We are aware of an issue where closing Finale while files are still open can cause it to crash This is a minor crash and should not cause damage to either Finale or to saved files. To avoid the crash, try the following when you are ready to quit Finale:

  1. Ensure that all open files are saved, then close each file (do not close Finale).
  2. Close Finale by using File > Exit rather than clicking the X in the upper right hand corner.
