Resize tool

Noteman says: View the Fitting measures and systems QuickStart Video for an overview.

This tool lets you reduce or enlarge a note, group of notes, staff, system, page, or all the music in a piece. When you use it at the note-by-note level, you can create cue notes; at the staff level, you can create a cue staff. However, you’ll probably use this tool most often to reduce the overall size of the music. It’s important that you choose Utilities > Update Layout after you reduce or enlarge a system, a page, or the entire piece so that Finale corrects any irregularities in measure widths introduced by the change.

When this tool is selected, Finale displays the Resize dialog box—where you can specify the amount of reduction or enlargement—any time you click a musical element (see Special mouse clicks, below). See Reducing/Enlarging for further instructions.
