After thorough testing on macOS 11 Big Sur, we have determined that Finale v26.3.1 and v27.0 are both compatible with this OS. We are not aware of any major issues that prevent the program from operating as expected. There are, however, a few minor cosmetic issues in v26.3.1 specifically that are present and we will continue to work with Apple to address these. For more information on these, visit the articles linked below.

All previous versions of Finale (v25 and earlier) are not compatible with operating systems beyond macOS 10.14 Mojave. No updates will be issued and these releases will continue to remain in their current state. Please refer to our system requirements for operating system compatibility information for each version of Finale.
