Hi,
If I Use the Wizard to open new document,
There is no Jazz fornts, only Broadway or Maestro.
Anyway, let's say I choose Handwrite (Broadway).
In that case if I go to Document-->Select Default fonts --> Change the Chord font to JazzText.
Now if I try to put chord "G:0" the table is opened but I don't see any Triangle chord (Major 7).
 
If I open a new "Template document" (Not via Wizard), Choose "Lead Sheet Jazz Font"
Then If I choose chord "G:0" I can see the triange on chord number 90.
If you go to Document-->Select Default fonts --> chord font -->
you will se that it is "JazzText".
 
1) So if it's the same fonts why I can't see triangle in #90 if I used the Wizard-->Broadway platform?
 
2) Is there any way to add the Jazz types into the Wizards?
(Currently all are Maestro except Handwrite which is Broadway)
 
Thanks a lot
Jerome

What program and version are you using? What is G:0? You can type GMaj7 right into the score, and it is in the chord library.

John,
Using the :0 suffix automatically opens the chord window, if you don't know which slot a chord is in, or you can't figure out how to type a suffix that Finale will accept.

Jerome,
As John said, you can type Gmaj7 into your score, and it will show up. It's in slot 6. If you are looking for the triangle symbol, though, that is not there. You could start with the Jazz Lead sheet, and create your own template from there.
