Copy and paste tuplets

Sibelius should be able to copy and paste over triplet passages, which it cant do.

 

This can be very annoying....

multible sizes for staves

very important for publishers...!

 

Publishers and their engravers need more setting options for staff-sizes ie.

 

Choir 100%, Piano-part 76% and Strings 92%

 

This is a very common thing to highlight dif. voices in a score.

Ties into 2. Ending bar

It would be nice if one of your developers could spend some minutes to fix this:

 

You always need a work-around when ties are going into the 1. and 2. ending. (including playback)

MP3-export directly in Sibelius

Although a lousy quality mp3 became a standard in the internet....

 

It's time to implement this as a possible export-format.

 

Add an option-field where user can select either wave or mp3 and depending on this selection a property-field will appear where one can set quality, bit-rate, etc....

Improvement of slurs and ties

Slurs and ties need dif. setting when there are accidentals.

 

b and "natural" have to be crossed by slurs and ties. When it comes to accidentals this is the engraving rule No 1 for the last 400 years.

Improvement of Gracenotes

Grace-notes are very difficult to handle when they are attached behind a note with a trill. When they cross a barline they are jumping into the new bar but need to be placed directly behind the note with the trill in the left bar.

 

I will attach an example later....

Slur/Tie over pagebreak

I would appreciate when you could add a special behaviour of ties and slurs over a pagebreak.

It is a very intensive work to add little graphics all the time.

 

Please see the attachment in the comment.

Change Staff Size per Page

This has been much discussed in the forum - it would be terrific to be able to shrink staff size only on certain pages where the music gets crowded.

Features

Auto-update plug-ins

Sibelius should automatically notify the user when one or more plug-ins are out-of-date, and then provide the user with the ability to see a list of out-of-date plug-ins, and the ability to select which ones to update to the latest version.

Improvement of Tuplets

absolute important for engravers and publishers...! The major publishing houses estimated hundred (and more) years ago have to deal with reprinting, re-publishing their old music. In the romantic era it was quite common to write ie. 13 16th in time of a quarter. I have seen this too often to call it a minor effect... The best would be to give the user the possibility to to make a "this instead of that"-decision ie. ...more »

Improvement of Glissando

Glissando needs an improvement. When one adds a glissando to a note w/o a goal-note playback wont play the glissando. So a fall or gliss-down wont work.

 

It also would be great to set the startpoint and duration of a glissando.

Example:

When a glissando is added to a whole-note the duration of the glissando covers the complete note-duration, even when the gliss should be played at the very end of a note.

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... ;)
