Short questions

Some short questions, probably simple for you...

1) In Finale, when I entern two notes which need to be tied, after entering the first note, I just press the '=' key then entering the second note. As I use 'Speedy entry mode-like' (which seem to be new in Sibelius 7), how can I make that ? Entering tie during the same process as entering notes !!!

2) How can I enter the sign quarter=120 (quater with the symbol) above a measure ?

3) How can I enter, above the staff, the special graphic sign telling that the score must be play in swign mode ? I found in the Play menu that I can force the playback to play with swing... but I would like to insert the sign in my score ... and S7 play it.

Thank you very much.

1. Choose note value on keypad. Enter note name on QWERTY keyboard. Press 'Enter' on keypad. Press 'R'. Adjust second note value on keypad if required.

Thank you to all.
In Finale, I can choose EXPRESSION menu and insert it (for tempo mark, dynamic mark and others...). And for TEXT, I choose the text menu. I understand that in S7, every expression in enter as a text symbol, isn't true ?

I also found the Concert Pitch button.

For the swing, I just have to enter the word Swing ? And Straight for returning to normal ?
