For Finale 27.3 and later, you do not need to download this plug-in separately. Use the shipping version instead, and consult the official Finale documentation on Mac and Windows for more information.
For Finale 25 through 27.2. This Finale plug-in copies a page layout from a source part to the currently displayed part, through an easy-to-use user interface. The measure layout for each system gets locked, so the layout will remain the same in source and destination. It will check that measures are empty before parts with multi-measure rests are copied.
The window (where the source part is selected) is modeless, so it can be open while moving between different parts (or documents).
The following are copied from the source part:
- Page settings (size/margin/etc)
- Staff system settings (size/distance between/page breaks/etc)
- Measure with (+additional space before/after measure)
- Multimeasure rests
