Bring back "Count Items" feature!

Post by Cookminnboy1953 » Tue Sep 19, 2017 3:37 am

I was disappointed to find the the "Count Items" feature has been eliminated from Finale 25 for Windows. As a show choir composer, I have been able to charge customers by the number of notes, chords symbols, rests, articulations in the score.

Welcome to the forum!


Indeed the “Count Items” feature was nice to have.

However, all is not lost.
Take a look at these two options with file statistics:

1) Score Manager > File Info > File Statistics…

2) Document menu > Data Check > File Maintenance…

If you still have version 2014.5, you can open a Finale 25 file there and count the items.
