On September 26, 2023 Apple officially released macOS 14 Sonoma. As we mentioned previously, we have been testing with beta versions of this OS and not seen any major issues, at this time though, we do not recommend updating to this macOS if you rely on Finale.


Until we are able to do complete full compatibility testing with the official Sonoma public release, we do not consider this within our system requirements for any of our Finale notation products.


We are aware of issues in Sonoma with Finale v27.3 with the ScoreManager that affects editing and adding instruments within the dialog.
