|I have about 300 Finale MUS files which I need to batch process to do the following: (1) open each specified file name from a list [included either in the script directly (if necessary) or in an external text filename data file]; (2) create a text file with the same name with a ".TXT" extension; insert into the beginning of the file, the contents of the "File/Info" comments' text; (3) append to the TXT file, the contents of ALL lyrics (without labels); (4) close the TXT file and the current MUS file; (5) repeat the proceedure for each listed MUS file. I believe such a FinaleScript might also be useful to others . The Plug-in for "Lyrics/Extract" Lyrics does partly what I want.
