Exporting Finale MIDI to Logic Question

Hey everyone,

I know how to successfully export MIDI from Finale into Logic, however is there a way to have the tracks in Logic say the name of the instrument as opposed to ";Native Instruments:Kontakt 5"; etc, so that it is easier to assign the tracks to the appropriate MIDI channel so it plays back to the correct instrument in the Kontakt player? It is taking me a long time to play the MIDI files with the incorrect playback and assign it to the correct channel in the Kontakt player.

Thanks.
It's a Finale bug.
I'm not sure about this. I've run into it before and would be curious to know if there's a better way. As far as I can tell, the resulting track naming in Logic is a result of how Finale exports the MIDI tracks. This isn't a problem in Sibelius, but Finale seems to default to the device rather than the staff name which is not very helpful.
