Program Concept Makeover

I know this sounds like something drastic, and it is, but that doesn't mean I'm suggesting scrapping the whole Sibelius program and rebuilding it from scratch... that would be stupid... However, I do propose some serious changes. Andrew Noah Cap mentioned on my "New and Improved Instruments" thread that Sibelius is currently not meeting the needs of its customers, as both the engraving and the playback need serious ...more »

Score-Lock feature

Sibelius should have the possibility to LOCK/UNLOCK the score, or separate features in it (notes, expressions, lines, text, etc.), in order to prevent accidental changes during review. For instance Pro tools have a useful "lock" function. With the "Lock feature" you can have a final score that can be open or sent to the publisher without feeling afraid that some notes have been changed enharmonically or some objects ...more »

Noteheads overlay when should avoid

When there are two notes of the same pitch in opposing voices (stem-up and stem-down) at the same time-point, Sibelius overlays the noteheads. This is incorrect when the notes are of differing lengths (e.g. one has a rhythm dot and the other does not): in this case the notes should be offset to avoid overlaying each other. The noteheads should overlay only when they are of identical lengths.
