How about to enter with the Simple Entry as I do?
I'm very far from fluent in Simple Entry, but there definitely seems to be a substantial delay adding further notes (I haven't deleted my earlier effort) when I try with Simple.

Hi Octo,

entering on my imac (3,2Ghz, i5) 32GB RAM in Finale 25:

Pageview, simple entry: very slight delay in maximum zoom, but no Beach Ball.
Speedy: slight delay.
Scroll view: no delay

cheers,

wolf

Hi David: my testing was showing that Finale will slow down if you're rendering lots of music on the screen. Given the density of Octo's test file, I would likely work on it around 250% and like you, alternate between scroll and page view depending on my task. Anything above 100% is instant for me. Of course, your mileage may vary depending your system, workflow, and stuff.
Octo: I've looked through this thread a few times and have yet to note where you mention what view percentage and page view settings your using. Just saying it is really hard to have a meaningful discussion if it isn't clear what your steps are or what your objective is. Furthermore, if you're doing same tests in MuseScore, I'd be curious what those steps and timings are.

Cheers,

In order to check the responsiveness of the last version I attempt a test using OCTO's set up and input some non-sense notes.
The test presents a single page with even less bars compared to the original empty template.
The navigation (using "Grab tool" or Mouse scroller or on MAC) is incompatible for graph software issued in 2016.

I tested it on my iMAC late 2013, CPU – I7 3.5 GHz, 24 GB RAM, GPU – Nvidia 775 with 2 GB RAM, SSD SATAIII

The lag on this single page is so sluggish and apparently this version (and both previous 2014 and 2014.5, too) can not be used for such dense projects.
Exported as 2012 the situation is slightly better but I was surprised when I checked the same content opened (via XML) in Sibelius 7.5.

The difference in speed is incompatible running this test on the same iMAC.
Large files Saving in Sibelius is fast as seen on all pre-2014 version.
There are also possibility to export the music content as previous version till 2.0 and their flat format does not need "special attention" when saving.
I know that OS X' antialiasing filter is something that makes recent Mac versions much slower than WIN version.
However Sibelius utilises the same OS and recently works blazingly fast compared to Finale.

Why the MM developer do not find the right code?
Speaking yesterday with friend of mine from Oslo he told me: "All my program run very fast on my new Mac with only one exception ... Finale."

Should it be like that, MM, and if "yes" why then?

Dear Michael Johnson,

I have used View at 600 or 800%.
I use "Single page" view.
The delay is enough in Simple Entry. What I mean "enough" is that test was done by using with a very limited number of information (a few notes).

The definitely delay is present in re-calculation of note spacing, as I can see.
Can you check that? I am happy that other users report back (using OS X) so that I can be assured something is wrong with my system.

MuseScore - the delay is not present at any level, similar as I would work in a four instrument score.

P.S. I have tested Wess' file, and have got short rainbows always as well flickering note-heads (they become "fat" somehow for a short time - a kind of graphical thing). Therefore the lag is even more obvious in that files.
UPDATE: Sorry, the file was opened in v.2014.5 In v25 no flickering but the lag persists (I enter note, wait for 2-3 sec). Seems that note-spacing algorithm is the issue.

I've been using Finale 25 for a week or so now with a file of 680 bars, 75 staff systems and over 71000 frames.
I'm finding things are much improved seed-wise compared to 2014.5.
Page view is still significantly slower than scroll view, but much better than previously. Single page is more responsive than Current spread or Looseleaf: Row.
Dragging staves with the Staff Tool is also much improved and it was this in 2014.5 that was starting to drive me nuts more than anything else, as were significant delays in selecting items in Page View.
My iMac is getting on (2011 model 27" with 8G of RAM) and over due for an upgrade so I'm looking forward to better performance still on a new machine with 16G.

Hi Octo:
Automatic Music Spacing and Automation Update Layout have always slowed Finale down. It is on the radar to address such issues, but not in the short term.

The file Octo posted doesn't present a problem on Windows with my 10-year-old desktop, so I suspect it's more than just a Finale architecture issue.

Thank you, Motet for this information.
Many users, including me too, already suspect that the slow performance seen by last versions of Finale is only Mac issue.

I am sorry to hear.

I think other products are on the radar for me. Having been with Finale for past 17 years, I am now more than sure it is my last year.

I would like to STRESS a need to improve Finale on OS X platform.

