Engraver font errors when exporting to PDF

We are aware of a problem with certain document styles that use the Engraver fonts. Because of the spacing in the names of these fonts, Finale is unable to find them and include them in the PDF. There are several ways around this problem. You can use a third-party PDF creator to make your PDF files, or you can replace the fonts.

 

To replace the fonts:

  1. Go to Document > Data Check > Font Utilities.
  2. Click Search for this font and click Select.
  3. Type Engraver Font Set (with the spaces. Since this font is incorrect, it will not appear in the list. Type it in and click OK.)
  4. Click the Select button for Replace Font With and choose "EngraverFontSet" (no space) and click OK.
  5. Click Apply to Fonts in Shapes.
  6. Click OK.

Repeat these steps with the other two fonts.

If you have multiple files with this problem, you can use FinaleScript to speed up this process:

  1. Download the attached file (engraverfontfix.zip) and extract the file engraverfontfix.xml
  2. Navigate to the FinaleScript folder:
    • Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\[your user account  name]\Application Data*\MakeMusic\Finale [your version number]\FinaleScript
    • (* = Application Data is a hidden folder. To show hidden files and folders, go into Explorer's Tools Menu, Folder Options, the View tab, and "Show hidden files and folders.")
    • Windows Vista/7/8/10: C:\Users\[your user account name]\AppData*\Roaming\MakeMusic\Finale [your version number]\FinaleScript
    • (* = AppData is a hidden folder. To show hidden files and folders, go into Explorer's Organize Menu, Folder and Search Options, the View tab, and "Show hidden files and folders.")
  3. Place engraverfontfix.xml in this folder.
  4. Launch Finale and open the file.
  5. Go to Plug-ins > FinaleScript > FinaleScript Palette.
  6. Choose Engraver Font Fix and press the Play button in the FinaleScript window to run the script.

To avoid this problem for future documents, download the attached Document Styles (Orchestra, Engraved Style and Choral) and place them in the Document Styles folder. This folder can be found here:

  • Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\[your user account name]\Application Data*\MakeMusic\Finale [your version number]\Music Files\Document Styles
    (* = Application Data is a hidden folder. To show hidden files and folders, go into Explorer's Tools Menu, Folder Options, the View tab, and "Show hidden files and folders.")
  • Windows Vista/7/8/10: C:\Users\[your user account name]\AppData*\Roaming\MakeMusic\Finale [your version number]\Music Files\Document Styles
    (* = AppData is a hidden folder. To show hidden files and folders, go into Explorer's Organize Menu, Folder and Search Options, the View tab, and "Show hidden files and folders.")
