It has come to our attention that the default behavior for the "Home" or "Back To Beginning" button in Finale for Windows's playback controls is not working as expected.


In Finale v25 and later, there is an issue with the Home button not returning to the beginning of the document as expected when using Current Counter Setting as the playback start option in the Playback Controls. This issue has been reported to our development team, and efforts to improve the playback controls to meet an industry standard are planned; however, this is a long term project and will take some time.


For now, one workaround is to click the End button first (to jump to the end of the score) and then use the Home button which will return you to the beginning. This necessitates an extra click; however, given the current limitations, it will get the job done.