If Finale 2014 and v25 is slower than Finale 2011, on the stronger machine, than what is the reason for updates?
There is an URGENT need to improve Finale's speed on OS X, and I hope this will be released very soon in the next update of V25.

I speak here as one who uses Finale for extremely complex and dense projects.

You need to help us.

Michael,

Glad to hear Mac speed is a top priority. I would like to make sure we're all talking about the same thing. I find on my system, Finale 2014 and up run much quicker when it's just my laptop screen, compared to my usual work setup plugged into a 28" monitor, running at the equivalent of 2560x1440. Finale 2011 and 2012 have no problem at that resolution. I'm running 2014 and up in low resolution mode, so there is no difference there.

Is there any possibility of Finale using hardware graphic acceleration to smooth out graphics performance in the future? Finale is the only pro audio application where I have sluggishness of scrolling and basic operation in and out of windows.

Hi Jeremy:
Thanks for your support and question. Finale absolutely needs to be able to utilize graphic acceleration in the future. Yes, Finale is behind the competition in this regard - depressing to say and admit. Finale had optimized what it could for many years. But, the OS had changed rendering routines and then graphic cards got in on the action. Finale has to change to be viable. It will be no small feat, if it had been we would have done it by now. But, it is the next big thing on the list.

Cheers,

Hi Michael,

This is good to hear. But just to make sure I understand you correct: Will you make sure that Finale will be fast enough even for those of us with larger Retina monitors?

At the moment I have to use my brand new iMac 27 in Finale's low res mode. Would be great to be able to use the 4k resolution from the Retina screen (which is fantastic with Finale btw. It's just too slow to work with.)

Cheers and thanks for taking part in these discussions. It is very much appreciated.

Hi A.S.
Of course your mileage may vary and "fast enough" is rather vague, but yes, large Retina is modern and we must to be modern.
For me, Finale is a tool and the tool should never, or perhaps rarely, get in the way of creativity and productivity. Just like music, the instrument should be an extension of the musician. We're not there yet and I sincerely appreciate your patience.
Glad I can offer a little help and insight.
Cheers,

A.S.

My monitor is also 4K, so I feel your pain. It's excruciatingly slow running in Hi-Res mode. It's a drag seeing Digital Performer and Cubase perform so well in Retina mode, and then having to go back to blurry text in Finale because the screen rendering can't keep up. FYI, Sibelius is almost as bad in Retina mode.

The good news is that it's not very noticeable in low-res mode if you run your 4K monitor in high resolution scaled mode. Everything is small enough that it still looks fine.

I'm now being hit by Finale's grinding almost to a halt in page view (F 2014.5 with OS 10.11.6) in my present project. I alternate between page and scroll view. When I return to page view, I need to reposition the score on my portrait oriented monitor before doing anything else. After about half an hour of work, this becomes almost uncontrollable. Yesterday I had the surreal experience of trying to reposition the score and then watching it refuse to stop moving. With a series of small jerks it kept going until it had exited stage left in its entirety (this process took at least a minute).

A relaunch of Finale both settles and speeds things for a while; but not for long. This is an opera, with all that implies for layout, stage directions &c &c, but as these things go its demands on Finale are quite modest and it is a very long way from being the largest or most complex score I have typeset in Finale. It's for quite modest forces (as these things go) and uses a maximum of about 53 staves (or thereby). I've found it convenient to divide the piece into eleven separate files (so nothing hugely long). Nearly (if not quite) all the notation is 'traditional', there are no very complex or independent time signatures &c.

Anyway, the regular need to relaunch Finale is beginning to get annoying. A seriously dense and complex score like some of those by OCTO would, I think, be impossible to manage as things are at present without a radically different set-up.

Hi David:
We addressed some speed issues around time signature changes in the latest version. Have you tried the demo of v25 to see if that helps? I'm just curious.

No. I'm leaving that until after I've finished the first complete Finale draft of my current project (ETA mid-October) and also until there is full availability of Jari's plugins for v25 (I'm so dependent on these for my way of working that I can't really test it without them).

Dear Michael,

I don't want to be repetitive, and I guess you would agree.

MM's product Finale is used by many professional editors for their publications. Music created by Finale is used by the top-class performers worldwide.

The latency problem (slowness, non responsiveness, etc) is de facto killing Finale - I don't want to say how important it is for your business - and for our business. But we have alternatives.

I think that not years but months or to say - weeks are working against you. If it is not fixed sooner, I predict really a bad outcome.
