Here’s a quick Finale 2014 tip for educators. When preparing exercises for students, especially for harmony and voicing exercises, I usually want to separate each measure into small adjacent staff systems for students to write on. The way to do this is to go to “Page Layout” and uncheck “Avoid Margin Collisions”. This will let you move individual staff systems to wherever you want.
If you want to place the whole note in the middle of the measure, you will need to download a JW Plugin called “JW Change“. This plugin does a lot of things, including moving the note entry horizontally within a measure.
Here’s a video of how I did my class exercise in Finale 2014.
