I have just started testing Finale 2007 and 2006 with the new Templates.  I just thought I would let you guys know, or make you aware, that the templates are set to use the FULL/LITE percussion mappings.  If you want to use the AUTO R/L mappings you will have to go into the Percussion Map selection and choose that Map manually.


1.) Staff Tool -->Double click on Bass Line's first measure to get the Staff Attributes[list]

2.) Where it says ";Notation Style : Percussion";
          -Click ";SELECT";

3.) Choose Bass Line Auto R/L and click ";EDIT";


5.) Click OK, SELECT, OK now this staff would be Auto R/L.

I hope this is all useful information witht eh new 2007 coming out and the new templates.  Let me know if this is at all confusing.

This is correct. When I updated the Finale maps and templates I Decided that because each staff needed to be set to some percussion map using the Full/Lite for the battery would be the most useful. Likewise, the 2 percussion staffs in the pit are set to Rack A for 'Percussion 1' and Rack B for 'Percussion 2'. If anyone finds any errors/mistakes let me know or if there are any questions feel free to contact me.

Cool.  Thanks Ted.  I just thought I would make people aware.  I can see people (like me) just starting to write and then wondering what the heck is going on.  :) 

Good work though.  I think they look great and seem to be looking great in Finale 2007 as well.  One question about the Bass Unison clicks  I will start a new post.
