One part is off by 2 beats...

This makes me so bass bone part is offset by 2 beats. I have no idea how it happened, but now I'm having to go back and rebuild about 6 pages and it's eating up my time to work. I suspect that when using 'select partial measures' that I copied less than a full bar in somewhere and it threw off the entire line. This has happened in the past. I really don't know what I'm doing wrong or how to fix it without having to rebuild that part of the score. help!

Who's moved on to Finale 2009?

I'm still working in Finale 2007b and there are glitches that I've learned to live with.  For example, when copying a chord change, it may or may not generate guitar fretboards within the chord tool for any given chord type.  When copying the chord change, more of the fretboards multiply/generate within that particular chord type (for example a Dom7+5.)  You can have literally dozens of fretboards multiplying themselves within one chord type, and when it has too many of them in there, and you attempt to paste that chord one more time, the file may (probably will) crash and become corrupt.  Due to this glitch I've lost HOURS of work.  I called Finale and it was a 'known issue' in '07, and they say it's been fixed in '08.  

What is so different about 2008 and/or 2009?
