Join Rick Schmunk for an in-depth discussion in this video Speedy note entry, part of Finale 2012 Essential Training.
As Finale evolved as a program, Simple Entry became the most important note entry…tool, but in the early days of the program, speedy entry mode was the focus, and…is still the favorite of many Finale users. Let's take a look.…So please open both files in the 4_05 folder, and you will notice that I've tiled…the windows, and positioned them as we've seen in earlier movies.…So let's choose the Speedy Entry tool; it's the one next to Simple Entry, and…click in the first measure, and you will notice that things look a little bit different.…There is a frame around the entire measure, and then the line indicating where we will…actually add a note.…
Now, Speedy Entry works a little bit backwards than Simple Entry does.…What we'll do is we'll first choose the note, and then we will enter the note by…choosing the duration.…So I will use the Up and Down Arrows to move on the staff where I want to enter…the note. In this case I want to add a C on middle C. And then I will press a…number on the QWERTY area of the keyboard to indicate the value.…
