Peter,
I'm still using 10.9.5. But, I'd like to go up to 10.10 instead of jumping right into Sierra or maybe go up to 10.11 El Capitan.

I don't believe any of them is available for Mac yet. If I need to use one of his plugins, I have to take the extra step of loading the file in 2014.5 first.

On the other forum, a user asked for functionality found only in the Band-in-a-Box plugin. This is also gone from F25 and there is no replacement.

I used it once in 1998 so I don't miss it but, if you do...

I believe TGTools has a beta version for Mac. Looks like JW plugin betas are only for Windows.

Vaughan, I believe that a few are available in beta. But I may have misread, of course...

John,
How dependent are you on Jari's plugins? Currently, only a few of them are available for F25. Personally, I'm waiting for the full package.

Finale 2014 introduced the ability to save back to 2012. I don't know if this is available in v25, but it might be nice to have that back door if needed.

It is still present in v25 and v25.1.

Have you read what they said about 2012? :p

You can download the demo and see how it works for you, without affecting 2012. Many people find that 25.1 fixes many bugs in the program and runs better on newer OS versions.

Are you still on Mac OS X 10.9 - as your signature says?

If you are on Mac OS X 10.12 Sierra (or planning to get there), then you might like to wait for Finale v25.2 - read this thread:

I am using 2012 and was thinking about upgrading to the newest version of Finale, but with everything that I'm reading about it I was thinking that maybe I should hold off.

Agree or Disagree?

Thanks,


John
