I'd like to see the Shortcut Editor window intercept any keystrokes sent before displaying to what they are currently assigned. I don't know if this is possible, but it is annoying testing possible key combinations and having them execute on the system or in Finale. Would it not be possible to simply have the window report the current assignment (if any) without having them trigger the assigned behavior?

Well, I'll port my request for help over to this thread... Please give me the ability to pass the name of the file into dialog boxes like those we get when we export audio or graphics. For me, in fact, if it's easier, the file's title field would be fine. I always use it because I have a lot of small files and print them. But clearly Finale knows both because both are available as inserts with the Text tool (altho the file name insert uses the full path which is less good).

As long as I'm writing, I'll add my vote for a "record keystrokes" macro.

I'm having a hard time batch printing files to PDF on my Mac. I'm running OSX 10.5 and currently there are only 1-2 virtual printers available and I can't get them to install correctly. Is there are script that I'm missing that will let you use the in-Finale "Save As PDF" command, and if there isn't, then one would certainly be useful.

Thanks

Finalescript is very cool, but I would like to see better documentation.

Try using Quickeys instead, I think you'll have better luck.

This is related to my post in July. What I really need is more batch processing: exporting graphics and creating audio files. If there's a way, I haven't figured it out.

I'll also second Motet's request for better documentation. What is available really assumes you have time to hack around for fun. Wish I did have time, but I don't.

It's really "documentation by rumor." There are examples of the commands available, but nothing describing the syntax or options, nor any organized list. It's such a wonderful thing that it deserves better documentation.

In addition to documentation, tutorials would be useful.

It would be nice if it were available to linked parts.

Hi,

Perhaps you can take a look at the Visual Basic Editor in Office programs.

  • You can step through the code line by line and see what it does
  • You can set a breakpoint to stop the code
  • There is intellissense (completing words you write)
  • When writing code obvious errors are put in red

kind regards,

Erik

Five years after the last post I in this thread, I would like to point everyone still interested in better scripting functions to JWLua. A lot of the discussed functions could be done more easily in JWLua than in Finalescript. Have a look and consider learning it, it opens amazing possibilities within Finale.

A help in learning Finalescript.

Make available a downloadable PDF of the Finale User Manual Finalescript pages that has been lightly edited so that it prints with intelligent pages breaks on 8.5 by 11 paper.

Background

When I first started working with Finalescript in 2008, I copied the help files to Word, adjusted the page breaks, and then printed it as a booklet. The ability to reference the print copy was a definite benefit in learning Finalescript.

Since then Microsoft lost permission to use XML and stripped it out of Word. Now, when the Finalescript pages are copied into word, some colors and other formatting elements are changed. So it is no longer possible to just copy and then adjust where the page breaks should come. Making a straight PDF of the webpage keeps the formatting, but the page breaks come where they may.
