Smart Shape Palette




How to get there

Click the Smart Shape tool image\Smart_Shape_Tool.gif. Choose Smart Shape Palette from the Window menu, if it isn’t already selected.

What it does

This resizable, movable, reshapable, dockable palette contains icons representing slurs, crescendo hairpins, brackets, dashed and solid lines, and other intelligent, self-stretching Smart Shapes.

Finale automatically determines the direction of measure-based Smart Shapes (though you can override the direction if you choose) by whether the cursor is above or below the middle staff line.
