Using Finale 26, whenever I open another Finale file, whether double-clicking in the Finder or from the Open menu, Finale opens in a new window.  I looked around but could not find a setting to force files to open in a new tab.  I seem to remember Finale 25 doing this as expected, but 26 always opens to a new window.  So I have to Merge all windows.

Is there a setting I am missing?

J D Thomas,


Is your problem isolated to Finale? Or do you have the same problem in all applications?


The tabs are a “Mac OS thingy”.

Go to

System Preferences > Dock

and examine the settings there.
