A bookmark denotes 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 and view percentage; you don’t have to spend time setting up your environment every time you change your position. You can also save bookmarks with standard MIDI files, so you don’t have to spend time creating them again in your sequencing program, and you can convert sequencer markers to Finale bookmarks when you import a standard MIDI file.
For fast, efficient entry of bookmarks, choose Page View or Scroll View, choose a 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 to be remembered for the bookmark.
