Additional Comments

There seems to be some problem with the MIDI tracks not being created or implemented properly. I don't know Finale well enough to speculate the cause, but I imagine the correct MIDI software installed might produce better results.

Curly braces and ties are fixed now!

I just upgraded from Wine 1.3.28 to 1.3.32 and now everything in Finale 2008 is drawn correctly (not to mention the graphics are faster), both on-screen and on the printed copy. I wonder if this is something that got fixed with the new DIB engine.

I'm so glad this is finally fixed (wine version 1.3.32)
Thanks for letting me know!

Things I've noticed
by Emma Cohen on Monday September 29th 2008, 3:15
-Upon opening it says "Error opening MIDI driver FINMIDI: Module not found." The console output specifies "err:module:import_dll Library MSVCR80.dll (which is needed by L"C:\\PROGRAM FILES\\FINALE 2008\\FINMIDI.DLL") not found. I think this is related to the lack of sound.

-Although it won't play any sounds itself, it will save a file as a MIDI to be played by another application; but movie player complains (/after/ playing the file) that it can't find the right codec (although that may just happen to me).

-'Save As' only shows alternative file types if I do it before doing anything else. If I make any changes beforehand or if I open the window a second time it shows a blank box there.

Oh, and wine's IE doesn't seem to be up to displaying the help files.
