Join Rick Schmunk for an in-depth discussion in this video Plug-ins, part of Finale 2012 Essential Training.
Finale plug-ins or macros are little programs that complete complex tasks that…would be too difficult to do manually.…Now we've used plug-ins throughout this course in a couple of videos, but let's…take a look specifically at them now.…So if you would go ahead and open the file that's in the 10_02 folder and…remember that using a plug-in starts with making a selection, now you can…select the entire score or a measure or a number of measures, but it starts with a selection.…So the first one I am going to show you, we are going to create a Coda here at Measure 12.…So I am going to go up to the Plug-in menu and I am going to choose the Measures…subcategory and choose Create Coda System.…
So in this dialog I want to create a Coda starting right here and I want to jump…it back to a measure over here and then choose a measure about right here, so…then jump to the Coda.…So let's create a To Coda Measure, let's say in Measure eight and then let's…create a sign that goes back to measure three. So I'll click OK.…
