"Music Engraving Alternative to Finale & Sibelius"
It isn't Finale or Sibelius. Enough Said!!!
Can't test it. the installer failed to install the frameworks files necessary to run the program. Why aren't the frameworks embedded inside the main application? It cannot be tested or used in the present format.
Potential alternative to Sibelius and Finale, both of which no longer support millions of pre-Leopard Macs. These two also stick you with buggy "updates" that cure one problem and then introduce a whole gang of new ones for future "revisions' to "cure. This is NOT an acceptable marketing scheme!
I need to create scores in non-Western formats; Turkish, Cairo Convention and Persian, just to mention three of many "non-standard" areas I deal with musically. Both Sibelius and Finale keep drifting back to what they perceive as their "base": church choirs, high school music teachers, rockers and other musically semi-illiterate types. Everyone else on this planet get ignored... about 95% of the planet!
Although NoteAbility pro also fails in these areas, I am hoping that they will respond to requests where Finale and Sibelius have studiously ignored all requests from us. I speak from personal experience trying to speak face-to-face with Finale reps whose attitude was as I would describe it... snide.
If NoteAbility continues to fail, I will have no choice but to continue using older versions of Finale which can at least be forced by kludges to imitate the correct formats.
