1) Is there a reference guide for Finale script somewhere? The help file (PDF) does not explain ALL the commands of FS.

2) Does anyone actually answer questions in this forum, or is FS such a great mystery?

I'm also very interested in this. A scripting language is only useful if you have some sort of idea what it can do. The reference suggests how to use it to simulate menus and keystrokes, but it looks like Finalescript is capable of doing much more sophisticated things. Those things, however, seem to be completely undocumented.

Search the user manual for "Finalescript" and click on the "Finalescript plug-in" choice. That's the only instruction I've seen on Finalescript. I agree that it's a powerful tool, or it can be, but for some reason, MM doesn't support it. I must be Finalescript-challenged because I've tried to create various scripts and always need help to fine-tune the language--help that I've gotten here, by the way.
