I need to change the font of a few elements on 51 documents.
More specifically, how can I tell finalescript to change the fonts for both "Accidentals" and "Key" from "maestro 24 plain" to "petrucci 24 plain".
It would really be a drag to go into the Options/Document Options/Fonts menu 51 times to change it manually on all of the documents...
 
Thanks for any help!

nvm, I took care of it.
I went to the Options/Document Options/Fonts menu 51 times to change it manually on all of the documents...
I wasn't too bad, it certainly would've taken longer if I had waited around for the shortcut...;-)

Sorry I missed your initial post.

You can do this with Finalescript. There's a pre-made script in your Finalescript folder "Import Document Options". It lists all of these commands.

So you could have put all of the documents in a single folder. open all of the documents at one time. Made the font change manually to one document. Leave that document as the active selected document and run a script like:

process open docs
don't process current doc
import fonts options
save
close

That would have done it.

No problem smile , and thanks! I do lots of "mass formatting" and I'll be sure to remember this for use in the future.
