If you open a file in Finale but don't change anything, Finale nevertheless prompts with "Save changes?" when you try to close it. This is bad for a couple of reasons: if you always answer Yes, the modification time of the file is updated, destroying information of when the file was really updated, and possibly triggering an unnecessary backup. If you correctly answer No, this is not only what should be an unnecessary step, but it develops a bad habit which might lead you to incorrectly answer No when there have in fact been changes that you forgot you made.
It's been this way for some years. Every other piece of software I've ever used does the right thing--why can't Finale?
