Tilting Mirror dialog box

How to get there

  1. Choose Window > Advanced Tools. Click the Mirror tool  image\Mirror_Tool.gif.
  2. Click an empty measure (to create a new composite mirror) or a measure with a Mirror icon (to edit a composite mirror).

What it does

The Tilting Mirror is so named because you can maneuver this one-measure "window" around the score, copying individual notes from various measures. The result is a composite mirror, each note of which is dynamically linked to the note from which it was mirrored.

The Tilting Mirror initially appears blank, because you’re viewing the measure you originally clicked (which, you’ll recall, was empty). Click the up, down, left, and right arrows to move from measure to measure in the score; the contents of each measure appear in this window.

To specify several notes of a measure you want included in your composite mirror, click the arrow buttons until the source measure appears in the window. Then drag the handle at the top of each cut bar—the dotted vertical lines—until the cut bars enclose the notes you want included in your composite mirror. Click Prev, Next, Insert, or OK; Finale asks you if you’re sure you want to add the selected notes—hereafter called a mirror fragment—to the composite mirror.
