Choose Automatic (or press CTRL+SHIFT+F) to have Finale determine the tie’s position over or under tied notes depending on whether the notes appear above or below the middle line of the staff. A checkmark appears next to Automatic.
If tied notes appear above the middle staff line and Automatic is selected, Finale always places the tie over the notes; if the tied notes appear below the middle staff line, the tie appears under the notes. If you subsequently change keys or transpose notes, Finale will reverse the tie’s direction as necessary.
For more information on all aspect of ties, see Document Options-Ties (under the Document menu).
