Save-As folder incorrect after import from PhotoScore

In Sibelius 7, after importing "Transfer.opt" from PhotoScore, the default Sibelius Save-As folder is incorrectly left as the (rather obscure) folder that "Transfer.opt" was found in, instead of, more correctly, the default Sibelius scores folder.

 

This bug was introduced in Sibelius 7. In earlier versions, after importing "Transfer.opt", the Sibelius Save-As folder was set to the default Sibelius scores folder.

Improvement of sounds on Scorch

Could you please improve the sounds on Scorch when playing back the score... People are selling their scores on score-exchange and a good sound is always selling point. Why not a licence-agreement with, lets say sonivox SF, so the sounds come along with the plugin installed locally on a users computer. http://www.sonivoxmi.com/ProductList.asp?new=1&lstSort=Instrument&mnu=List&lstShipCode=D&optDetail=D&lstSynthSearch=Soundfont&sfpict=1&pagetitle=SONiVOX%20-%20Soundfonts&a1b2=379988135 ...more »

Scorch is incompatible with all modern 64-bit web browsers

The Scorch browser plugin is now incompatible with all major browsers on all computer platforms, because all major browsers are going to 64-bit. There is now no browser, 32-bit or 64-bit, that can run the Scorch plugin on the Mac platform. ScoreExchange just announced that they are trying to find a way not to use Sibelius Scorch to sell sheet music anymore, and so is every other business that relies on Sibelius Scorch ...more »

MusicXML import Sibelius crash

Sibelius crashes with a "division by zero" error when importing a MusicXML file if the MusicXML originated with a Finale score in which the Patterson plug-in "Beam over Barlines" had been used to split a beam over a barline which is also a system break or page break. Sibelius should not crash, no matter how strange the MusicXML might be. Attached is (a) a sample Finale 2014 file with such a split beam over a system ...more »

Sibelius 8: marquee selection broken

In previous versions of Sibelius, one could perform a marquee (or lasso) selection of multiple objects, by Shift-dragging (Windows) or Command-dragging (Mac) a rectangular box around them.

In Sibelius 8.0.0, marquee selection does not work, except for the sub-case of a passage-selection when the marquee includes a complete staff. Selections of all other types of object do not work.

First ending too long

The first endings always end (graphically) somewhere in the next bar, not exactly above the bar line, when adding it to a completely selected measure. There is a workaround, you can make it right by not selecting the whole bar but only the notes and rests inside that same bar, but sometimes it's empty, and then it won't work...
