I am sure the folks at MM have heard of it since it has made the rounds on the ole inner web but why doesn’t Final embrace this fantastic work saver?  After all MM does include TG Tools and Patterson. Plus, I understand MM also  helped JW convert to 64-bit.

I included first pages of a recent score that has just been run through Perfect Layout for you to see if you happen to not be aware of it. MM needs to give PL some thought.

Yep!

 

MM includes lite versions of TG Tools and Patterson, just as they used to do with SmartScore. Teasers, if you will. If you want more, you pay the developers.

 

Let’s take it as a given that MM probably can’t develop a Perfect Layout solution in-house. So tell me: If Finale were to buy PL from elbsond, would you be willing to pay an additional $85-$180 for Finale+PL to have it included? I’m not slamming the usefulness of PL; I just don’t need it myself, and don’t want to pay for it. Or would you like them to buy it and include it for you at no additional charge? I sincerely doubt that will happen.

 

Consider my real job as a (semi-retired) cabinetmaker. I go out and buy a shaper, for $1500. But my life would be a lot easier (and safer) if I had a $500 power feed unit. Would I expect the shaper manufacturer to include it at no additional charge? Not bloody likely. Or if they included one and raised the price to $2000, how many people would resent that, and not buy at all? As long as the optional add-on is available, I have the choice to buy it, or not. Same principle as Perfect Layout. It’s out there. Buy it, if it adds value to your work. Skip it, if not.
