To define Slur Placement settings for note-attached slurs

  1. Click the Smart Shape tool  image\Smart_Shape_Tool.gif. The Smart Shape menu appears.
  2. Choose Smart Shape > Smart Shape Placement. The Smart Shape Placement dialog box appears.
  3. Choose Smart Shape type > Slur.
  4. Select a slur from the list box. The slur appears in the Active display area.
  5. Drag the slur end point vertically and horizontally until the slur attaches to the notes the way you want it to attach to similar types of notes in the score. Instead of using the mouse, you can enter values into the text boxes using the measurement unit you’ve selected.
  6. Drag the other end-point of the slur to adjust it.
  7. Click Reset at any time to return the slur to Finale’s built-in settings.
  8. Click OK (or press ENTER) when you’re ready to save the new settings. Or click Cancel to discard any changes you made to the settings.

Note. All slurs of this type that you create from now on (in this document) will use the Slur Placement settings. The settings also apply to slur end points that haven’t been manually adjusted in all similar existing slurs.
