- Improved Accidentals and Rests – Finale 2014 ensures you see perfect notation of accidentals and rests, particularly in music with more than one layer, with less editing.
- Backwards compatibility – For the first time ever you can easily share files – back and forth – with the previous version of Finale.

- Expanded Linked Parts – With far greater control over what items can be “unlinked”, you have the flexibility to decide which items look different in your score than your parts.
- Music Education Resources – More than 1,500 worksheets, flashcards, and pieces of repertoire are now included. New additions include instrument fingering worksheets and a wide variety of titles, worksheets, solos, and repertoire.
