Finale 2011 Box ShotLast week I did a review of the new release of Finale 2011 and although I was pretty happy with it there was one thing that I just could not figure out how to do, even with the help of the online help files and tutorials.  Luckily it seems that Justin Phillips over at Finale is either psychic or had read my review because he just posted a blog post on how to use the AlphaNotes font in Finale 2011.

It turns out that if you do it one specific way it is pretty easy to use AlphaNotes, but it requires you to start a new document using one of the education templates.  I'm still a little perplexed on how to force a single note or phrase into AlphaNotes but I wanted to put kudos out to Justin for pointing out at least one way to get started using it.
