Join Rick Schmunk for an in-depth discussion in this video Importing and editing libraries, part of Finale 2012 Essential Training.
The templates in Finale come loaded with a collection of commonly used…expressions, articulations, and chord symbols.…In many cases, these templates allow you to create scores with exactly the…performance markings that you want.…Some styles of music however require less common markings, many of which can be…added to a score by loading one of Finale's additional libraries.…So let's start by creating a default document.…I'm going to go up to File > New and Default Document, and let me just explain…that many of the markings that we see in Finale are collected individually…into libraries like an Expression Library or an Articulation Library or a…Chord Suffix Library.…
In most cases, the defaults have gotten me through the work that I need to do.…But the one that I use the most is the Chord Suffix Library and it's an…excellent introduction into importing libraries.…So let's just take a look and see what we have.…Now I've got the Chord Tool selected and I'm going to zoom in just a little bit…so we can see more in detail and I'm going to click this first measure to attach a chord.…
