Using Finale 2009, I've been doing a marching show for a local private school and they requested that I make the parts flip folder size so the kids can march with them. I had assumed they would be just memorizing it as per my usual experience, so I have normal paper size. I cannot for the life of me figure out how to make parts into flip folder size sheets and would love any assistance on this. Worst case scenario is I can switch back to 2008 and put it all back in if it can't be done.

Thanks!

Extract parts, page format, page size 7 x 5.25".  Scale page 70%.  Top 0.5, left and right 0.25", and bottom 0.25".
 
In my print dialogue box I made a custom Marching Band size of 7 x 5.25".  When I need it I just pull it up.
 
Get a ream of paper and have it cut to this size.  Cost me $3.00.

Thanks, I found another option from the start of a new document as marching band style that preformats parts at flip folder size. I just ended up copying what I did and pasting it and printing them into PDFs that way. It was a quick and messy fix. I'll have to try what you said and see how it goes.

Thanks again!

Here's how I do it with Finale 2012 (without messing with 2-up printing, which always makes it way too small for me)...


Start by:
1. Go to Document > Page Format > Parts
2. Set margins to
a. Top = 0.2
b. Inside = 0.4
c. Outside = 1.8
d. Bottom = 6.0
3. Click “OK”

Now the settings for the parts have been defined, but not yet invoked. Here's how to do that:

1. Go to Document > Manage Parts
2. Click "Generate Parts," then click "Yes" and OK (doing this will pull the settings from the Page Format > Parts and apply them to all the parts

Once you do that, take a look at the parts. If you still have music spread across two systems:

1. Select the Page Layout tool
2. From the Page Layout menu, choose "Space Systems Evenly"
3. Choose "Space Systems On: All Parts" (Current part or score will be selected when you open the window)
4. At the bottom of the window, choose to put 6 systems per page (I didn't see any parts that had more systems than this) and click OK
