GUEST,Tom Bliss Tech: Sibelius vs Finale (86* d) RE: Tech: Sibelius vs Finale 13 Oct 10

Thanks Leenia - but I'm not here to get help any more. I now know what the problem is - Finale are a very poor company (dodgy programming, poor market fit and almost criminal customer service). I'm no longer interested in using their products, but I AM interested in warning others currently choosing between Sibelius and Finale to be very wary indeed of the latter (I've heard only praise for the former).

A company that can get things this badly wrong re the Intel Mac (and the many other non-mac specific issues mentioned above) is really not to be trusted - even on PC.

My chosen option has been to start with PTLE 8 (which has a good, if basic score function that swaps with step edit mode), then output at a late stage to some other programme possibly Musescore for lyrics etc.

I found out today (at a demo by top producer Phil Snell) that PTLE has a dedicated 'Export to Sibelius Function."
