My system of determining pricing on simpler typesetting jobs like hymns is based entirely on the now-discontinued "Count Items" plugin. Is there any substitute for this? I'd be willing to pay someone for a plugin for Finale 25 that would do what the "Count Items" plugin used to do in previous iterations.

Go to Document Menu > Data Check and run "File Maintenance". Does the resulting list give you the information you need?

If you don't want to run maintenance on your working copy, duplicate the file and use that.

Couldn't you open the file in 2014.5, and run the plugin there? (Assuming you have 2012 or 2014, of course!)

I can, and I have. I was just trying to avoid having to open a separate program. :-/

And, N. Grossingink, File Maintenance does not give me all the info I need. :-(

But which do you specifically use for pricing your work? I'll bet it's not Time Sig Changes. :p

If it's just the number of measures, then that's very easy to work out. Alternatively, "Frames" is roughly the same as the number of non-empty measures.
