i experienced the prob in docs with no libraries as well as ones
based on my template.
it seems to only happen when hitting return after the insert, not
before. which would suggest that when i move the cursor to the right
of the text insert, finale acts as if the text insert has been
*selected*, and therefore any typing would overwrite it...?
anyways, i sent your info on to MM support, thanks.
