If you want to go that route for measures 66 and 67, you should probably make the notes cross-staff instead.

To raise repeat boxes, click the repeat tool, then click and drag the mouse so as to select every handle present on the boxes simultaneously, after which you can tap "up" until the boxes reach the desired height.

Measure 69 currently has a half note and a dotted half note in the right hand, which add up to five beats—one short of a 6/4 measure. But I truly believe you'd be better off writing it in 5/4 with a ritenuto.

Usually, you can fix misaligned layers by deleting the notes and entering them with the mouse at the precise height you want them.

This is what I meant by "continuing the right-hand motif":

Naturally, you'd drop this pattern whenever the countermelody shows up.
Not exactly sure how to cross staff on finale. Also, would cross-staffing in the beginning scales work too?

Oh, right, I totally forgot about the right hand. I mean, changing that to a whole note should be fine, right? And timing wise, I do feel that 6/4 w/ritudendo fits well.

I'll try.

I mean, I personally don't know how to feel about doing right handed melodies of sorts, especially complicated ones, in the left hand. You probably could tell from my previous decisions and/or what I've said. It probably is just me thinking of me over other people, but like, it feels a bit off still, if that makes sense. Also, how would the secondary melody come into play at m110, then?



Edit: Also, I forgot to mention that I can't do chord rolls between layers. Blame Allegro.

Cross-staff works with the Note Mover tool. If you don't have access to it, I could do it for you. What do you mean by the "beginning scales"?

Writing measure 69 in 6/4 might match the Finale playback to the original soundtrack better, but it looks out of place from a music theory perspective: here you have this rising motif that's repeated several times as four eighth notes, and then when there's a slight variation at the end, suddenly none of the notes have the same rhythmic notation.

Naturally, you'd drop the sixteenth-note motif for the last beat of every measure past 110 in order to play the countermelody, but it was just a suggestion anyway; do what you see fit.

Can you not even select the character for rolling chords, apply it to one note, and stretch it to cover both layers? Even if it doesn't work in the Finale playback, it's still necessary for the actual sheet.

I forgot to mention it in my last post, but in measure 97, the left hand upper part's rhythm is a double-dotted half note (or a half note tied to an eighth) followed by two sixteenths; and in measure 101, it's a double-dotted half note followed by a single eighth on C (there is no A).

I don't have the note mover tool, I'm using Finale Allegro 2007. Also, I can't access later finale versions because of this. And I mean any one of the first few measures where the whole Amin maj7 scale (and other chords) are going across both hands.

I guess that 5/4 should work better then.

I rather keep the current left hand for m110+.

I can make it work for appearance, but not playback. (Edit: Never mind, somehow it worked)

I can make it tie with an eighth, but I don't believe I have access to double dotted notes.

Haven't had much feedback for the past two weeks, but I've made a few quick changes.
-Added some text to mention how parts of the first few pages are only played on the second part (m27-m35 might be a bit unclear).
-Changed a note in m111 to make it less difficult / easier to play.
