Finale AlphaNotes font

Created for use with beginning music students, the Finale AlphaNotes font places note names inside noteheads. Use one of the AlphaNotes templates (located in the Finale/Music Files/Templates/Education Templates folder) to use these characters automatically. See Templates.

To enter a character, hold the ALT key while using the numpad to enter the number combination listed in order. The numbers do not need to be held like the ALT key. When the ALT key is released, the character appears. All of these characters can also be selected by using Text > Font to choose the desired font and Text > Inserts > Symbol to open the Symbol Selection dialog box.
