|Up until this last version of Finale, when I needed to create PDF copies of charts I simply: |
open the Print window
choose Save as PDF
The Save As window pops up - the file name is displayed in the window
I modify the title, if needed,
The new file is saved as a PDF doc.
I open the Print window
choose Save As PDF
Save As window opens - the file name is not recognized, shows as "Untitled"
I type in the proper title
The new doc is saved as PDF, but the file title is also lengthened to include either "Score" or, if it's an extracted part, it states the instrument name.
So for instance, if I have just extracted a trumpet part from a score, saving as PDF and I give it the name "Huckleberry_Tpt" Finale saves the as "Huckleberry_Tpt - Trumpet in Bb.pdf".
Or if I create a single chart - like guitar - saving as PDF will produce a file name like "Huckleberry_Gtr - Score.pdf".
However, if I open a doc that was created with Finale 14, the Print Window PDF, Save As and file naming process works as it always has.
This new behavior is not helpful and requires that I modify every doc title after it's created.
Is there a way to change the Print Window - PDF - Save As process back to the way it was before?
