this discrepancy seems to have been because i was using hidden noteheads (via JW change/noteheads/visibility), did some tests with different sizes of blank noteheads in my fonts and can find a workable solution.
was using hidden noteheads and stems for very specific situations where the spacing shouldn't be affected by them but needed something there for enhanced beam extension control. so "hiding" them in speedy wasn't an option. but still wrong that the visualization in finale didn't correspond to the output!!! > any idea why the positioning is different on extended beams and stem > connections? in the pdf, finale is in the background, acrobat in the front. > > https://www.dropbox.com/s/9lkkta76i34lmjn/SN_beamext-stemconnect.pdf?dl=0 > > the stem connection is set up in finale and already what it looks like in the > stem connections library and what it looks like on the page are different, > and a 3rd version happens when printing to pdf (with the system or with > acrobat professional). > > also the beam extensions do not behave right, the output is not what i input. > obviously in a score like this, that is a really big problem! > > any ideas? -- neueweise -- fonts for new music and traditional notation http://newmusicnotation.com/fonts shirling & neueweise | http://newmusicnotation.com new music notation + translation + arts management [FB] http://facebook.com/neueweise| [TW] http://twitter.com/neueweise _______________________________________________ Finale mailing list Finale@shsu.edu https://lists.shsu.edu/mailman/listinfo/finale To unsubscribe from finale send a message to: finale-unsubscr...@shsu.edu
