I am a newbie to Finale after having used another product for several years. Overall I am very happy with FInale, especially with the online help documents but I am having trouble finding the answer with this question. Perhaps I just don't know the right terminology to get a hit in the help files.
I am creating the parts from the file, and want to balance the music on the page so that they look professional, and easy to read. My question is how to arrange measures across lines. For example, the last two lines on a given part contain 10 and 2 measures. How can you move the measures from the line with 10 down to the line with 2 so that the balance is 6 and 6, for example. I have tried using the measure tool to space them, but all I can manage is stretching one measure at the expense of its neighbor. What am I missing?
It probably doesn't mater, but I am runing Finale release 25 at the latest release level on Windows 10.
Thanks for your assistance.
