Mac Yosemite Finale v25
I understand that you took away the import of a .tiff function because you got complaints that this promoted stealing and plagiarism. If people are going to steal and plagiarize, they are going to do it with or without this function. When I upgraded to finale 14, I upgraded from the 20 year old Finale version, I think, 3.3. The import function was a lifesaver because I was able to import .tiff files of all my old finale documents, and create a working document. I did not have to input everything from scratch. Also, I have made semi-transcriptions of pieces (that are in the public domain) for handbells, and with the import of the .tiff file, I did have to start completely from the beginning (although sometimes, depending on the complexity of the piece, it might have been easier). Even with this function, there is still a lot of work, before you get the finish product you want.
Overall, I Thought this was an extremely helpful tool. I plan on using finale 14 along with finale v25 Because of this feature.
For those who think that this promotes plagiarism, Think of it this way. The solution of eliminating this function to prevent plagiarism is like eliminating the automobile to prevent drunk driving. People are still going to break the law. That no reason to punish the law abiding.
