I use this FinaleScript to shorten note durations, mainly for phrasing and more realistic wind instrument playback:

midi
Menu Item "clear"
Menu Item "MIDI Tool/Percent Alter..."
type 85 near "Make all Durations:"
hit ok

This script worked fine in Finale 25.5 in MacOS High Sierra, but since I updated to Mojave, the script works, but it stays on the screen even with the "hit ok" indication and with "give focus back to doc window after running a script" and "don't show the palette when calling a script from the menu" checked in FinaleScript Options.

Based on my testing, the "hit ok" command does not work in Mojave and Finale 25.5. I have tried hit, enter, and press with ok, enter, and return, and all of their combinations. None of these works.

Can anyone duplicate this problem? Is there a syntax I've missed that lets "hit ok" or something like it work correctly (to close the script screen after its completion and return the focus back to the document)?

Thanks.

Does it work if u use tabs to navigate to the ok button and then «press spacebar»?

How would I use tabs to navigate to the ok button? Pressing the tab key doesn't move the cursor or focus for me.

By the way, the same problem occurs for me in Finale 26.

You have to go to Security and Privacy in the System Preferences and give Finale Accessibility access again.

Has anyone been able to successfully authorize Accessibility through an MDM Configuration Profile using the PPPC payload? I can get the accessibility prompt to work manually, but MDM Configuration Profiles don't seem to authorize FinaleScript automation in Finale 26.
