Chord/One-Staff Analysis

If you select this menu item, Finale will immediately analyze the notes in any chord you click (including notes sustained from an earlier beat). This command only considers notes in the staff you clicked. If it doesn't recognize the chord, it will display the Unknown Chord Suffix dialog box letting you know. See Unknown Chord Suffix dialog box.

Use the Chord Analysis Plug-in to analyze any selected region of a staff (or two staves) and add chord symbols automatically. See Chord Analysis Plug-in.

All of the analysis methods work best if you've already loaded a Chords & Fretboards Library (by choosing Load Library from the File menu). If your Finale default file is in place in the Finale directory, you don't have to load this library, since the most common chord suffixes and fretboards have been loaded for you already.
