Preference to disable auto MIDI note entry

I often play my MIDI keyboard to test out variations of a composition. Once I have something I like, I enter the passage with the keyboard. In MuseScore, the MIDI keyboard takes on the sound of whatever instrument is selected (or was last selected), but note entry occurs only by explicitly turning on note entry. In Sibelius, I have to remember to hit ESC each time I test out a part. If I forget, notes get entered into ...more »

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 »

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).

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.

New Comments with "staff capability"

New Comments with "staff capability". Maybe implementing this feature should be not a joke.. but I make a large use of both comments and ideas, and many times I miss the possibility to write music inside a comment. 

A comment like "to do: creating a melody with these notes, or with this chord" and a small staff in which i can write the chord or the notes. Less complex than ideas, but a bit more than a text comment.
