JW Lua Scripts for FinaleYou may download the scripts for free, but use them at your own risk.
Please save your Finale document before using the plugins!
Most of the scripts were only tested very shortly nad JW Lua is also still in beta state.
Should you notice any problems, please tell us and we will try to fix the bugs if possible.
1.) Make Longa
Converts two tied double whole notes within a measure to a longa note and four tied double whole notes to a maxima note. Make sure the whole notes are in the same measure (and not tied over the barline).
It uses the longa/maxima noteheads from the free Fughetta font as default and the rest symbols from Bravura.
But it's possible to change the symbol and font.
Simply adjust: FontName, FontSize, CustomChar and RestDisplacement in the first lines of the script.
Attention: Finale doesn't support the duration of maxima notes (=32768 EDUs),
so internally they will have the length of longa notes (=16384). This might effect the music spacing and/or playback.
