Well, there are two issues which might be valid arguments:|
But the most ugly aspect of the case is that the publishing house owns the rights to the piece (which is a very prominent composer's arrangement of a very prominent historical piece from the beginning of the 20th century). So they can (and actually did) prohibit a publication by another publisher (which would be an option for me). Well, I hope these aren't the last words - there may be a few more options to try out.
I have another piece from the same project with its rights being owned by another major publisher, so I'll see how they respond.
[And to be honest: I did these editions in the first place to have performing material for a cd recording I'm going to do next week. So the work put in the scores isn't lost at all].

Oh, that sounds altogether too familiar. Being as fixated on clean looking scores as I am Lilypond was the winner in my search for clarity. I recently had a similar thing happen with a publisher, the response of which it would be too much effort to make the conversion to Finale. I could have found a relatively easy way to resubmit in Finale, but thought it was a waste and complete regression of standards. Basically, I see a score and know often as not if it was set in Finale or Sibelius and those outputs really bother me. The most curious thing about the whole situation was the editor I spoke with who was pretty enthusiastic and a supporter of my endeavors was also very proud of the fact that he had originally gotten his music published because of his exceptionally clean hand. That amused me since there is no way a hand written score could compete with the output that is now possible, and I once had an exceptionally clear hand too, but that was before computers were more than fancy paperweights. Anyway, how idiotically stupid that anyone of use are even discussing such editorial absurdities.

As the thread starter I can say that I didn't get a contract to publish a piece for a major publishing house because I couldn't provide a Finale file. They weren't willing to either use a Lilypond file or pay for someone to newly typeset it. And I wasn't willing either because I think: It is bad enough that they (can) expect an editor to do the typesetting also, to let him even pay for the typesetting is just too much :-( Besides of that, I absolutely agree with your opinion ...

Look at the pdf from lilypond, and start clicking away.But are there solutions that could transfer more information more reliably to a finale file.No. ... oh wait, I think I've heard of some kind of sheet music scanning ability in finale or sibelius or the like? If you have that, you could try printing the music, then scanning it in.
