Tempo markings  

A tempo marking in Finale can be purely graphic or it can be defined for playback. Several of these markings have been predefined and stored in a Text Expressions Library. If you load such a library (or if your Maestro Font Default file, which already contains these markings, is in place), you won’t have to create the markings anew. See also Engraver Font characters.

Once these Text Expressions have been loaded into your document (or created), you can place them into the score as expressions.
