Re: What is plan for Finale upgrades?

Thanks for the info. I have no special requests for now, based on the projects I've established. However it's peculiar that MakeMusic would ignore an obvious resource for learning the thinking & experience of Finale's actual users. A mystery. Perhaps they'll consider at least an occasional look at t...

Re: Backup files location question

I unchecked "Backup Files" but kept "Auto-Save" & tried with a file. You're correct: a .bak file appeared in the folder with the main file. Many thanks.

What is plan for Finale upgrades?

This has probably been asked already: Finale 2012 is the latest version currently available. Are more upgrades in the pipeline?

Re: Classical Guitar Symbols on One pallet

I've managed to produce special classical guitar marks using Finale alone, though the circled numbers (for string numbers) were definitely very tedious. And the circle doesn't show in the text expression palette - only the number, so it's a bit of a guessing game. - Finale/Makemusic folks should be ...

Backup files location question

Finale 2011 for Mac, OS 10.6.8 Just installed this version (an upgrade) this summer. So far so good, after solving some font problems during install. MY QUESTION: Previous versions of Finale defaulted to locating backup files in the same folder as the master file, but F2011 locates them in Documents...

Re: No font list after new install Fin2011 & update

The install process on both computers included automatic registration and authorization, and the "success" message came through. I used the disk for both. The other problems a complete mystery, as the installs had gone well with no glitches. Anyway things seem to be working now. Thanks for the atten...

Re: No font list after new install Fin2011 & update

This reply covers both the issues I reported after the new install. After my posts, it occurred to try Fin2011 on my Mac laptop, as I did the 2 permitted installs: desktop (a Mac Mini) and laptop. 2011 on the laptop worked OK. I went back to the desktop machine, then IT worked OK. Why? No clue, but ...

No font list after new install Fin2011 & update

Just installed Finale 2011 upgrade Mac, and update. 2011.r2. Registered, authorized, etc. Opened a Finale 2010 file in progress. Looked at setting up fonts, both in Doc Prefs & "Set Default Music Font." The side-by-side "Font" and "Typeface" window appears, but both sides are blank. NO fonts of any ...

(Click the uppermost system to select it, and go to Page Layout menu > Insert Page Break) Mr. Thomsen - This was very helpful. (Why couldn't I find it?!!) - Though I've never had to use it before in numerous similar documents. You're right, that workflow probably varies with the type of work. Howeve...

Page Layout workflow suggestions

Comments apply to Finale for Mac, 2010, running on a late 2009 Mac Mini: I've used Finale since the early 1990's, and just about the time I think a page layout workflow is nailed down, something makes me feel like a beginner all over again. Yes, I have tried just about everything in the Finale Help ...
