I'm trying to write a piano score on Finale 2014 with sustain pedals such that there is not any gap between them. I have tried the Custom Line Tool from the Smart Shape Tool, adjusting each pedal's hooks as close as possible, without leaving any space uncovered. However, when playing, it sounds a gap without pedal at the ending of each pedal.

How could this task be done?

Make 2 versions:

  1. a print version (like your example)

  2. and an audio where you keep the notes like you want (try with edit note length or accents e.g. tenuto in %)


Notate the pedal under the first three notes as shown, then write simile.
