We are aware of an issue that affects font selection in Finale notation products with macOS 12 Monterey. This is an OS based issue, present only in macOS 12, and we are in contact with Apple about this.

 

Within the FontBook app (Applications > FontBook), the font will not be listed because the macOS does not detect the font even though it is a system font. This creates an issue in Finale where the font is still listed but as Missing, and this causes the font selection list to become misaligned and inaccurate.

 

This issue can be identified in several locations in Finale and can be seen with the following example:

 

Go to Document > Document Options > Fonts. Select Text Block from the Text drop-down menu. Notice that Times New Roman 12 plain is currently set as the font. Please Note that this is the font that this actually selected.

 

Now, click the Set Font option for the Text drop-down. Notice that this menu now shows that Times Italic is selected reported as "Missing." This is not correct as Times and Times New Roman are not ordered correctly in the font selection lists and dialogs. 

 

Selecting Times > Italic in most font selection locations will set Times New Roman Regular as the selected font. This incorrect ordering may also cause several fonts after Times to be affected as well and may cause some confusion on what font is being used.
