I'm using a Mac with operating system 10.7.5 and Finale 2014.5. After a couple of months of not using Finale on my Mac, I went to start a score in Setup Wizard. I went through all the steps to creating a score, as I've always done. When I hit the final button to create the score, the Simple Entry palette opens, but no score window. When I click on the Finale icon in the dock, a default, single staff document opens (with none of the info I've asked for in the score, like tempo, key, number of measures, etc.).

Any ideas why this is happening? Do I need to uninstall and reinstall?
