    I'm trying to get some music I transcribed into a word document. I've tried using the Expotr as a Tiff file, but when I paste it into word, it looks horrible.

    I was wondering if anyone has any pointers. Thanks.

    I wouldnt mind knowing too....

    But what i do is print out the finale doc, then scan it and save it as a BMP or JPG.

    That's what I do too. I'd like to know if there's a better way.

    This is not a real solution, but should work as a workaround.

    I don't have Finale right now, but maybe I find another solution.

    Jeez it's like pulling teeth!

    Thanks JMX, and everyone else. I needed to know this so I could embed the music into my senior thesis for school. I'm transcribing a bunch of McCartney basslines. I might post one later.

    I think I'll just make the transcriptions an appendix...
