Chord Styles Plugin for Finale
Youtube screencam demonstration: Converting the Chord Style in Finale
Then everything was undone. The video starts at that moment and every call
of the plugin is redone manually (to save processing time in the video).
Examples:All chord symbols in the following images were created with the Chord plugin by converting the Finale default document to the new style. The default document uses the fonts Times New Roman and Maestro for all chord symbols. Here you can find the links to all music fonts mentioned below. The text fonts can be found for example on MyFonts.com.
The "MZ" fonts below are based on free Google fonts and include all letters as well as the required chord symbols (accidentals, triangle, plus, minus, diminished, half-diminished). They are available for free from the publisher of the "Mozart" notation software.
My Personal Favorites:

|Old Standard TT Bold / Arnold|
|CG Times / Bravura|
