File Compatibility

Finale family software can open files that were created in the same or older software version, but files created in a newer version cannot be opened in an older version unless converted via MusicXML. PrintMusic 2014 and Finale (2014 and Version 25) are exceptions to this rule as they can also save Finale 2012-compatible files. Finale (Version 25) can also share files back-and-forth with PrintMusic 2014. More
