    setting Finale 09 to be opened by 07

    I know there's a way, but I don't know the question to ask in the tutorials.
    How do you save a '09 file to be read by an earlier Finale?
    Thanks,
    Gary

    Hi Gary,

    Not a Finale user here, but try searching the help files for backwards-compatibility? At worst, you can export a music xml file and import it into 07.

    Gary,
    This MUST be done via XML if you wish to preserve layout, formatting, etc.
    Finale files are NOT inherently back=compatible.

    As Jim said, this must be done via music.xml

    Save your 2009 doc as an xml file, then open your xml file in finale 2007.
