Moving templates folder for new versions of Finale?

Postby Andrew Harrison » Fri Jul 13, 2018 7:54 pm

Hello everyone,

I've got a quick question regarding Finale templates. How do other users access their templates when they move to a new version? Do you copy it, move it or just going looking for it? I've got a templates folder that I created way back (F12) that has some files that I use regularly, and I have to keep going fishing for it when I start up F25.

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts.

Regards,
Andrew

Copy the folder, give it an identifiable name (My Templates), and move it into the Finale 25 template folder. When you start a new file using one of your templates, select File > New > Document from Template and you'll see your folder in the list.

Although beware of doing that for too many updates. Last year I redid most of my templates because my old ones were showing anomalies.
