OS Catalina

I’m moving towards buying a new iMac with OS Catalina. Has anyone had any problems with Finale working well with This Operating System?

free finale reader

Is there a free basic reader for finale documents? I have a piano student who just needs to read and listen to a finale document.
Thanks, Ed

Re: Finale for iOS?

When you move xml files back and forth do they maintain all of the settings and open looking and functioning the same in both programs?

Re: Finale for iOS?

Thanks for the information.

Do you guys know if it is possible to move files from Finale back an forth from Notion to Finale?

That would seem to be an essential function.

Thanks

Finale for iOS?

Are we any closer to getting Finale on an iPad? Am I dreaming or is this a possibility?

For that matter, does anyone know if Sibelius or any other programs will work at a sophisticated level?

I use a Mac.

Re: attachments keep getting rejected

I’m trying to add a photo that I took with my iphone of a chord chart to see if I can get some ideas on how to create something similar in Finale.

attachments keep getting rejected

Whenever I try to add an attachment it gets rejected for being too large a file. Just a simple file. Help!

Newzik vs. Forscore

I’ve been using ForScore for my Finale files on my iPad Pro and it is an amazing organizer/reader. Someone mentioned a newer app called Newzik...does anyone have experience with Newzik and have an opinion on how it compares to ForScore?

Thanks, Ed

Thank you Finale

I just need say that I am EXTREMELY grateful to have a program like Finale. I can't believe how fortunate we are to not have to write music out with a pencil let alone a quill pen. I use Finale every day and just think what would Mozart have been able to do with what we all take for granted? THANK Y...

Re: How to make a F6/9 symbol in chords?

Thanks for all the input. It seems like the easiest and least frustrating thing to do is to just bypass doing this in chords and to just type in the particular symbol and drag it into position.

Re: How to make a F6/9 symbol in chords?

Doesn't work. When I copied and pasted the F6/9 from the file posted and pasted it onto my document it automatically transformed it to F6/C.

Why does this happen?

How to make a F6/9 symbol in chords?

Help! For the life of me I can't figure out how to make a chord has a 6/9. For example, C6/9 or D6/9.
Finale keeps changing the chord to something like C6/G. How do I make a simple C6/9?

Re: 3 staves? one Treble clef and Two Bass clefs...help!

that doesn't work. I tried doing exactly what you said and it won't work. You say the staves must be totally empty...the only thing in the measures are whole rests.

Re: 3 staves? one Treble clef and Two Bass clefs...help!

I now need to figure out how to go from 3 staves to only 2 staves (in the middle of the piece) and then back to 3 staves.

Thanks for all you help guys

3 staves? one Treble clef and Two Bass clefs...help!

I always write for piano using the standard Grand staff. I cannot figure out how to make a system with 3 clefs. One G clef and two F clefs. I'm sure it is a simple process but not for me.

Re: Get rid of "Score" in PDF

This is and issue that I find very annoying as well. And it is only happened since I've had finale 25. It's easy enough to erase the word score, but it is an annoying issue.

Re: Who's here?

I love Finale...it has changed my life!!!! I used to write out everything by hand and for well over 10 years now Finale has made writing music a pleasure. Except when it malfunction. So hopefully we will keep this forum alive for a long time.
