Apple has recently released the public version of their newest OS, macOS 13 (Ventura). We have been testing the latest versions of Finale with Ventura and consider Finale v27.3 fully compatible with Ventura. All previous versions of Finale (v27.2 and earlier) are not considered compatible. No updates will be issued for v26 (and earlier) and these releases will continue to remain in their current state.
Although Finale v27.3 is compatible with Ventura there are still a few minor issues related to the new Stage Manager and Continuity Camera features in Ventura. You can learn more about those below:
- Continuity Camera can cause an Audio Issues
- Stage Manager Minimizes and Maximizes Main Finale window (macOS 13)
- Stage Manager Prevents Finale from Returning to Certain Dialog Windows (macOS 13)
We are working with Apple to address these concerns to make sure that they are resolved in a timely manner. These will not prevent you from working but may slow down your usual workflow so we recommend that you hold off on using these features for the time being.

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.
