|new in 1.61: Beam Breaker
|new in 1.60d:
Transfer Spacing between measure regions, and even between documents.
Currently transfers beat charts only, not measure widths (requests welcome)!
|new in 1.60:
If you're using Finale 2000, make sure you have the 2000b update before inserting or deleting measures!
|If you want to preserve your layout,
select the measures to be deleted, then invoke the TGTools command
"Before Deleting Measures", and finally press Delete
to actually delete them (in Mass Mover tool).
Afterward, you may want to use Join Two Staff Systems if some measures are loosely distributed.
|In this case, the measures are inserted first, and then the command "After Inserting Measures..." has to be invoked. It will ask you how many measures were inserted, and how many new staff systems should be created to accomodate the new measures.
Joining Two Staff Systems
|Normally, you'd combine two staff systems using Finale's
Fit Music command. However, if you
actually save a staff system, then Finale won't shift all the
remaining optimized systems properly. Therefore, Joing Two Staff
Systems replaces Fit Music in these
Note: you may want to use Staff List Manager's feature to Find Optimization Errors which may have resulted through combining two systems.
Shift System Optimization
|If you discover that using Finale's commands, your optimized systems are no longer correct, you can use Shift System Optimizations to move the optimizations back to the measures that they belong to.
