Wow thanks. That's some progress.

Unfortunately, this creates Thysius style tabs with the 7th line always
present, which is weird to read as I tend to confuse the lower courses.

Is there a possibility to hide the 7th line and only show when it is
used, like "normal" tabs? :)

Just in case it wasn't clear, I'm talking about MuseScore, not Finale.

  Also, here's the relevant online help URL for the Staff/Part Properties

Right-click the staff and select Staff/Part Properties from the context dialog. 
There are actually two context dialogs, so you might need to move the cursor 
and click a few times to get the one with this option. Use the dialog's Edit 
String Data (near the bottom) to add strings and define their pitches (you can 
also change the pitches for the first six from their defaults).

    If you have a newer version, the lute can be found in the instrument

    When you use the wizard, there should be a menu "plucked instruments"
    filed under "early music".

    Click "Lute (Tablature" and you get a 6 line staff.

    Edit as usual, but you get letters. As I said, more than 6 courses
    doesn't seem to be possible.

    If you find out how to add diapasons, please let me know.

      For French tabs with good optics you can also use MuseScore, which
      also free.
      However I have not yet (on Linux) found any support of more than 6
