Finale doesn’t actually embed a graphic
in your Finale document when you place a graphic. Instead, it places a
link to the graphic’s location on your computer. Use the Check Graphics
dialog box to display the location and full name of all graphics files
placed into your score.
Graphic List: Finale searches for each graphics file placed in
the current document. Any missing graphics appear marked with an asterisk
in italics. Finale also lists the filename and path for all found graphics
. Finale provides the original location and full name of the graphics
file that it was unable to locate. Found graphics and their path also
appear in the list after any missing graphics in the file.
Graphic. Select a graphic and then click this button to display
the Open dialog box where you can choose a new path for the selected graphic.

List to Clipboard. Click this button to copy the contents of the

useful if you’ll be printing from another system, and want to have all
the graphics available when you print the file.
