Hey, you don’t even have to edit the part before you print it (though it is highly recommended). Often there are collisions and bad system breaks that need correction in raw parts.
As of Finale 2007, we have linked parts, which is to say all the parts reside in the same file as the score. The previous method of making parts from a score involved “extracting”, which was creating completely different files, each with just a single instrument staff in it. Linked parts are automatically created in >2007 files from the Setup Wizard with no extra input from you, so if you ever open up an older file, you will have to Create the parts. You can still extract the part if you need to, though I jump through hoops to avoid that. Linked parts are SO much better. Typically, I will extract a part if something needs to be radically different from the score, or if I ever have grace notes in a two-instrument staff (which is a stupid, stupid bug that is now TWELVE years old!) When you hit Print, you have a dialogue box with the score and all the linked parts in it, so you select what you want to print. You don’t have to be in the part.
