I'm trying to script the changing of noteheads.

In Utilities/Change/Change Noteheads, a dialog comes up, and entering the keystrokes "œ" (option-Q) and "˙" (option-h) get the desired results for quarter- and half- noteheads, respectively.

The script below looks like it's working, but then doesn't do anything.

menu item "utilities/change/noteheads"
check "Selected Notehead"
tab
type "œ"
tab
press "OK"

Neither does this:

menu item "utilities/change/noteheads"
find "All Noteheads"
change "Selected Notehead"
tab
type "œ"
tab
press "OK"

I'm missing something in the syntax. How does Finale script address multiple radio buttons and a text entry field? What is the syntax?

I'm not at my computer with Finale, but are you using the exact names of the menu items in your script?

Yes - the issue is not the menu item names, but how to address the options in the dialog
