It would greatly improve workflow if you could do a search for the symbol/line/text etc. that you're looking for once those tabs in the ribbon are open
On higher resolution displays, icons and text gets cutoff. The banners at the top of the quick start menu are squashed together and the + button in the upper right to view parts is extremely tiny. Also any text messages like the included image are cutoff as well. There are ways to fix this, but they all involve lowering the visual quality of the display. I'm asking sibelius to support 4k and other hi res displays, it ...more »
On a Mac laptop, you can use either option or alt (I can't remember) and the nearest letter keys (qwer asdf xzcv) to select the corresponding button on the keypad. (Q = upper left corner, S = middle button 2nd row, etc.) This would be very useful because if you have a laptop with no external keypad, it is much faster to do this than manually select everything with the mouse. Again, this has been available on Mac for ...more »
Allow lines like pedal lines, octave lines, etc. to be positioned independently on each system on which they continue. Right now, that is not fully possible and results in lines that float too far away on some systems while being too close on others.
I think it can be really useful for our lovely sibelius especially for orchestral unison and octave passes. One can choose 4 or 5 staffs and can define octave and unions before starting to write. For example: I am supposing we are entering our melodies based on violin II staff. And our midi keyboard or note entry is on Vln. II Violin I octave upper upper of violin II, violin II octave downer of Violin I, viola is octave ...more »
An option that can active and disable alt (option) button for key tip suggeriments. It bees very annoying when someone has a lot of shortcuts based alt button and other combinations. Because if you work fast and don't pay attention before you press another button you can press this and it actives key tips suggeriments. So it breaks fast workflow. Can be useful an option to able and disable that.
Hi there, I do a lot of video exporting for student play-along files. I like to provide them at different tempos, so I have to change it and go through the export procedure multiple times for each score to achieve this. Can we have an 'export folder of scores as video' plugin similar to the PDF one in future? That way I'd only need to change the tempo and save each file under a few different names with appendages like ...more »
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 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
