Better quality EPS graphic export

When Sibelius 6 exported an EPS graphic, the exported file was simple enough PostScript that other applications could parse it and extract the vector graphic information. In particular, Microsoft Word could import the EPS file and use the vector graphic data (not the preview TIFF), resulting in a very high quality scalable graphic of publishable quality inserted in the Word document. With the advent of Sibelius 7, the ...more »

Have all MIDI Controller messages filtered from midifile export

At present an exported Midifile always contains some MIDI controller data (volume, pan etc), it would be preferrable to have the option to filter all MIDI CC data out.

 

When exporting to another system, these controller messages are of no use anyway - and have to be deleted manually.

Better support for font customisation

Formerly placed with the title 'Improve notation features (2)' part of an earlier thread suggesting systemic changes. There should be a way to export system settings. Local (document) settings can be preserved in a house style but this does not include things like modifications to fonts made at the system level in music fonts. Edits made to music fonts - for example slightly larger copies of existing fonts - don't ...more »

more detailed import/export of housestyles

I would like to see a more detailed import/export functionality, especially engraving rules and document settings. A housestyle is something that grows. One can setup a lot in first place but after a while some values have to be corrected. I have 6 housestyle and the only difference is the page-size. If I could select only, lets say, engraving rules to overwrite an existing style it might be very helpful. Otherwise ...more »

Folders in Preferences

Most of us have different folders for every piece of music. Once saved Sibelius remembers this folder when reopened. So far so good. I would like to have the capability to assign sub-folders to which the export-files will be saved like audio, graphics, PDF etc. When exporting ie. audio Sibelius exports the file directly into the audio-folder. If it doesn't exist it will create one. The subfolders should be chosen ...more »

Bug:MusicXML Still inaccurate

Exporting MusicXML for use in other programs using Sibelius' export function introduces some weird and apparently random alterations in note positions. Despite my best efforts to ensure that all live start positions etc are eliminated, Sibelius seems to incorrectly adjust the positions of some notes. This results in errors when the exported file is imported into other programs, such a LilyPond.

Turn off anti-aliasing when exporting video

Unfortunately, it seems to be impossible in Sibelius 7.5.1 to turn off anti-aliasing for note lines or stems when exporting video. This makes videos look blurry and low quality, even when the highest quality settings are used. Please incorporate video export without anti-aliasing, so lines and stems remain clear!
