Tips for creating new ideas

  1. Be descriptive!
  2. Try to keep each idea localised to a single issue (as far as possible). This helps us and other users identify the issue.
  3. Do add attachments that help demonstrate your idea

Voting for ideas

To vote on an idea, simply click the up or down arrows to the right of the idea title/description. For each idea, you will see the total number of upvotes, and the total number of downvotes. The overall score is calculated by subtracting downvotes from upvotes, giving a sense of consensus amongst users.

Vote for ideas that resonate with you as a Sibelius user. We will use this information to help us prioritise future feature development in Sibelius.
