Repeat text breaks multirests

Repeat text is very useful for writing "repeat 2x" or "Segue" or "D.C. al Coda" or whatever at the end of a section. But if there's a multirest, it will break it. In the example below, I want a single 7-bar multirest with Attacca written at the end. If I were using Tempo text to do this, I would expect the multirest to be broken, but using repeat text, I would expect it not to be. Currently this needs to be faked ...more »

Sibelius 8.6.1 legato wrong position for ID change

Hello, I encounter a problem after updating Sibelius from 8.6.0 to 8.6.1. I'm using special soundsets from http://www.soundsetproject.com for using Sibelius with EWQL Play Hollywood Orchestra. The soundsets work well from Sibelius 7.5 to 8.6.0. There are differences in midi messages sent when doing a decrescendo (and possibly a crescendo) with slur notes between version 8.6.0 and 8.6.1 and it makes sound wrong. The ...more »

Additional Lyric Styles(Text) are not shown in related areas.

I have added Text styles for Lyrics Line 6 and Line 7 to accommodate old Wesleyan era hymns with many verses. These additional text styles do correctly appear in the drop-list of Lyric Lines when manually adding the lyrics to the score, but they are not reflected in the 'Lyrics Text Style' drop-list control in the 'Create Lyrics From Text File' option (Text Tab->Lyrics). Also, the Add Verse Numbers Text Plugin also limits ...more »

Problems with xml export

I am using Sibelius 8.3.1 for Windows. When I export the .xml it contains, I believe, a couple of errors. I couldn't attach the .xml file since this ideascale believes this is not an allowable file type. 1) After the 1st double bar the positions given in the .xml file for the high c and a are incorrect, registering far to the right of the actual positions. The problem seems to be that the note positions are given ...more »

Organ Manual1+Manual2+Pedals = 3 staves record at the same time

It is not possible to record two organ manuals + Pedals (3 staves) simultaneously in real time (flexi time).

Does Sibelus receive on the all MIDI Channels?

Is it possible to split the recording according to MIDI Channels?

For example – Manuals = MIDI Channel 1 and Pedals = MIDI Channel 2

Sibeluis forgets my preference for alternative Sounds location

I deleted my Sibelius 7 Sounds library because it was taking up 13GB of space. Now, whenever Sibelius starts, it has a popup that says "The library Sibelius 7 Sounds cannot be found. Would you like to specify an alternative location?" Since the sounds are gone, I always answer "No" after checking the box next to "Don't say this again", but it always says it again. I guess whoever put that checkbox there assumed no one ...more »
