Unknown Chord Suffix dialog box

How to get there

  1. Click the Chord tool  image\Chord_Tool.gif. The Chord menu appears.
  2. Choose one of the three Chord Analysis Options from the Chord menu: MIDI Input, One-Staff Analysis, or Two-Staff Analysis.
  3. Click a chord in the score, or click a note and play a chord on your MIDI keyboard, whose suffix hasn’t been loaded into, or created in, this piece.

What it does

When Finale encounters a chord it doesn’t recognize, this dialog box appears, asking how to handle the situation. (You can dramatically decrease the number of times this box appears if you load a Chord Suffix Library into your piece—or if you have the Maestro Font Default file in place, which already has a Chord Suffix Library loaded.)
