I think they are called children. You know, sharing the family puter, with parental controls and supervision = different accounts. But even that is a thing of the past now. Most kids have their own computers and TVs and Xbox and so on. Pretty soon they'll have their own granny flats (bairn

The reason for having two copies is to allow different user accounts to have different default settings. When a user starts using Finale, the files are copied to their user library. I don't know which location is more obvious to those not in the know: it may be a problem of the Mac OS that

Mine shows it exactly as you describe. However, if I don't independently reselect the document style then I don't get A4. I don't have to select the page sizes only reselect the doc style. Steve P. On 9 Jan 2011, at 04:21, Florence + Michael launay-c...@gmx.net wrote: The Setup Wizard

It could be that you also need to edit pagesizes.txt to put A4 at the top: my pagesizes.txt is already so edited. Michael On 9 Jan 2011, at 10:33, Steve Parker wrote: Mine shows it exactly as you describe. However, if I don't independently reselect the document style then I don't get A4.

I've already done this. I removed US Letter completely from this file. I still have to deselect then reselect the document style and only then do I get A4 - without touching the page sizes. Any other ideas - there may be some basic, obvious thing I've never learnt. Steve P. On 9 Jan 2011,

In that case, the pagesizes.txt that Finale is using is not the one you edited. The page sizes menu in the Setup Wizard is constructed from the pagesizes.txt file. On Mac, if you're using Finale 2011, you have to edit the file in the library in your user folder, not in the main library.

I remember that the changes made in the default file applied also to the Setup Wizzard. I have changed the page sizes, in the score and parts, of the Maestro default file, also in the Engraver document style files, from Letter to A4, which we use here. I have also moved the A4-page size

I tried to do this for some weeks.. Even deleting all other options still didn't do it. Related to this is that if I have say a string quartet set to 'always use a selected style' that includes A4, it needs reselecting in the Wizard in order to not be US Letter size. Steve On 8 Jan 2011,

The Setup Wizard should open with the page size defined in the default Document Style. Also, if you have changed the page size in any particular Document Style, you should see this page size automatically selected when you select that style in the list on the first page of the Setup Wizard.
