Finale Linked Parts Tip

Want to look at your linked parts AND your score simultaneously?

With the score open, go to the Window menu > New Window.  In the resulting window you can navigate to any part in your score by going to Document menu > Edit Part and specifying the desired part.

You can quickly control the view of both windows by revisiting the Window menu and specifying Tile Windows or Cascade Windows.

I enjoy editing parts in one window while viewing the score in another. When I, for example, add notes in the part, they automatically appear in the score. Note too, that you can open as many separate windows as you’d like!
