One of the fabulous features of Windows Finale 2014.5 is the ability to dynamically link the parts and the score. This means that a format change no longer needs to be re-stated on 17 individual parts. It can be initiated in the score, and the parts inherit the modification.
Is there a way to:
1. Give the top of page 2 a more generous margin on ALL of the parts? (Note that the transition to page 2 will NOT occur on the same bar in the trombone parts as on the sax parts.)
2. Force the coda to begin on a new system with a .5" indentation?

In the pulldown menu:
Document/Page Format/Parts, you'll see all of the parameters which will be used in the parts. You can set a larger top margin to be used on page 2 thru ???

You can use measure attributes to define the 1st coda measure to begin a system. But the indentation will have to be set manually. There might be a plugin which speeds up the coda creation process, but I use them so seldomly, I indent manually.

If your parts have a similar layout to each other, you can use the JW plugin, copy part layout to automate that process.

Thank you so much!
i do not see a "JW plug in" under the "plug in" menu or in the manual.
Are you in Windows Finale 2014.5?

Here is the page in the manual which forces the coda onto the next system:

Thanks to all who helped with this.
