David, under the hood (American) = under the bonnet (British) of a car. So to fix something under the hood is to fix the engine.

"Under the hood" refers to working on the engine of an automobile. The part that covers the engine is referred to as a "hood" (or "bonnet" in England.) Of course, it's less meaningful for rear or mid engine designs. The phrase refers to fixing things that make something work but are generally unseen.

Perhaps some operations that happen "under the hood" in Finale are those initiated by plugins and scripts.

There was talk this year that Apple would be focusing mostly on "under the hood" improvements for iOS 9, meaning that instead of focusing mostly on new features, they'd be cleaning existing things up to make them more reliable, faster, and perhaps cleaner. www.engadget.com/2015/02/09/ios-9-focus-is-under-the-hood/ There were objections to iOS 8, with many people feeling it was overly buggy.

I confess to having been a tad disingenuous in suggesting that I was unable to guess at the meaning of 'under the hood.' However, the responses have been useful and informative, and have gone way beyond my simple guess.

BTW, in UK motoring a 'hood' is a fold away top for the passenger compartment of a convertible car. 'Under the hood' might provide a rather different metaphor if derived from that usage …

I was away and unable to respond to the comments about Mozart playing computer games.

1. According to legend, Mozart was not only able to compose while gaming, but actually enjoyed doing so.

So I stick with K 1626.

2. It has been a while since I perused Mozart's letters, but I remember thinking at the time that Mozart was not an obsessive-compulsive gambler or the airhead portrayed in a certain play and movie, but actually the man one would have expected to be the greatest composer of all time, and one who would have used Finale to the fullest to write as much music as he could.

So again I stick with K. 1626.

To Germany's greatest composer! (toast directed at Brahms). Yes, to Mozart! (Brahms' response.) Quoted from somewhere.
