Has anyone upgraded to the new version of finale yet, I'm not sure if it's worth it. Any thoughts? ???

From what I have seen, I don't see any reason the upgrade. Minor fixes are not worth the money.

I would have to upgrade my Mac from El Capitan to Sierra to use it.
 
I'm wary of system upgrades, as they always create problems.
 
However, I'm interested in using Note Performer, for which Finale 26 has fixed the input latency.
 
Perhaps if I wait for Finale 27 they'll also have fixed the output discrepancy so the scroll line matches the playback.
 
It'll probably cost the same, so I'll get more for the money.
 
Cheers,
Jer

I've tried the 30-day trial. In Finale 25 in High Sierra and my Brother MFC-L2740DW printer, Finale did not print black--it was about 70% gray scale. This bug has not been fixed in Finale 26. There are also new problems in the FinaleScripts I've created that worked fine in Finale 25.5, so I won't be upgrading. From what I can tell, Finale 26 was not FULLY tested in Mojave, and there are many bugs. I no longer work in Windows, so I cannot say how Finale 26 works for those in a Windows environment.

Thanks guys, I almost purchased last night because I'm a real sucker for this stuff but I think I'll give it a good amount of time before I actually do buy it.
