    FWIW, I've never used the brass band template that used to be supplied with Finale; it was so riddled with errors that by the time I'd tried to correct them all it was quicker to set up my own from...

    I admit to being confused by Fsteers examples. I'm aware that in some parts of the world there is a system of writing for Bb tuba transposed but still in bass clef. We once had a visiting Tuba player...
