Join Rick Schmunk for an in-depth discussion in this video Using score templates, part of Finale 2012 Essential Training.
New scores can also be created by using score templates, which include…instrumentation, font style, page size and orientation, and other…important format parameters.…To create a new score from template, I'm going to go to the File menu, and choose…New > Document from Template.…This will put you into the folder with all the template subfolders, and I'm going…to choose Orchestral, and Chamber Orchestra.…And when I click the Open button, I want you to notice that it kicks us back…into the Document Setup Wizard.…And this is because of a preference in the Program Options area.…
So I'm going to Cancel out of here, and close this briefly.…And then I'm going to go to the Finale menu, Preferences, and Program Options,…and you can find the same window on a PC at the bottom of the Edit window.…The New tab clicked here on the left, you'll notice that the Display Setup…Wizard When Opening a Template is enabled.…That's why we were kicked into the Setup Wizard.…So I'll click OK, I'll go back to the File menu, New, and choose Document from Template.…
