Raputtak's WIBNI list

WIBNI Wouldn't It Be Nice If:

Topics were grouped intuitively.

For example: Measure numbers
I want to show measure numbers. I click the measure tools thingy. Oh, all the options are greyed out. I have to go to Staff Attributes and set Measure numbers under Items To Display. Then there is Edit Measure Number Regions. Does the same thing. Show and Hide measure numbers are still greyed out. Fit measures in score and in parts.

Confusing it is.

Then there is the wonderful world of printing.
Let's face it, the primary purpose of this software is to produce output that people can set on their music stands and play from.
Please put links to all the various places under a single Print heading in the menu bar.
Set page size
System spacing,
Measure numbers
Parts and part formatting (i.e. print a title page or not, Fit Measures)

Don't get me wrong, I think Finale is a marvelous piece of software. I am more computer geek than I am musician and I still find it hard to navigate.
