Help with proper Finale NotePad 2012 formatting and stuff
« on: April 28, 2017, 11:34:03 PM »

Hey everyone, I recently finished a duet arrangement for Pokemon Mystery Dungeon 1's Frosty Grotto, and I am interested in submitting it. The only problem I have encountered is that I have a very poorly formatted Finale file. Since I use Musescore as my primary arranging program, I had no difficulty creating the PDF and MIDI file. However, I did what I read to do - export the Musescore file as a .xml and import it with Finale NotePad 2012 - but the formatting is very messed up.

While is has proper formatting on the Musescore-Exported-PDF (Screenshots: https://gyazo.com/7a50e1231fb660c9437ae041eb487121 and https://gyazo.com/da111bc894142a7011b014c9c54012ef), the imported Finale file is very messed up (https://gyazo.com/153c1926aeb15fe49d8bd011f852b1f7 and https://gyazo.com/12951de31aacf092e2dbe282b501d857). I was wondering if there is any way to fix this formatting; I have very limited experience with Finale and find it not very user-friendly.

Can anyone offer some help (if necessary I can send the MIDI and PDF files to anyone who wants them)?
