Chord/Show Fretboards

When this item is selected, Finale displays full-blown fretboard-chart diagrams beneath each chord symbol in the score (or will do so as soon as you add chord symbols).

Finale uses the Lowercase setting for the Root Scale Tone in the Chord Definition dialog box to determine whether it will display the corresponding major or minor fretboard diagram. When you don’t specify a particular suffix and Lowercase is selected for the Root Scale Tone, Finale will display a minor fretboard diagram; if Lowercase is not selected, Finale will display a major fretboard diagram.

When you choose Show Fretboards a second time, all fretboards disappear. See Fretboard diagrams and Chord Definition dialog box–Show Fretboard for more information.
