S.: Incomplete documentation strikes again. Since I rarely use QWERTY entry in Simple, and the tutorial failed to specify computer keyboard entry with caret, I would never have thought that the behavior would not be available with the mouse. I generally use MIDI input, but I use mouse for quick fixes. Upon reading of the fix for overfilled measure accidentals not tying across a barline, I thought to test it. Too bad the instructions were incomplete.
