Finale: quick slurring shortcut?

Recommended Posts

I'm wondering if there's a shortcut for slurring a fixed number of notes in one click. It would be really useful for say... long string parts where I want every group of four sixteenth notes in one bow... but it's awfully painful to go through 30 bars of clicking and dragging the slur marking for all four or five staves. And what if I'm writing something where it is more sophisticated than just that?

So I'm looking for a macro where I can for instance hold '4' and double click and it slurs 4 notes automatically. Is there such thing or a way to program it? I haven't been able to figure it out, but it would be a godsend.

Doubt it. That'd be too intuitive and practical. :doh: Could be wrong, though. I personally am totally not aware of a way...

What you CAN do is set the "copy" filter to only accept smart-shapes and copy/paste your slurs. For example if you have thirty measures of straight sizteenths that you want slurred the same way, do the first one. Then copy that measure and paste for all other similar measures.

That help?

Yeah, but if every bar of sixteenths is different pitches... then that ... OH you can FILTER? That's not what I'm looking for, I'd still like to see some point and click work, but this filtery thing might be useful.
