Composers use MakeMusic Finale to create musical scores. When creating a new score, composers can choose to start from a template, which contains preset notation, text, and other settings. For example, a composer creating a new guitar piece might choose to start from a guitar score template.

In Finale 2012 and earlier versions, templates are saved as FTM files. Finale stores a set of default FTM files in the following directory:

~/​MakeMusic/​Finale ####/​Music Files/​Templates

Composers can also create their own templates, by using File → Save As... to save a score they've created as an FTM file. It is recommended that composers save the templates they create in the Templates directory, to make managing templates easier.

NOTE: Finale 2014 to 26 save templates as .FTMX files. Finale 27 saves templates as .MUSX files.

How to open an FTM file

You can open an FTM file with MakeMusic Finale (Windows, Mac). In versions up to 26, you can select File → Open..., navigate to your FTM file, and select Open to open it. In version 27, you must right-click your FTM file, select Open with..., and then manually open the file with Finale. (Or, you can change the file's extension to .mus and open it as you would a .MUS file.)
