Speedy/Insert Notes or Rests

When Insert Notes or Rests is selected, Finale will insert the note or rest to the left of the cursor. If Use MIDI Keyboard is selected and you are holding down a key on your MIDI keyboard, you will insert a note. Otherwise, you will insert a rest. If Use MIDI Keyboard is not selected, press OPTION+shift and the number (using the keyboard, not the number pad) representing the rest duration you are inserting. To toggle Insert mode on or off, hit Insert or SHIFT+I0 (zero) on the number keypad.

Tip: Remember to turn off this mode, by selecting the item again, when you’re done inserting.
