What it does
In this category, you can specify different
folders to store your files in.
Music • Backup • Auto Save • Templates • Libraries • Plug-ins • Font Annotations • User Manual • Temporary Files; Browse.
You can specify different folders to store your files in. When Finale
saves or opens music or library files, it looks in the specified folders.
Note that Finale will use the settings from the Maestro Font Default file,
if the default file is stored in the music folder. If you do not enter
alternate folders for the temp files, libraries and music files, Finale
will store those files in the current folder. To select a new folder,
type in the path and folder name, or use the Browse button for the folder
you are changing.
- Use online help when available. Check this box to use the online version of the Finale User Manual when an Internet connection is available. With this box unchecked (or if an Internet connection is not available), Finale uses the local version of the manual that was installed onto your hard drive with your Finale program. Note the online version of the Finale User Manual includes the latest content updates and troubleshooting advice.
