I started with a scanned PDF file.

open the PDF with Preview.

Export the PDF file as a .tiff.

Use SmartScore (preferably SmartScore Pro) to recognize list then chose the .tiff file you created.

Go ahead and create the .enf file.

Then export the .XML file to open Finale.

The file I used had a few errors to correct.

Hope this helps someone out there.

The Pro version works much better than the Lite, that comes with Finale. You can make a lot of your corrections there, before you create the XML.

One day someone will invent a machine where you can put in a cake and it will produce eggs, flour water and dried fruit!!!

It reminds me that many years ago someone asked the question how to turn a pdf file into a Finale file. This was before Smart Score. I used the cake as an analogy.

Has anyone tried Smart Score on the Fernyhough example posted on another thread?

I have Smart Score Pro and PhotoScore, and I think PhotoScore Ultimate is excellent for pdf. files.
