Utilities/Rebar/Rebar Music

The Rebar Music command is useful after you insert or delete notes, halve or double note values, and so on. The command automatically re-distributes the notes of your piece so that each measure contains the correct number of beats, according to the time signature. (Finale automatically rebars the piece each time you change the time signature, unless you turn off this option in the Time Signature dialog box.) When you rebar a region that contains partly-filled measures, Finale does not "pad" the measures with rests. If a measure contains two quarter notes (and no rests) in each of two measures, and you rebar the music, you'll end up with one measure containing four quarter notes. (You must enter the rests to maintain their positions.)
