You have considerable control over the flags on single eighth notes (and smaller values) in Finale. The typical use for these parameters is to adapt a music font to Finale other than Finale’s Maestro font or Adobe’s Sonata font. Because different fonts use different spacing and positioning schemes for their music characters, you may need to adjust some of these variables in order to accommodate a different music font.
