A Bookmark marks a particular position on a page (in Page View), or a measure in the music itself (in Scroll View). This enables you to access a certain page and a precise position on that page, or to jump to a marked measure in the music with a single command, quickly and efficiently. When you call a bookmark, Finale displays the music at the bookmark’s saved location and restores the working environment that was automatically saved with the bookmark, including the View (Page or Scroll View) and view percentage; you don’t have to spend time setting up your environment every time you change your position. Another time-saving aspect of bookmarks: you can save bookmarks with standard MIDI files so you don’t have to create them again in your sequencing program; or convert sequencer markers to Finale’s bookmarks when you transcribe a standard MIDI file.
The Bookmarks submenu contains two easy-to-use commands, Add Bookmark and Edit Bookmarks, plus the names of bookmarks you have created. Use the Add and Edit Bookmarks commands to mark, edit, or delete bookmarks. Choose a bookmark name from the Bookmarks submenu to immediately jump to that position. (See Add bookmark dialog box and Edit Bookmarks dialog box.)
Note. Important: For fast, efficient entry of bookmarks, set up the view (Scroll or Page) and view percentage, and position the music on the screen before you create the bookmark. By doing this, the text boxes will accurately reflect the bookmark’s position without having to enter that information manually. Select the checkboxes for the settings you want remembered for the bookmark.
