Text blocks

A text block can be almost any piece of text: a note to the conductor, a page of dialogue, performance instructions, or an extra verse of lyrics, for example. You can place block text, in any font and size, anywhere in the score.

Text blocks created in Scroll View and text blocks created in Page View are behave differently. Finale assigns a text block to a measure if you are in Scroll View when the text block is created. To create a page-assigned text block, you must be in Page View.
