What is Finale's solution to being able to differentiate half note from quarter note in tablature notation? By default on a tab staff, all notes just show up as numbers. When stems are added to a tab staff in the staff attributes, then both half and quarter notes have stems, and eighth notes (and shorter duration) have stems with flags. When augmentation dots are added, we can see them in the tab. When rests are added, we can see them in the tab. When tuplets are added, we can see them in the tab. How do we see the difference between half and quarter notes?
Evidently (based on web searching), other software can encircle the half note, or have different length of stem for different duration. Like this: Notes-and-Beat-Displayed-in-Tablature.png
In isolated, stand-alone tab arrangement, perhaps the spacing is a clue to the note duration. However, this is not notation, and it unravels when a tab staff is in a part with other staves, especially those with lyrics where the spacing is set by the readibility of the text.
