Use MusicXML !!! I haven't experienced losing items, but I had all sorts of HP problems with an old template I had to use on a project. I exported to MusicXML and re-imported into Finale 2014. (Actually I think I did both export and import on 2014) That solved the problems. Obviously there

I have a small but time consuming problem with items disappearing. Tech support have told me it is because I’m using a template made in a Finale version before 2014 and that I should create new Templates in 2014. Almost every setting is tweaked as well as a lot of carefully placed items, so this

Don't document options save to libraries? I get my line parameters and defined expressions, when I load my customized library to scratch documents. One aspect not loaded to library is line thickness of smart shape lines. Klaus Sendt fra min iPad Den 18/02/2015 kl. 22.44 skrev Steve Parker

Personally I am skeptical that the upgraded templates are the source of your problem. It's possible, I suppose, but I would want more than the word of a tech support person to believe it. When you say things are disappearing, what does that mean? On Wed, Feb 18, 2015 at 4:08 PM, Steve Parker

Two things. Firstly, the name of the score in score manager doesn't survive closing the file. Secondly, text boxes with inserts disappear when the file is closed and re-opened. I couldn't get further with tech support. These things didn't happen with new files created from the wizard and

I would recommend opening the templates in their original version and running data check on them. Then open them in Fin14 and run data check on them again. Save the result as a Fin14 template and see if you continue to have the problem. On Wed, Feb 18, 2015 at 4:41 PM, Steve Parker
