What it does

In this dialog box, you can specify a uniform distance between staves in the Finale document that results from your MIDI file transcription, as well as the distance between the top staff and the top page margin. Note that you can override these settings on a staff-by-staff basis by clicking the staff name and changing the Distance number in the Track/Channel Mapping dialog box.
