|EPS export (and import for that matter) is less than optimal, to say the least, and may actually be a waste of time.|
However, can you let us know what you mean by "uneven in quality" when viewed in Illustrator? Different line thicknesses?
And what percentage of Black are the staff lines displaying?
The Compile Postscript item in the File menu produces the best results, though the dialog box only gives a few page sizes in the drop-down list, which is not affected by the active PPD. Tsk. Also, make sure the dimension numbers in the text fields of the dialog are correct. Mine, by default, give numbers in the tens of thousands!
You can then PDF the PS/EPS and import that into your pagination program.
Alternatively, can you print to a PDF print queue? That might also work better. Most DTP can import PDFs just as well - if not better - than EPSes.

|Ok thanks for those answers. I tried the pdf print and import into InDesign and this seems to work a bit better than EPS page export anyway. However one problem we are noticing with the print out - although it is OK in the pdf is that the middle bar of the 3 on tremelando markings is getting whited out|
- I guess this is a printer problem really.
Is the pdf print + import into a package such as InDesign noticeably better in Finale 2008a
If anybody knows I'd be real grateful to know
