The attached pdf has two measures, 4 parts, one whole note in each part. Finale says I have parallel octaves, but I can't for the life of me figure out where. The chart at the bottom of the page is my analysis of what's going on. Being a math nerd, I've done every possible combination of parts. The first column compares the Soprano part to the other three. The second column compares the Alto to the Tenor and Bass, and the final column compares Tenor to Bass. Each box has the notes from the two voices and the resulting intervals. Nowhere in my chart does a box have two octaves or unisons.

Is this a bug with Finale 2003a? (I know: I might as well be carving on stone tablets...) If so, then I'll just not use this utility and trust my own eyes and ears.

But, if it's an error in my understanding, then I want to learn what that is.

Thanks!
