Open/Save File dialog box

Note: the Open/Save File dialog box may appear slightly different depending on which version of Windows you are using.

How to get there

This dialog box appears in a number of circumstances in Finale with varying titles (Open, Save As, Load Library, etc.):

  • Choose File > Open, Open Worksheets & Repertoire, Save, or Save As.
  • Choose File > New > Document From Template.
  • Choose File > ScoreMerger and click Add Files.
  • Choose File > Import > MusicXML.
  • Choose an item from the File > Export submenu.
  • Choose File > Load Library to open Finale libraries which contain music markings that you can use in your score.
  • Choose File > Save Library to save Finale libraries which contain the current set of music markings present in your score. This dialog box works the same as any standard Windows Open or Save dialog box. The only difference is the File Type.
  • Choose MIDI/Audio > Audio Track > Load Audio.
  • Choose Graphics > Place Graphic (or when you click in the Shape Designer's drawing area when the Graphics tool is selected).

What it does

In this dialog box, you can specify what kind of file you want to save or open.
