Important info concerning Finale and Mac El Capitan

El Capitan and Finale 2014

According to Apple's website, OS X El Capitan, the latest Mac operating system, will be released this Wednesday, September 30, 2015. In our testing with the latest beta versions of El Capitan, we’ve discovered some new incompatibilities with Finale 2014d. Specifically, opening certain dialog boxes (involving expressions, articulations, and others) can cause Finale to crash.

We are working closely with Apple and hope to resolve the issue quickly. While Apple could possibly address this before launch, at this point we advise against upgrading to El Capitan immediately upon its release. If the solution is on our end, we will address it with Finale 2014.5, which we plan to release by the end of November 2015.

We will continue our testing with the release version of El Capitan and will notify you as any further developments occur.

Because this OS change could impact every Finale 2014 user, we are contacting all Finale 2014 users, including those who have opted out of email in the past. Please take this opportunity to update your email preferences.
