Choose Staves in Full Score

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.

Make a part act like a score.

I would like the ability to easily make a part "act like a score". Create a part, add all the staves I want to be shown on the second score, then click some kind of "act like score" checkmark and boom! a second score that can be formatted independently of the first. There are many reason why this is handy. - I may have two scores formatted differently. Like an 11 x 17 version and a study score version. - There ...more »

Bring back the parts window PLEASE

Please bring back the old Part window. Having everything in different places slows me down so much! So, what I used to do is have the part window open. I could see what part I was on, what part was next, in a lovely vertical list. All the icons below was everything I needed. I can edit easily what staves are in each part, I know what part is next, it only opens one part at a time (I hate the tabs thing in the new Sibelius, ...more »

Focus on parts

Add facility to manage and print a selection of parts together in one group from a larger score in the Sibelius First version. It is vailable in the full version. It also exists in the free Musescore and Note flight.

Add option to reuse tabs for parts

In Sibelius 4-6, Dynamic Parts by default were only shown one at a time. You could get windows for several Dynamic Parts simultaneously if you wanted, by using Window->New Window, which would duplicate a part window, otherwise normally you'd only have two windows open, one for Full Score, and the other for the currently-shown part. Unfortunately, in Sibelius 7+, the designers have given us the non-intuitive Parts tabs ...more »

Better support for font customisation

Formerly placed with the title 'Improve notation features (2)' part of an earlier thread suggesting systemic changes. There should be a way to export system settings. Local (document) settings can be preserved in a house style but this does not include things like modifications to fonts made at the system level in music fonts. Edits made to music fonts - for example slightly larger copies of existing fonts - don't ...more »

User funded development

I am wondering if Sibelius would agree to develop features if user(s) (crowd)fund the work. There are features that really matter, but only to a narrow segment of users. One example for me is easy entering of nonstandard keys and production of parts with the option to print in the nonstandard key or print in closest major/minor with accidentals for the rest, so that the score is in the correct (nonstandard) key/mode, ...more »

Housestyle, more separate settings for Score and Parts

It is quite cool to be able to do different settings for score and parts in the house-style. But in my opinion it is not enough. Most commonly a house-style is not done in one shot. It grows... I am still in need to edit a lot of settings like page-sizes, margins, appearance of bar-numbers, page-numbers separately. Example: In a score I would like to see the bar-no. in the middle of every bar but in parts underneath ...more »

Build Chord Chart "Part" from a score

Add an option to the list of parts that can be extracted from a score to include the chords in the score. Extract those chords into a simple chord chart, with chords written over a simple single line staff. This could be printed out for players who don't need notes to play along with a score, just the chords.
