Unicode Fonts

Unicode is a character coding system that enables a single font to include a much larger selection of characters and symbols. (For a detailed explanation of Unicode and Unicode standards, visit the Unicode Consortium's website.)

Using Unicode fonts, Finale users have the ability to enter text in Russian, Chinese or other languages that use non-Latin based characters. Typically, this will be done using the Lyrics tool, Text tool or Expression tool. Unicode characters are also available one at a time as individually inserted symbols, or can be copied and pasted from outside of Finale.
