I was one of the first guys back in Germany to start using Finale. A lot has happened since then. Do you younger folks even know that Finale once was the unrivaled notation software for Mac and PC? Well, sleeping through the years, Finale has completely missed the train and has now been taken over by even free notation software like Musescore at Colleges and otherwise. No iPad version, a user interface that is completely outdated, sluggish in so many ways, and still not fun to learn at all. At my College 95 percent of our students now prefer Musescore over Finale. Is Finale better? Sure, especially if you need the advanced features it offers, like I do. But this is not enough to bring in new customers.
To demonstrate how far behind Finale is, just think of the fact that it doesn't even have a key command editor. Yes, we still can not add our own key commands to a menu idem.
Or try to option-drag text or a chord symbol to quickly duplicate it. No luck there. We can not even select non-consecutive music and copy it.
So many things young people are used to won't work in Finale. Yes, I am still using it, because I used it for 25 years. Would I start learning it today, probably not. Sad!
