Document menu

Expanded Document menu

How to get there

The Document menu is one of Finale’s unchanging menus; that is, it appears regardless of which tool is selected.

What it does

This menu contains the keys to Finale’s notational flexibility. Whatever notational conventions you subscribe to, no matter what publishing specs you prefer, chances are good that a Document menu command will accommodate you. Each command brings up a dialog box that governs some aspect of the way Finale displays the music in the active document—its layout and positioning variables, the fonts, musical symbols, and clefs it uses, for example.
