Speedy Tie Direction/Automatic

Choose Automatic (or press COMMAND+SHIFT+F) to have Finale determine the tie’s position over or under tied notes depending on whether the notes appear above or below the middle line of the staff.

If tied notes appear above the middle staff line and Automatic is selected, Finale always places the tie over the notes; if the tied notes appear below the middle staff line, the tie appears under the notes. If you subsequently change keys or transpose notes, Finale will reverse the tie’s direction as necessary.


Tip: Globally set the direction of ties in Document Options-Ties. From the Document menu, choose Document Options and select Ties.
