I would like to share an update with you concerning our new feature to import PDFs into Finale. The blog article we shared previewing the feature sparked an energized discussion from publishers, composers and users concerning the broad accessibility of PDFs and copyright considerations.
One of my favorite shortcuts allows me to perform basic cross-staff beaming functions from within in any tool that allows staff selection (Selection tool, Staff tool, Measure tool, Time Signature tool, Clef tool, etc.), without having to switch to the Note-Mover tool or a plug-in.
One of my favorite time-saving Finale tips is to use the Edit Filter. This allows you to control what elements you copy from measure to measure (or even score to score).
Talk to people who spend much of their day using Finale – or any other software – and you’re likely to hear that they make extensive use of keyboard shortcuts to maximize their efficiency.
