I'm working on a suite that consists of 3 "movements" and one could optionally end the second movement or play it standalone, or go straight into the last movement. Here's a picture of how it's currently notated based on some other publications, but I've also seen where the optional ending measure has a black background and noteheads and lines are white. Is there a way to do that in Finale?

I was going to say no, but...

I entered the notes, and took a screenshot of the area. Using Preview on the Mac, I inverted the colors, and pasted it back in as a graphic.

It's certainly not perfect, but I think it's cool! I suspect that people smarter than me will come up with a better way.

I've never seen that, nor would I want to. The way it's usually done is by using ending brackets, with appropriate labels. You have to use a Staff Style to hide the repeat barlines and use the Repeat Tool to disable playback for them.

Ok thank you both. You're probably right N. Grossingink that it's not proper but I have seen it on occasion.

By the way, it's "separate," not "seperate." Think "ar."

Ah thank you Ron. I guess it's true that it's difficult to proofread one's own work.

I've just used a cut symbol in the few instances I've encountered the situation.

I would do what N. does, but I would put the "End" ending first.

The opera Hansel and Gretel has options to end Act I for an intermission or to segue into the entr'acte to join the first two acts. The publisher handles this thus:



If you look on IMSLP, though, you'll see someone went to the trouble to white-out the ending they weren't using, so it's perhaps not optimal. I would use the above layout, but make "A" and "B" endings.
