Finale warns of too many notes, I click "ignore" as usual, but then I get Finale Error 177, usually followed by a crash shortly thereafter. Am I alone in seeing this?
I can't help with the technical problem, but I do think that instead of "Finale Error 177", it should be called the "Amadeus Error" after the movie:
Emperor Joseph II: My dear young man, don't take it too hard. Your work is ingenious. It's quality work. And there are simply too many notes, that's all. Just cut a few and it will be perfect.
