Ok, added some icons to many buttons on the first menu of GHIFF making it v0.18. I think this helps. If only I were smart enough to allow people to move them around easily in the GUI... >.<

Wow that was a fast update from v0.17 to v0.18.......about twenty five minutes. I just wish Finale and Sibelius was so quick in updates or bug fixes.

I can't find the Print to PDF in the Interface?

This version 17 is very stable except for Menu 3 Finishing Touches which keeps crashing Finale (2014d).

I tried 18, but did not like the look of the icons. Good Idea, but maybe correctly sized icons for the interface is needed.

Yeah those buttons are kind of obnoxious currently. It may be a week or two before I get to that.

Currently the print feature has macros that go through 11x17 and 8.5 x 11 on menu 3 and 4 like in your picture. There should be simply one print button that determines the size of the page and then prints to pdf. It will activate page layout -> resize page to copy the values in those boxes and use it to print to pdf (that's the quickest way I know how to get that info, maybe it is easier?). That'll make it so there's only one button and flexibility. I will whip that up soon.

As far as the crashing goes, I'm not quite sure what to say. Does it do any part of the macro? I have windows 7 2012c and it works fine.

All it does is check ties, accidentals, durations. Once you close durations, it goes on to JW Cautionary Accidentals (it looks for a folder called JWTools or if you have JW Cautionary accidentals right under Plug-ins, it will work. It should've notified you that if it got that far. Then it simply inserts score system dividers.

Why the switch from ZIP to RAR.  Fortunately WinZip (and the truly freeware 7-Zip) can now handle RAR without having to install yet another archive utility (WinRAR).

The print thing is going to be harder than I thought because primopdf or cutepdf or any real printer handles custom sizes differently. When you go to print -> setup on primopdf, for example, the items in the drop down paper size are different than cutepdf. Also, neither has defaults setup for 9.5x12.5 or 12x18 or something. I'm not sure how to handle that or even get those set up in primo or cutepdf. I'll have to look into it a bit more. Any advice is welcomed.

Any reason not to supply the compiled script this time, or just another "accident"?

Yeah, the logic would be easy to write I think. But then it is 22MB to have GHIFF...! Unless more logic could keep things separate. I'm not exactly sure how it would happen. I'll think about it.

Do not include the dependencies in the download ZIP.  Supply web page links so the interested user can download and install them separately.  Just make sure your AHK script points to the default install location for the dependencies.  That's what I would do / have done.

Sounds a little intricate but I think I may be able to do something to that effect when I have time.

2015-04-13 - Nothing has really changed in the script as of late but I did move the entire project over to GitHub. Join/fork/etc. it there if you are interested in using / developing it further!

I'm looking into other options for designing a better GUI. AHK isn't the best / easiest at designing good GUI's but it does macros well for Windows. I'll see what I can come up with in the future.

No. Applications just run better on a mac. Additionally, a few major publishing houses / copyist firms only use mac and because there are a few small things which don't work well when passing around files from PC to mac, it forces composers / arrangers / orchestrators to just hop the ship to mac.

Not Finale. One only has to read these forums. The Mac version has many problems the Windows version does not, including performance. I wonder if the Mac version can even handle a large piece like an opera. Reports from the front are not encouraging. Don't get me wrong--I like the Mac. But there seems to be an amateurish facet to its OS upgrades, etc., and I wonder if a serious Finale user like a publisher puts up with that.

As to number of users, the topic and posting ratios between the Windows and Mac forums here are about 2 to 1 in favor of Windows. While that doesn't say anything about "serious" users, in absence of any other evidence, I'd say you are simply guessing. It's true that the Mac is more popular among the non-technical, which I guess describes the majority of musicians. But better not to make these sweeping statements absent of facts.

Should I be sorry I never kept a notebook with a running tally of mac/windows Finale users so that I could confidently estimate this?

I'm making intuitive estimations based on what I've seen. I'll be the first to admit I'm just a Windows-loving obsessed Finale hobbyist but I remain confident about intuitive estimations in both the academic and professional world of Finale use.

Whether you should be sorry is not for me to say. But making generalizations from anecdotal evidence is dangerous.
