Sorry if this has been asked and answered--I searched but couldn't find anything:

Jari's Plug-Ins are intriguing me. If he lists one of his Plug-Ins as being for Finale2010 or greater, will it likely also work in SongWriter2010 or greater, too? More importantly, perhaps, if I just try one of those Finale2010 Plug-Ins in my SongWriter2010, is there a possibility that I could screw up my version of SongWriter?

I could be wrong here, but As Far As I Know, only the "full Finale" can use (external) Finale plug-ins.

You can find certain (internal) "plug-ins" in PrintMusic, but it does not mean that PrintMusic can use (external) Finale plug-ins.
Instead the plug-in functionality has been built into the PrintMusic program itself.
