Just a quick thank you to Dr Wiggy. Adding a postscript printer fixed the problem for me.

Hi Nikk:
I'm sorry this is so frustrating. Yes, printing has changed in v25 from previous versions. We had to make some changes to keep up with Apple. I think we're talking past each other here. Could you Private Message me your template so I can see what your page format for Parts are set at and how you configured orientation for the parts? I'm sure we can get to the bottom of the problem, you won't need to recreate your templates, and you can get the output you want in v25.

Cheers,

Well, wait a minute...if I am using the marching band template to create ottavo-like parts, this does not work. Here was what I did prior to Finale 25:

1. Use the Marching Band template and customized it to within an inch of its life...I do NOT want to have to do this again.
2. When printing, I would select "Layout" and print two pages per sheet.
3. The result was exactly the right size for cutting and inserting into the standard flip folio window, I just printed an example using the exact method outlined here in 2014.5, and it is attached.

Now...if I do exactly what you are saying (and please, "check my math" here to see if I am just dumb and not comprehending):

1. I continue to use my marching band template.
2. When printing, instead of Layout in the Drop-Down options, I select the "Layout: 2-up" that is right there on the opening splash screen.
3. I tell it to ignore printer margins.

The problem is...I do NOT get the same result. I get the result that I've attached here as "MMT using 25" which is too large for flip folders.

Ok, so...I go back. This time, using Finale 25, I:

1. Use the "Layout" found in the Drop-Down options.
2. Select two pages per sheet. Print.

This now creates a completely different printout, one with much too much white space at the top. This too is unusable.

So...now I go back and try something else:

1. Use the "Layout" found in the Drop-Down options.
2. Select two pages per sheet.
3. GO BACK to the main menu and select 2-up on both of these options...of course, this is also not the desired product.


Why is it that, in Finale 25, I ABSOLUTELY CANNOT replicate the end result I can get in 2014, 2012, 2011, etc.?

This is beyond frustrating. Am I going to have to start all over from scratch on a new template because some internal setting was changed???

Setting the print settings to Portrait does not result in any difference either - I get the same exact printout as in my second scenario above.

Yes, Dr. Wiggy and Jim are right to make sure under File/Page Setup that the orientation is set to portrait.
I've attached my file file, PDF part, and screen shot of my printer settings to get a small margin at the top.
Good luck with your show; hope you have a great season.

Cheers

Isn't that choice now available in the Print Dialog?
I don't know how to make that Screen Shot thing, or I'd post that.
Anyway, it works for me and probably I'm misunderstanding what you are saying!

OK, but what does
"the control to alter it has been removed in 25"
mean?

I don't see anything in 25 print dialog that wasn't in 2014.5 and previous. But the option in Preferences has just been removed.

I don't understand.
It used to in Printing Preferences.
Now it's a check box in the Print Menu.
Check or un-check, isn't that altering it?

Did you check to use Finale's orientation instead of the printer's?
That's essential!

It's so essential that the control to alter it has been removed in 25. :p

Yup - always have that checked off. Though, I've seen enough weirdness in this program that I'm going to go back and triple check.

11x17 may be different. 2-up on 8.5x11 (for marching band flip folio purposes) is not working so hot, leaving the aforementioned big spaces up top. Though it is nice to know that when I go to print out my concert ensemble works, that at least will work.

I printed to 2-up 11/17 without problem in Fin 25.

Ok, just tried it with your settings - still leaves a tremendous amount of white space up top (see attached).

Finale 2014 prints it out the way I want it without having to mess around with any settings. Yet another reason to go back to it (no offense to you, Michael, I know you probably have your hands tied in many ways about things you want to have this software be vs. what the powers-that-be want) and get a refund on 25 until things are a little more solid.

Heh - Didn't catch your response until just now, Michael. The VK-inspired "MMT" is a hit with our students. No red converse or tuxedos, however.

I'll try the settings you've mentioned for printing.

Yeah, I'm working on Sundays -- no rest for the wicked.
You're problem is trying to reproduce the VK show. ;-) I hope you're marching in red chucks with white tuxedo coats. I think that show requires it. haha

I'm using the Finale Document Style of Marching Band to start my file.
I think I get the results you want in v25 with print dialog settings of "Borderless 8.5 x 11" and 2 up printing

If you want to do 1 up printing, then I set it to "Borderless 8.5 x 11" and checked "Fit To Page" in the Finale print settings.

And if you go to Finalemusic.com, log into your account of MakeMusic, click on "my account" in top right corner, you'd be able to download 2014 in the "my software" area

Cheers,

Yes, currently, the Finale print settings are not remembered. Note that there is a Page Setup in the File menu AND in the print dialog now. Also double check that your Part page size is Letter landscape. (Use Rulers, not Page Format.)

Attached are two PDF prints of the same part, one printed using Finale 2014.5, one printed using Finale 25.

The Finale 25 print is the one with all of the white space up at the top. Now, granted, in older versions the white space was pushed to the bottom, but I think most of you would agree that this is preferable to having all the white space at the top, which makes the printed part look strange.

I am hopeful that there is some setting that I am overlooking, and that it's a user error.

The other thing I am noticing with the new print dialog menu is that it sometimes remembers things I don't want it to remember. For example, no matter what I do, no matter how many times I save my file the way I want it, one of my arrangements always has Clarinet, Alto Saxophone, and Tenor Sax selected to print by default, as opposed to say, having all parts (or none) selected.

Using Finale 2014, when printing out a letter-sized, landscape part (for marching band arrangement purposes), the music is evenly spaced and there appears to be the same appropriate white space on all sides. Using Finale 25, it appears to be moved toward the bottom. Let me see if I can print out some samples (gotta go back to my work computer to access the earlier version of Finale).

What is the ACTUAL page size of the PDF with big margins? Is it what you expect? I.e. Is the page being placed on a larger sheet, or is the music being reduced?
