Set Placeholder dialog box

How to get there

  1. Choose Window > Advanced Tools. Click the Mirror tool  image\Mirror_Tool.gif.
  2. Click any measure that contains notes. The Placeholder dialog box appears, letting you specify how many "blank" beats you want (for use in creating a pickup measure).
  3. Make a selection and click OK.

What it does

If your piece has more than one staff, Finale is asking whether the pickup measure only occurs in the staff you clicked, or in all staves.
