New Features in Finale 2011
For complete information, see the "What's New" topic in the Finale 2011 User Manual.
Hiding Empty Staves.
Finale makes it easy to hide staves that don't contain music, in your whole score or selected regions.
If you choose to hide empty staves in your score, and then subsequently move measures or add notes to the hidden staves, the appropriate notes and staves now automatically appear.
Hiding Staves Containing Music.
Finale makes it easy to hide staves that contain music. Need parts for an instrument that you don't want to appear in the score? Simply hide staves in the score.
It’s now incredibly easy to move staves. Want to increase the distance between staves? Click and drag. Your music updates automatically as you drag and you receive on-screen feedback about the distance between the staves and what staves will be impacted.
Want to reorder staves and/or groups? Now it's easily done instantly in one place.
Enhanced Groups and Brackets.
We've simplified the process of editing group names and brackets, and to change groups and brackets for the whole score or just selected regions – and groups automatically adjust their measure ranges when measures are added or removed. It's also easy to show the full staff and group names for any system (very helpful when you're starting a new movement).
Music containing Lyrics Looks Better – Automatically.
The default music spacing of music with lyrics is more intelligent, and multiple verses of lyrics are better aligned. Lyrics and music space together more intelligently – the way an engraver would prefer.
In addition to better music spacing on melismatic passages, word extensions now automatically draw to the next rest. Should you choose to edit a word extension, your edits are permanently "locked down," and you can freely drag word extensions to subsequent systems.
Intuitive Lyric Entry Interface.
Lyric fonts, word extensions, and hyphens now instantly update as you enter and look exactly as they will print. Should you want to fine-tune, you're free to do so with improved handles, drag-select control, and visual feedback including lyric attachment lines.
Whether you are typing directly into the score or click-assigning, Finale's new Lyrics window accompanies you throughout your lyric entry process.
Type Into Score and Auto Update.
Finale 2011 makes it much easier to access multiple fonts within lyrics. Now you have access to a text menu when you're typing into score. This makes it easy to change fonts and sizes while you're typing, and your lyrics instantly appear just as they will print out. Similarly all word extensions always update automatically.
Automatic Lyric Numbering.
Finale can now automatically add verse numbers to your lyrics.
Additional Music Education Worksheets.
Finale 2011 includes more than 350 education worksheets and more than 400 music education flash cards found in previous versions of Finale, plus these additions:Dozens of Jazz Improvisation Worksheets: Finale files that playback with the free, downloadable Finale reader and offer tips to beginning improvisers AND include jazz rhythm section accompaniment.

A few new additions to the existing collection of music-themed puzzles and games.
Finale AlphaNotes Font. Created for use with beginning music students, the FinaleAlphaNotes font places note names inside noteheads. In addition to note names, sharps, flats, and solfège syllables are also provided. Finale 2011 also automates the process of applying these new noteheads to any region of any piece.
Finale Percussion Font. Many publishers use icons to represent standard percussion instruments in their scores. This font contains the most complete collection of percussion characters available. Also included are handbell symbols and many unique characters including castanets, sine waves, scribbles, and more.
Finale Mallets Font.
The Finale Mallets font includes icons to represent any variety of mallet usages, including the ability to create cross-mallet symbol. For example, you could use two of the zero-width mallet characters to indicate the performer should use a yarn mallet in the left hand and a hard mallet in the right hand.
Apply Capo Chords.
Easily add capo chords and fretboards to your arrangement using this new utility.
Finale now includes more than 375 Garritan sounds. New additions include bass trombone, brass section, children ahs, flute section, electronic drum kit, synth space voice, synth warm pad, and steel drums.
