Extracting parts into separate documents
is no longer required to produce printed sheet music - you can print Linked
Parts directly from the main project file. See Linked Parts and
Print dialog box.
When you extract parts, Finale creates a separate document for each selected
part. The extracted part’s formatting and content is identical to the
original Linked Part from the main project file. Finale generates a separate
file using the Linked Part as the source.
- Save the full score document.
- Choose File > Extract Parts.
The Extract Parts dialog box appears.
- Specify the instruments you want to extract
by checking the desired parts (and/or the score).
- Enter a file name for the resultant documents.
If you select the Generate Names From radio button Finale proposes
the folder (same as the score file) then %f %p. The %f will be replaced
by the file name and %p will be replaced by the part name of the linked
part. If you want another combination of variables to construct your file
name with, see Extract Parts
dialog box for details. If you select the Prompt for Each Name radio
button Finale will pause between each file to ask you to title the next
your location to save your documents. Regardless of how file names
are generated, it is wise not to give your extracted-part files the same
name as an existing file in the same folder.
- Click OK (or press RETURN).
Finale will generate an individual Finale document for each part, according
to your specifications.
