Sidecar on Mac laptop

Post by Bill Stevens » Thu Jan 16, 2020 12:42 pm

I have fussed some with Sidecar (using an iPad as a second screen) but I've never been able to get it to work, possibly because my iPad is too old.

Has anyone found Sidecar useful with Finale?

I find a 2nd monitor useful for displaying the manuscripts I'm transcribing. Working on my laptop, I have used my iPad to show reference info, both as an independent screen and as a 2nd display using Duet, third-party software that does the same thing as Sidecar (but supports older hardware).

You can have more than one window of the same document open in Finale, showing a part in one and the score in another. That may be useful for some.
