I am running Finale 2012 on OS 10.7.4 and am having trouble figuring out how to remove an unwanted mid-staff instrument change. I've tried utilities=>change instrument and no luck. The beginning measures are trumpet and then at measure 25 it changes. The piece started as an arrangement for a different instrument set, but all of the other staves and the beginning of this one have changed instruments correctly. Can anyone point me in the right direction to figure out what I might be doing incorrectly.......... I've attached a screen print of the settings shown in score manager.

Thanks so much!

I don't see the change in your screen shot. However, there is a column that has an x and a measure number next to it. Click the x next to the measure number (25 in your example) and the change will disappear.

Thanks for the fast reply - I really appreciate it!

The only 'X' I see is the last column (after the column with the heading Ch with a value of '6' ) and when i click on that X, the whole staff disappears.....

Since the screen shot doesn't show a mid staff change, maybe there isn't one. Can we see the actual Finale file?

Thanks!

Is this a file you created yourself, or a MIDI file brought into Finale? You have a MIDI instrument change in bar 3. I deleted that and all is well.

There are different ways. It depends on whether any of the MIDI data is needed in the file. Did you put that data there? Is this an imported MIDI file? This is part of the info needed. Are you new to Finale?

Oh Zuill, I'm so sorry. Yes, I am new to Finale. The Midi data isn't needed and yes, it is imported. I'm reading the manuals as quickly as I can, but not fast enough.

For the attached file, I went to the MIDI tool, selected Continuous Data and chose Patch Change. I then highlighted the staff and chose the Clear item in the MIDI menu.
