Hello David and Steve, Steve’s understanding is correct. The Dolet 7.2 for Finale plug-in is there so you can get batch import, batch export, and MusicXML 3.1 support in earlier 32-bit versions of Finale. All these features are built into 64-bit Finale as of v25. Dolet is a 32-bit plug-in, so

I've considered doing just that, but unfortunately, the Bill Duncan fonts are part of an expensive package. All I would really want is the chord library. That doesn't seem to be an option on the NPC site. Giz -Original Message- From: Finale [mailto:finale-boun...@shsu.edu] On Behalf Of

Fin25 / Fin26, you say potatoes, I say potahtoes. Not much difference that I can see. I just tried a quick experiment to see how wonderful the new automatic placement feature for slurs and other articulations works, and I have to say that it does what it claims to, although hardly the big

I think you’d want the articulation font as well. There are jazz articulations that look appropriate with Maestro. Using Jazz font articulations with Maestro looks awful and that discrepancy was why Bill made the articulations (for Greg Hamilton and me). There’s

Also, where is the promised alternative to JazzFont, which has some truly ugly characters? Girard, why don't you use the free Elbsound Music Font Package for Finale? 25 music fonts including four alternative jazz fonts - all 100% compatible with Maestro. LijazFIN looks very similar to
