Hi All,
 
Finale 2012c is now available for download in our Downloads Library for both Windows and Mac. Please follow the link below.
 
 
Finale 2012c includes bug fixes for warnings when deleting Expressions, issues with the Setup Wizard on non-English language user accounts (WIN), and problems copying and pasting smart-lines.
 
Thanks!

I didn't see any mention in the Read Me, but upon brief testing, the sticking note bug with multicore processors seems to be gone. If I check Set Affinity all processors are being used by Finale but in the 5 minutes I tested it I didn't have any sticking notes. If so, that's a good fix!

No such luck here. I'm still getting stuck and dropped notes when doing MIDI entry using Speedy unless I set affinity to one processor.

Does this happen with all VSTs including ARIA?

I've tried with Aria, Kontakt and VI Pro. The VSTi show activity on their meters, but no audio to be heard.

I might suggest getting in contact with support at this point if the standard reboot, trash preferences, etc doesn't help.

I just spent a couple of hours on it and didn't have any sticking notes. Maybe it was just luck, but I'm optimistic. I'll see when I get back to work later tonight.

My favorite part is going from within Finale 2012b to the "check for updates" menu item and being told I have the most current version :)

Be careful with updating the Aria player. One link I found was for the Aria Player, newest version 1.504. The other, 6.something, is for the Aria engine. I'm not updating the engine alone until MM sorts out which Aria update is which.

I don't see a reference to 2012c in the online manual. It still seems to think 2012b is the most recent update. Or, maybe it is because no interface changes were made? Only fixes? Not a big deal, but I was hoping the documentation would also be updated, and some of the erroneous information corrected. I guess I'm asking for too much.

I should be gratefuel the Smart Shape bugs were fixed. And also, the delete expression warning bug is fixed.

Yes there is a reason. I need the parts as a file.
My members of the band use them with Finale NotePad for reading, hearing and study before we do the rehearsal.
That saves me, and the members a lot of time.
They love it, and I love it!!!!!

Its is still possible, but it was allot easier.

In cases like this, I usually just send PDFs and MP3s. If they're listening to their parts with NotePad, they're using MIDI so making MP3s is quick and simple. I don't like giving my Finale files to anyone who'd be able to mess with them.

This is true. The naming bug that cropped up in 2012 is still there in 2012c. On a very positive note, I've been using 2012c since it was released on all processors and haven't had any sticking notes! Previously I couldn't input more than a couple of measures without something sticking unless I used Set Affinity. Hopefully I'm not jinxing myself by posting this.

Another 2012c bug that I just discovered is that ALT dragging an expression (to maintain an attachment point) works if you use a mouse, but doesn't if you use the arrow keys to fine tune the positioning. I have no idea if this works in the release version, but it works fine in 2011. I also just realized you can't ALT-SHIFT (to maintain one dimension) drag with a mouse attachments on multiple staves. You can't in 2011 either but often I would to bump several expressions over the same amount to keep the positioning exact. I used to always just ALT drag a few clicks with the arrow keys but now this doesn't work.

One place this is a big problem is with strings. Often they will need a div. or unis. indication before the first beat of an entrance. If I bump it over to avoid a collision I run the risk of it reassigning to the preceding empty measure and being "lost" in a multimeasure rest so I always ALT drag in this situation. ALT dragging with the arrow keys allowed me to make sure the expressions were all aligned in the score but now this isn't possible in 2012c. Does it work in the release version of 2012?



Edited to add the string example. Michel responded while I was posting it.

"There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs." ~John Rogers
