Hi

I am trying to select the menu item "Remove Manual Adjustments" for the Chord context menu. Can't find a way to "control click" or "Right click" ... has anyone found a way to access the context menus ?

I don’t think this command can be done directly or indirectly using a Finale script (but I’d be glad to be wrong).

As far as I know there is no way to mimic a right mouse click. The same applies to the Back key (PC). However, if the chord handle is selected, pressing the Back key will remove manual adjustments for that chord.

Select chord—press Back Key is efficient enough that it may substitute for a short script in this case.

Good Luck

I am working on Mac, and I don't know if there is any substitute for Back Key. Thanks for the tip though, I'll try to see if I can find one.

In the Mac version of Finale it is the Clear key that removes manual adjustments.
Works for many items: chord symbols, expressions, articulations, syllables &c.

Thanks Peter ! Very usefull ! I was able to remove the manual adjustments with the Clear Key. I could not do it with the script though. Have you ever done it ? I'll let you know if I find a way.
