The only way to close down the score manager window is to click on the upper right hand corner x (or Alt-F4, or right-click menu -close). Just about any other pop-up window (menu items, plug-ins) can be exited via the Escape key. I've tried all kinds of ways in TGTools Options to program the Esc key to exit the score manager, but to no avail.
Could somebody come up with a simple script that would accomplish this - exit score manager by hitting Escape?

This worked for me in Finale 2012.

Create a script with the following comment and line of code in it.


//Acts as a toggle to open or close the Score Manager
press ctrl "k"


The line of code acts as a toggle switch showing and closing the score manager.

In Finale 2014 the keyboard shortcut directly shows or closes the score manager. In Finale 2012, this keyboard shortcut used directly only opens the score manager. However, when I ran the keyboard shortcut as a Finale script, I found (to my surprise) that it both opened and closed the Score Manager.

An alternate that I could not get to work programmatically would be to click on Score Manager (so it has the focus), then press alt+spacebar. This is a Windows shortcut that brings up options for the open window. The last option is Close. Even using a keyboard shortcut to run the script, I could not get it to work with the Score Manager window, but could with the main Finale 2012 window.

I hope the code works for you.

Since you can open/close the ScoreManager via the Window menu, you could also try

menu item "ScoreManager"

I had tried that before (assigned to a shortcut key) - it opens it, but when re-applied doesn't close it for some reason

It does, assigned it to a convenient combination (Alt-X), which then both opens and closes it.

Thanks to all!
