Font Annotation dialog box

How to get there

  1. Choose Edit Preferences and select Edit.
  2. Click the Font Annotation button.

What it does

Modern font technology is orientated towards text rendering, but symbol fonts often require more information. The Font Annotation dialog box allows you to fine-tune the height and width of each font character, allowing Finale to better handle the selection area for font characters and collision avoidance for Engraver slurs. We’ve provided annotation files for each of the fonts provided by MakeMusic. If you use an alternative music font, you should create your own font annotation file for a smoother integration with Finale.

Any Font Annotation (FAN) files found in the Font Annotation folder will be automatically loaded upon starting Finale. See Preferences-Edit for information about defining your Font Annotation folder.
