2014.5 crashes when entering/editing articulations

Postby KMFrye » Sun Mar 06, 2016 6:49 pm

I'm working on a new arrangement in Finale, a Big band version of "Music to Watch Girls By".. Notes are in, articulations added, and all it well.

Then I go to add in the expressions (FF, pp, etc) and it crashes, comes up with a crash dump list and tries to send it off to MM.

Okay, I say to myself, maybe there`s something amiss with the setup of this one file, so I go off to a tried and true document (with articulations and all in place) and try to change a p to an mp... crashes, not after I delete the existing, but as soon as I try to add the new articulation! In this case, it`s anything but a new piece, it`s one I`ve been using as a backing track for my guitar set for about nine months and it`s been played with dozens of times up to this week.

I've shut down Finale, cleaned up the temp files, and rebooted the PC. Nope. no help. Something has crept in while I wasn't looking, and now I need to find it and get rid of it!

I am also worried that all my pieces are in this kind of trouble, not to mention the small issue that I can`t put any articulations into newly-created ones.

Anyone else had this kind of crash?

I will likely open a ticket with MM about it if I can't work it out fairly soon... but it's Sunday. so if I can get it worked out before tomorrow, I may be able to add the fix to it.

Update- went in to C:\Users\username\app date\local\temp and found there are about 70 empty folders under FINALE... nothing in 'em at all. No crash dump info to be had, unfortunately.
