Subj: RE: [kl] New .MUS files ready for download.

Even better, Sibelius 2.11 (the current version) includes a conversion
utility. You just choose .mus or .etf from the Files/Open drop down list. I
found that it wouldn't actually open the .mus files - it told me to re-open
the file in Finale, update the layout and re-save as an Enigma Transportable
File (.etf). When I did this it worked pretty well, except that some of the
symbol handling in Fin2003 is too new and isn't recognized. But it got close
enough that I could have repaired anything that wasn't right pretty easily.
The obvious problem is that you still need to have Finale (in some version)
on your computer in order to do this, which makes it useless to you and
anyone else who only wants to buy one program. You still might want to
contact Sibelius and ask them how to open Finale files. They have a clear
vested interest in trying to help.
