November 2 Document Style Disappeared?

Post by PJRasmussenJazz » Tue Jan 12, 2021 10:02 pm

Hello,

I'm switching to Finale from Sibelius for a couple of reasons, but one big reason is Finale's compatibility with third-party fonts. I recently purchased November 2, and my old version of Finale (2014), had a document type all set up for that font.

I just downloaded the demo trial of Finale 26, and that document type has disappeared. Is this because it's only a demo? I hope so, as I'd hate to upgrade and have to buy the font over again.

Thanks, and sorry for the very newbie question!

When you bought the font, didn’t you download it to your computer and install it? You certainly wouldn’t have to buy ir again.

I’ve never seen a November default Finale doc. I wonder if you didn’t get it when you bought the font?

Hi Miker,

Yes, I downloaded and installed it. I was surprised when I opened Finale 2014 and right in the startup screen by engraving and handwritten it had November listed as a default. It said it was a template for the November font style.

Downloading the demo, I was surprised to see it disappear, hence my confusion. The font is still there from what I can tell.

In that case, open a new default document. In Document menu > Set default music font... you can set up a new doc with November, and save that as a template.

Instructions are in the manual.
