menu Shortcuts Plug-in

How to get there

Choose Plug-ins > TGTools > Menu Shortcuts.

What it does

The menu Shortcuts plug-in allows you to assign special key combinations to any of Finale’s menu items.

Note. Keyboard shortcuts defined with the menu Shortcuts plug-in take precedence over existing keyboard functionality in Finale, as well as any keyboard shortcuts defined using Simple Entry’s Edit Keyboard Shortcuts. For example, if you use the menu Shortcuts plug-in to assign SHIFT+1 to Select Display Colors under the View menu, the SHIFT+1 keystroke will no longer be available for assigning Metatools in any of the Main Tools, nor will this keystroke switch to the 64th Rest Tool while using Simple Entry.

Key Assignment

How to get there

What it does
