Chord list, generate parts...???

Post by ameliehewett » Thu Sep 21, 2017 4:38 pm

I recently bought Finale Printmusic 2014.5.

I was used to working with Finale 2014. Why can't I change/add new chords to the chord list? Why has the ''Generate Parts'' option disappeared? I don't want to extract parts for a whole orchestra and have 10-15 different documents...can anyone help? Am I missing something here?

That is the different between the “full Finale” and its smaller (& cheaper) sibling PrintMusic.

Be aware that PrintMusic is being discontinued. You have until the end of September to get a special price of $99 to upgrade to the full Finale.
