hello
 
1) i've got a question: how do you make libraries ?
i want to make my own accidentals (eg. a fermate but with brackets like this, but flipped "[" ==> i don't know how to explain it).
 
2) i want to indicate that the musicians shouldn't play "rubato" anymore, but how do you say this (like "In Tempo" or something ?? i dunno), but the soloist must go on playing rubato... freaked ... any suggestions ?
 
grtz

Articulations usually consist of a single symbol - an accent, staccato dot, fermata, etc.
To have an articulation that consists of more than one symbol, such as your fermata in brackets, you must first design the symbol as a shape expression, using the expression tool. To then use it as an articulation, select "create" in the articulation designer box, set the new articulation as a "shape" and pick the symbol you've designed as your new articulation.

It's a bit of work but hopefully I've pointed you in the right direction.

This is strange. In my copy of Finale I can access the Shape Designer directly from the Articulation Tool - no need to go to the Expression Tool first:

1) Articulation Tool. Click an entry (note or rest). The Articulation Selection appears.

2) Click the button "Create...". The Articulation Designer appears.

3) In the pane Symbols, for the Main Symbol, click the radio button "Shape", and click the button "Main...". The Shape Selection appears. You can do the same for the Flipped Symbol.

4) Click the button "Create...", and you end up in the Shape Designer.

By The Way: You can get the square fermatas without using the Shape Designer, since they can be found at #195 and #196 in the font Opus Special. And no, the font Opus Special is not part of the Finale installation.

But you can get Opus Special for free by downloading and installing the Sibelius demo. Installing the Sibelius demo will also give you some other fonts (you might find some of these fonts useful because of their special font characters):

Opus is the Sibelius default music font. It's similar to Maestro.

Opus Chords can be useful for fast creation of chord symbols, since it contains, as single characters, "mi", "N.C.", "omit" and many others.

Opus Percussion contains many percussion symbols. Some of the characters are pictures of percussion instruments.

Opus Plain Chords is a variation of Opus Chords.

Opus Special has the square fermatas and a LOT of other special symbols

Opus Text is designed for using music symbols (rhythms, accidentals a.s.o.) in a word processor.

The Inkpen fonts are handwritten fonts, similar to Jazz. There are Inkpen, Inkpen Chords, Inkpen Special, Inkpen Text, plus some more variations of Inkpen.

The usual indication is tempo giusto (just or precise time).
