To erase everything from a selected region

  1. Click the Selection tool  image\Selection_Tool.gif and select a region. See Selecting music for some region-selecting shortcuts.
  2. Press BACKSPACE (laptop users Fn-6) or select Edit > Clear All Items. Finale erases all music, leaving empty measures behind. (If you want to remove the measures too, double-click until the full measure stack is selected and press the delete key. Pressing the DELETE key without a full stack selection erases the music without deleting the measures themselves).
