The Auto-save and Auto-backup functions are widely misunderstood. May we please have a function in Sibelius that does what people THINK they should do - periodically invoke Ctrl-S?
In [Parts - Staves in Part] you can choose which staves appear in the part. The same should be available for the Full Score. This would allow something like a piano reduction to be available as a part but not visible in the Full Score.
I switched from Finale and I very much appreciate Sibelius's pitch-before-duration setting for note entry (Preferences > Note Input > Specify pitch, then duration) because that is my "native language." 🙂 But there's a glitch when adding TIES to CHORDS with DOTTED RHYTHM using STEP-TIME entry. Specifically, the tie is added only to the bottom note of the chord. To reproduce, make sure pitch-before-duration is ...more »
Welcome indeed, Sibelius 2018.4 !! Thanks for all these new facilities ! Beautiful slurs handling ! Urrah for new notes/rests spacing ! But ... why on my Mac Book the program does'nt save the Engraving preference "Verson 3" regarding Notes & Tremolos, always returning instead s to "Version 1 (!!)" ? If I select "Version 2" (as usually before "Ultimate") this preference remains active Could someone fix this (I thinl) ...more »
I frequently have to make changes to the default spacing between staves - either in a full score or in parts. Often, though, I will want to ensure that this manual spacing is consistent between multiple staves. It would be great if it were possible to select a group of staves, hit "Distribute Staves Evenly" and have the spacing average out between them.
Would it be possible to have different staff sizes in Panorama and Page view ? And, much more, automatical change browsing form one to other view mode ?
For me, it is more useful to better see parts in full size in Panorama, and shrinking them in page view for a perfect print layout
Still missing is that you can fix & save the channel routing. Everytime I apply some orchestral percussion, I hear oboes, trumpets playing when the drum should be there. I wish to assign channels for the drum staves, so I do not have to search with each reopening of a score where to get the sounds from. This is time wasting. And: Even if I add the orch percussion with a 5 line system, I only hear *one* sound (if finally ...more »
When I correct a score in Photoscore and transfer it to Sibelius, sometimes several bars are missing. And this at different places in the score. I can't figure this out.
Sibelius takes some time to load. I would be able to switch off unneeded parts (e.g. the ideas library)
I would be able to enter a new note (more distant than a third) directly into the upper octave when using the alphabetic keyboard.
You should be able to add an automatically generated Timecode to a bar or bars of your choosing. At the moment, the Timecode button found under the "Play" tab only allows you to create timecodes on the score at the start of each system or every bar. I would like to be able to select a bar in the score, and have Sibelius create a timecode (using the same logic as it uses for the current Timecode function in the "Play" ...more »
