  2. Then, add a TIFF graphic and click Begin Recognition. Before opening the file, Finale prompts you with this dialog box.

What it does

This dialog box allows you to select instruments for scanned staves so that Finale applies the correct staff name and instrument transposition when the staves are converted into a Finale document.
