Chord/Substitute Symbols

When selected, Finale substitutes the Maestro diminished () and half-diminished () symbols when you type "o" (lower case letter o) or "%" (SHIFT+5), respectively. When not selected, Finale simply maps the keys directly, without substituting symbols. Deselect this command if you are using a font other than Maestro, and want to use the characters mapped to the o and SHIFT+5 slots in that font.

Note: This command is used for chord entry only. Choosing this command will not affect any characters on chords already entered in the document
