Managing „My favorite plugins“ in Finale

Finale is a great notation program. After doing lot of work only by hand I start using plugins. Finale ships a lot of them (and you could purchase more or develop your own …). Now you have many of them, but use only a selection of them on a regular basis.

For easier overview Finale provides a favorite folder. How to get your favorites into that?

All plugins are stored on disk in your FINALE_HOME\Plug-Ins directory. There is also a favorite folder (in German „Bevorzugte Plug-Ins“). All you have to do is copy your required plugin into that folder.

Stop! – copy?

Maybe a copy would break your license (multiple installations), but basically a copy has to drawbacks: increased amount of disk space and hard to update (always update ALL copies).

So use LINKS for that🙂

On windows navigate to your favorite-plugin-directory and create a link using „mklink TARGETNAME SOURCENAME“. For example on my german computer I’ll do

mklink CHKRNG32.FXT "..\Partitur und Arrangement\CHKRNG32.FXT"

for placing the „check range“-plugin.
