Finale 26 Icon Fix

Post by Nick Mazuk » Sat Oct 13, 2018 4:33 am

Anyone else think that the new icon is a huge eyesore? Or already downloaded the demo and now the old icon is gone?

Here's a fix!

I attached a modified version of the new icon to so it looks 5x better (more or less. The number is arbitrary).

Additionally, here's how to fix the icon on a Mac once and for all in just 5 minutes:

1. Open up the attached image with Preview
2. cmd+a to select everything and cmd+c to copy everything
3. Find Finale in the applications folder and cmd+i (or right-click “Get info”) to get more detail
4. Click to select the icon in the upper left corner
5. cmd+v to paste the icon. It should not be fixed almost everywhere
6. You may need to remove and then re-add Finale to the doc to change it there

I don't have Windows, but here's some potentially useful links to change app icons for you: ... and-vista/ ... windows-10

If you have any questions, just reply.

I agree that the new hideous icon is the worst part of an otherwise great upgrade. I've ended up taking Finale out of my Mac dock just because I couldn't stand to look at it. MakeMusic: why?
