What it does
This plug-in allows you to automatically
define a coda, including a gap between measures in order to create an
independent coda system on the same line. You are also given the option
to add a Coda marking or symbol as well as the text repeat markings “D.C.
al Coda” or “D.S. al Coda.” You can also add a Segno ()
and “To Coda” marking, and specify the appropriate measure for these items.
Finale defines playback automatically based on your settings. A double
barline is added to the end of the measure prior to the new coda system
Space Between Systems. Here, enter the space desired between the first
measure of the coda system and the previous measure. The default space
is .5 inches. The value is represented in the measurement unit selected
in the Measurement Units submenu of the Edit menu.
