Finale Tip: Make your own manuscript paper

Do you need some blank manuscript paper in a pinch?  Would you rather make it yourself than download these free PDFs?  Here's how you do it in Finale:

1. Open New Document from Default Doc. (click to see full size image)

2. Get rid of the various titles (Title tool); measure numbers (measure number tool - see below); time signature, barlines, clef and default whole rests (staff tool - see below).

3. Get rid of indentation on first staff;  respace all staves (using Page Layout tool)

TA-DAHHHH.
