To get a PDF into Finale just open the score in Safari and choose ‘Copy to PlayScore 2’
When PlayScore 2 reads pages of music for import into Finale, PlayScore 2 works in the background as you snap, so the MusicXML is ready to import into Finale right afterwards.

OCR that transcribes music into Finale with PlayScore is called Music OMR for Finale because PlayScore’s Optical Music Recognition for export to Finale reads the notes, accidentals, articulation, slurs, even tremolo using an optical process designed for importing sheet music into programs like Finale.
