Finale Help Please

I'm using Finale 2012 on my Macbook Pro system 10.6.8 and run in to an annoying problem.  When I have a file on playback and click out of Finale into MSWord, the playback keeps going but I can not easily get back to Finale to stop the playback.  I can go to the spotlight (upper right on menubar) and type finale and that takes me back, but there must be a better way.  I should be able to just click on the open finale document to take me back to the playback controls.

Finale is still pretty primitive in playback (compared with sequencers). Most windows are inaccessible while playing, and once you bring another program into the foreground Finale will not respond to that standard "click on its window."
Command-tab will display all open applications. Tab until you ge to Finale and the program will again be available.

I just click on the Finale icon on my dashboard.

This is a Finale bug I wish they'd fix. I click on Finale in the Dock to get back to Finale.

    Those all work.  Just shouldn't have to do it.
