Setting A4 paper size works for the score, but the parts are still shown as letter size as default in the print dialogue, often leading to the tops of the titles or copyright being chopped off - although Sibelius at least tells you this will happen in the preview. I would prefer to be able to select A4 for the parts and have this flow through as default to the print dialog. I never use US letter sized paper - I don't ...more »

Using sound IDs to trigger different articulations by channeling them to another instrument seems to have a lot of promise, but I am thwarted by the implementation. If I have a french horn instrument in my configuration setup (brass.horns.french horn) on MIDI 1 and I have another instrument to implement the staccato (brass.horns.french horn.staccato) on MIDI 2, adding a staccato marking to a note on the French Horn staff ...more »
When you launch Sibelius and would like to play back your score from a particular spot, you can select a note and type 'p' ... except the first time! No matter what you select, the first time you Play, it starts where the play cursor was positioned last time. This is annoying.
Tempo primo used to work correctly in v7.5. However, it seems to be broken in 2018.1
I recently completed a piece in 3 movements. The final movement has an intro followed by a cadenza and then a section marked Tempo primo. This should start at the same tempo as the movement's intro, but it just seems to choose some random value. The movements are properly marked by Section End markers.
When I move a rolled snare drum note from voice two to voice one, though everything was green before the move, the roll markings (beamed slashes? I don't know their proper name.) are gone when the notes move to voice one. That shouldn't be.
SATB vocal sounds seems to sound persistently behind the beat. Doesn’t happen with other instruments. Currently use Sax sounds as alternative. Any clues as to a fix or better work around? Using recent iMac and Sib 8.2.
When adding information to the first/title page, I'm told to enter the information on the File->Info page. When I do, it never transfers. For instance, adding a subtitle to the work, trying to add directly, I get an error/issue message. I go to the info page, enter the information, and it never appears where I wanted/expected it to appear. If I'm doing it wrong, then it needs to be simplified. If not, it needs to work! ...more »
