Thank you in advance for your help. Finale 126.96.36.1994 on Mac
-I select Chord Symbol tool
-I select the note I want to put the chord over by clicking it
-the flashing cursor appears above the note
-I type in the chord symbol
-I hit shift+R arrow to move to next beat OR tab to move to next measure and the chord symbol drops to the last system on the page.
-when I scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on the chord symbol, it shows that it is linked to the note I added it to in the first system by the dotted blue line, but the line goes all the way from the bottom system to the top.
-it doesn't do this at the beginning of the document, but seems to maybe be doing it in the measures that I had to add to the piece
