Hi

Is there a utility that can take a folder of .mus files and convert them all to PDF files? (Or better still, many .mus files to a single PDF file).

I use Finale 2004 for Mac.

many thanks,
Dafydd

You don't say which version of Mac OS you are using. As you are using Finale2004, you might even be running OS 9.

In OS X, this would be very easy, using Automator to construct an Applescript that would open each file and Save As PDF from the print menu. You could even set up Folder Actions, so that any Finale document placed in a particular folder will cause the script to run.
Once the files are PDFs, you could use Preview to join the PDFs together (Leopard only). You can script/automate this, too.

Depending on what OS version you are running, and what other software you have (Acrobat?), there are other solutions to your problem.

Hi

thanks for the reply. I ended up installing CUPS-PDF and then setting that as my default printer, then using the finalescript batch print method. Then I used automator to join the PDFs together.

I'm running Finale 2004 on Tiger, I think (10.4)

cheers,
david
