Note-editor for IPad (and Android-Tablets)

Everybody is talking about... but no solution in sight.

 

A little easy-to-use note-editor for the IPad/Android-Tablets as a free download for registered Sibelius User would bring you miles ahead.

One can enter some ideas and syncronize them with Sibelius or export them as a sib-file...

 

You wont believe how many people would just freak out... ;)

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. ...more »

Alternative midi keyboard input method

When connected to a midi keyboard or digital piano (73-88 keys) and pedal/foot control, hold down the pedal/foot control to display note lengths/values mapped out across the keys and select what you need and then release your foot to return to note input. This could be a easy and quick way of entering notes with just your midi device and it's foot pedal.

Note input: Fill "from left to right" (as an option)

An option to fill notes "from left to right" (as in Finale) would be great! This is one of the things that hinders me the most in Sibelius. An option for this would be truly wonderful!

 

This is relevant during mouse input. Could be an option in Preferences (like Duration before Pitch).

Have an App for iPad to speed up notation for non-keyboard users

It would be very nice to have an iOS app to complement the MacBook keyboard without numeric pad and to have all the functionality of the keypad window that shows the functions of the keypad on an iOS device screen. On iPad it would be nice to have a stave that you could tap on a place on the stave to make Sibelius input a note or rest (or any other notation element) in the current edit point. Additionally, the whole ...more »

Transpose-able slash note heads

Currently it's not possible to transpose notes with slashes for note heads. If I create a rhythm sheet for guitar and want to copy it to the piano, the notes (slashes) are no longer in the middle of the staff. The command to transpose up or down an octave doesn't work on these notes. The workaround is to change the note heads to regular ones, transpose and change back. This only works if all your notes are slashes or ...more »

Tap MIDI beat pulse during input using pedal or keyboard

Would it be possible to play the notes in and play "click" using your pedal or keyboard key, similar to Finale. I would then just play the notes as slowly as needed and tap to the beats, because I know what I want to play in. This would speed up the input considerably.
