When Show Handles is selected (a checkmark appears next to the command), Finale displays a small square handle on each note, stem, beam, tie, or dot (depending on which tool you're using). When Show Handles is not selected, the handles are hidden. This can be a useful feature if the handles are obscuring some elements in your score. All the tools work the same way when handles are hidden, except that instead of clicking a handle, you'll have to click at the location where a handle would be if it were visible.
