Currently running iMac with OSX 10.4.11 and Finale 2008b. We purchased the Medieval plug-in for Finale when we were running Finale 2006 and it worked fine. However since moving to Finale 2008 we are unable to use it. We have tried reloading with no success. It appears to be installed in the correct folder but when you launch Finale there is no Medieval tool in the plug-in menu. Any suggestions.

There has been an issue in 2008 and 2009 of some plug-ins not having the "bundle bit" set, and so not being seen by the program. Mediaeval is a third-party plug-in, so I don't know if it could be affected in the same way, but it's worth checking.
When you look at the plug-in in the Finder, does it appear as a plug-in, or does it appear to be a navigable folder with contents? If you right-click on the plug-in, is there an option to "Show Package contents"?
If the plug-in has been installed correctly, then the plug-in should NOT appear as a folder, and you SHOULD see "Show Package Contents" in the contextual menu.

The solution, if needed, is to use a Utility such as FileBuddy to set the bundle bit (otherwise known as the package flag). If you have the Apple Developer Tools (Xcode) installed, you can use SetFile from the Terminal to achieve the same result.

If this is not the problem, you could check that the read-write permissions and ownership of the Mediaeval plug-in matches that of the other plug-ins.

Failing that, you may need to ask Robert Piechaud, the creator of Mediaeval.

Thanks for your reply. I also contacted Klemm and they suggested opening Finale in Rosetta and that seems to work.

Ah yes. If the plug-in is not a Universal Binary, then Finale must run is Rosetta. This can impede performance. You may want to see if they have released a Universal version of the plug-in.

An update to Medieval is being finalized, including more than just being Universal Binary (yes, I know, this project has taken more time than planned...)
I expect it to be ready in January 2009.

Thanks for your patience.

Hello, I was wondering if this new version is going to ship soon. I purchased it from a local distributor last fall and I could never get it to work because of the Universal Binary issue. Some features of Finale 2008 would not work (e.g., palettes not showing up) if it is running under Rosetta. This means that I could never get Medieval to function... so it's just sitting idle.

I can't seem to get this demo plug-in to work in Finale '09 on XP. Am I missing something? Does somebody have a .MUS document using this font that I could look at?
