You are here: Reference > Menus > Graphics Menu > Graphics/Alignment


You must be in Page View and have a page-assigned graphic selected to use the commands in the Alignment submenu. Otherwise, the commands in the Alignment submenu are not accessible (they will be grayed out). Choose a command to specify how you want the graphic positioned on the page. Checkmarks appear by the alignment settings currently in use for the graphic. When you change the horizontal or vertical alignment of the graphic, Finale clears any manual positioning done in the score, and resets the H: or the V: positioning settings in the Graphic Attributes dialog box to zero. Choose Position from Page Edge or Position from Page Margin to align the selected graphic with the edge of the page or with the page margin, respectively.


Note. This is a useful shortcut for positioning a page-assigned graphic when you’re in Page View. If you prefer, however, you can choose the Attributes command from the Graphics menu and change the Page Alignment settings in the Graphic Attributes dialog box.
