Using the Text > Font menu option, apparently so.

 

(Assuming you are using full Finale.)

Finale for Mac doesn't have that as a choice. I tried creating text in Pages, which does have the strikethrough option, but when pasted into Finale, the words were there, but the line was not.

 

Evidently this is a bug in the way Finale set up the Mac text styles.

No, it doesn't. From what I read, the strike through is a text setup issue, not fonts. So, if Finale doesn't include that ability, there isn't anything to do. The only workaround I can think of would be to set it up in another program, export the clipping as a graphic, and import that graphic into Finale. Fine if you only need it once or twice, but pretty inconvenient otherwise.

actually for me it works... if I make a strikethrough sentence in another Mac app and then I paste it in a text block it maintains the strikethrough

Like Mike Rosen I am unable to make the strikethrough format appear in a Finale document.

 

Alessandro Melchiorre,

 

What version of Finale are you using?

And what version of Mac OS X?

And, what app on the Mac? It didn't work for me, in Pages.

Indeed that web site works for me, too - and I get  ̶S̶t̶r̶i̶k̶e̶t̶h̶r̶o̶u̶g̶h̶ ̶t̶e̶x̶t̶ in Finale.

 

It is neither practical nor beautiful, but it works.
