The staff separators plug-in (on F2009) is great. I've always wanted to
do this. However I am having a problem that the separators are also
showing up on the linked parts. There are unwanted there, of course. I
see no way to prevent them from being added to the individual parts.
Next best thing would be to make them unprintable. That is proving to
be a problem too. You can't go to the linked parts and just delete
them, because that deletes them from the score. I thought about setting
them to white text, but evidently Finale doesn't allow me to change the
font color. That seems like a really lame restriction.
I thought at one point, Finale had properties attached to text times
that would control whether or not a text item was printed. I can't find
anything like that now.
I tried dragging the separators off the bottom of the pages on each of
my linked parts. Even that doesn't work. When I turned the page into a
PDF using PDFCreator, it ended us scaling my page down enough so that it
could include those separator marks. D'oh
So what gives? There surely must be a way to deal with this.
