Better note spacing rules needed

When spacing on the system is tight, Sibelius note spacing rules are poor. For instance, in the attached example (shown immediately after Reset Note Spacing), accidentals and augmentation dots in the lower staff (where there is plenty of room for them) cause irregular spacing in the upper staff, where the extra spacing is not required.


This irregular result would not be considered acceptable by professional engravers.


Sibelius should be improved so that the note spacing rules do not result in unnecessary impacts on one staff by another.
