Implode Music dialog box

How to get there

  1. Click the Selection tool  image\Selection_Tool.gif, and select a region of measures.
  2. Choose Utilities > Implode Music.

You can also use a Selection tool Metatool: press the 1 key with selected measures. Or, hold down I while dragging selected measures to a destination.

What it does

When you implode music, Finale condenses the music on the selected staves onto a single staff, a feature useful for creating piano reductions, for example. This dialog box lets you specify where you want Finale to place the imploded music.

Note. If you place the music into the top staff, the music in the selected region for that staff will be lost.
