It seems that the upgrade mainly consists of a few improvements to
collision avoidance. Perhaps there is much more than immediately meets
the eye, but this seems like a rather thin upgrade for $150.
I may upgrade, but I have been doing most of my work in Dorico lately,
which already does 10x more automatic collision avoidance than Finale.
I'd appreciate hearing about any experience from people doing upgrades
or using the demo version.
Second observation -- Fin26 will automatically remove Fin25 and install
Fin26 if we aren't careful to read all the fine print in the
installation dialog boxes! There is a dialogue labeled "Uninstall
Finale 25" which has a checkbox to uninstall Fin25, which comes checked
by default (wrong decision by the developers in my opinion), so if we're
not careful to UNcheck that box, we'll lose our Fin25 installation.
That may be unimportant for some who will simply remove older versions
and use the newest one, but with all the upgrading troubles moving our
data files from previous versions up to the most recent Finale versions,
I'm keeping most of my Finale versions installed.
