One of the works I presented here before were two of my Three preludes for Harp. The first prelude ends about half way a page. I would like to have the second prelude started on that same page, but no matter how much I search, I do not seem to be able to find the solution. I use Finale 2009 and would be gratefull is anybody is capable of explaining to me how I have to proceed. In general I want to have a lay-out which is equal to published music books: when a mouvement/work ends on a page, I want the second mouvement/work started on the same page, rather than having the remainder of the page left blank.
Thanks in advance for your help

@ wayne-scales: thank you for the suggestion. I am going to try that tonight (have to run for school now).
@ Austenite: they way I do it is to put a double bar at the end of my variation and just continue writing. Above the new variation I write "variation 1", "variation 2" and so on.It is how I found it done in most variations by the great masters.

2. Just go to 'page tool' and move the systems accordingly... There's nothing to it.
3. Add the title, work, etc, on the proper place.
4. Make sure you change the measure numbers, cause you might end up on variation 2 with measure number of 69 and that would be ugly. You need to go to the measure tool and go to the menu and click on 'change measure number regions' (I think. I don't have Finale on this computer so I cannot check). Then choose the first one and make it stop at the last number of the 1st movement (otherwise when you add a new region you'll have two numbers on each measure). Then add a new region for the new part/movement.

Thanks for the suggestions already made; We are nearly there, just need to have you brilliant minds put somewhat further on this matter.

then doubleclick the little square on the right of the measure. (ie the last bar of the last line of the prev movement). there you can tell finale to hide key and measure signatures.
