Mac OS 10.13.2, Finale 25.5

 

I suggest two small changes in the Verbal User Interface (VUI).

 

The following two changes are small, indeed, but I know for a fact that they will help many Finale users.

When informing forum users about the meaning of these two menu items I have had many reactions like “If only I had known this years ago”.

 

 

1) Document menu > Show Active Layer Only

 

I suggest that this menu item is renamed to

Edit/Show Active Layer Only

 

This VUI change will make it clearer what the menu item does.

 

 

2) Page Layout Tool.

Page Layout menu > Update Page Format for Score *)

 

I suggest that this menu item is renamed to

Automatically Update Page Format for Score

 

This VUI change will make it clearer that the menu item is a setting, not a command.

 

 

 

*) Another thought:

 

I wonder how it can be made clear that “Update Page Format for Score” is a program setting, not a document setting?

 

Perhaps “Update Page Format for Score” should be moved to

Preferences - Edit > Automatic Settings

?
