Exploding and imploding music

If you have notated a chordal or polyphonic passage, you can tell Finale to “explode” the passage onto individual monophonic staves. For example, you can write three trumpet parts on a single staff, notated as triads; when you’re finished, Finale can explode that one staff into three individual trumpet staves, each with a single-line part.

The Explode Music command can place the top note of each chord in the top exploded part, the second note in the second, and so on. You can specify the clefs for the resultant staves beforehand.
