I'm a bit embarrassed to ask this question as I've been a Finale use from the beginning (about 20 years now), but it's something that has always bothered me. Is there a better way to enter ties for chords in Speedy?
My process is to enter the chord (talking notes here, not chord symbols) by holding down the desired notes on my MIDI keyboard and pressing the numeric keypad number that corresponds to the rhythmic value. I then hit the "=" key to insert the ties, but here is where the problem is. It seems like about half the time the curser is on the pitch of one of the notes in the chord, which results in only having a tie on that one note. That makes me have to hit the "=" key again, up or down arrow to an empty line, and then hit the "=" again to finally get the desired ties on all notes.
It seems to me that it would be great to have a preference where hitting the "=" key would default to ties on all notes, as personally I almost always want that result. There could then be some kind of command that would remove any unwanted ties if needed.
Have I missed something - is there already some kind of preference that does this? Or does someone have a more efficient way?
Thanks in advance!
