| Wow, MakeMusic, you really outdid yourself this time.|
In 2014.5 I could enter accented text in dialog boxes (such as staff and group name Edit Text dialogs), é, à, ç, etc. Now, in Finale 25.2 I no longer can do that. I can copy accented text into those dialogs and it will stick, but I can no longer write it with my keyboard.
Thank you ever so much for a huge leap backwards with an update. A "free update", sure, as you so eagerly advertise, but nonetheless. Will we get the lost functionality back with a paid upgrade? I wouldn't be surprised at all.
Mac OS X 10.11.6.

|This may be another Win vs Mac issue, but I have no problem entering text with accent marks or diacriticals from the keyboard. I use either the ALT+4 digit method, or the ALT+3 digit method, or PopChar, or copy/paste from the CharMap utility, or a Unicode entry utility.
Yet another way built into Finale, use "Text->Inserts->Symbols".|

|After I updated to OS 10.12.2, my system went a little wonky including my trackpad. I performed a Safe Boot. Everything['s back to working great.|
Besides resetting caches to default, a Safe Boot restores paths the way that rebuilding the desktop did in OS 6–9. If you have noticed alias icons not displaying correctly, this will normally fix that, too.
I assume that most know how but if it's been a log time...
Boot while holding the Shift key.
Login at the prompt with your Admin password. Wait till everything comes up including correct icons.
Shut down again.
It's easy but time-consuming–feels like forever if booting from an HHD. Takes about 5 minutes on my 2010 iMac booting from a 2T 850 EVO SSD.
I try to do this once a year on my Macs but I rarely get to it that often. I have about 30 to update this month and will remember to do so after the experience on my machine.
