iMac or MBPro?

Postby Ozfrog » Wed Apr 25, 2018 7:35 am

Hello,
some strangeness here.
I have been using Finale 2014.5 on a MBPro Retina for the last couple of weeks on a large project.
The MBPro is running Sierra.
The notes in layer one all appear as hidden upon entering them and the "Create Multi-measure rests" function is inoperative.
Layers 2,3 and 4 are fine.
I am using an additional moniteur to display Finale with the MBPro.

On my aging iMac - Core 2 Duo, running El Capitan 10.11.6 and the same version of Finale - everything is fine.
As I said - STRANGE

If you want to email me as well;

Thanks
Ozfrog

Does this happen in all documents - or is it document specific?

No, thanks, it happens with ALL the documents I've worked on.

The MBPro is running Sierra.

I believe that 2014.5 is not recommended to run on Sierra (or rather that Sierra is not recommended for using 2014.5). There may well be a variety of odd little quirks.

I'd suggest updating to 25.5. There are many improvements and bug fixes, and more free updates have been promised.

I see - probably why it's happy on the iMac under El Capitan and quirky on the MBPro under Sierra.
I will remove this post (and my email shortly - thanks for the advice).
