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.

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 »

Rests do not avoid notes in other voices

There is a long-standing problem in Sibelius that rests in one voice do not avoid notes in other voices, and incorrectly overlap with them. It is necessary manually to move rests vertically to avoid clashing with notes in other voices.

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 »

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...

Better than flexi-time

I will admit that I am lousy at following a metronome. I also like to improvise and would love to turn improvisations into usable scores, even if just for my own reference. So here's my simple method (simple for the user, not necessarily simple to implement): Use flexi-time to record the notes, as usual, but then provide a way to manually mark the beats. In one possible implementation, there would a special "correction" ...more »

MP3-export directly in Sibelius

Although a lousy quality mp3 became a standard in the internet....

 

It's time to implement this as a possible export-format.

 

Add an option-field where user can select either wave or mp3 and depending on this selection a property-field will appear where one can set quality, bit-rate, etc....

Copy and paste tuplets

Sibelius should be able to copy and paste over triplet passages, which it cant do.

 

This can be very annoying....

Text size changes according to position

Hi everybody, I have the following problem I've never had before in Sibelius: the technique text size changes when I move it on the chart sheet. This size change is not reflected in the text window, meaning, when I hightlight the text when it's normal size, it shows size 13. I move it abovw the staff, it becomes significantly smaller, and when I highlight it, it still shows 13. I wonder if anybody has had this problem, ...more »

Share feature - just get rid of it?

As the functions in the File/Share menu seem to have been left to rot, shall we simply remove this item from the File menu?

GPO5 (Garritan Personal Orchestra as VST instrument in Sib 7.5

Hi everyone. Purchased Garritan Personal Orchestra 5 (I alrady have GPO4, and Garritan J.A.B.B.) Now I find that sibelius does not "see" GPO5. It only offers me GPO4, and J.A.B.B. Now, in earlier times for the ensembles there were VSt.dll files which I had to copy and paste into the VSt folder. I did so with the most current Aria Player which I updated after installing GPO5, but that apparently is not enough. I had posted ...more »

Soundsets for GPO 5 needed - how to?

As I recently wrote I purchased Garritan Personal Orchestra 5, hoping to have the optimum of brass sounds - to my ears, they are realy good and sound very natural and powerful /when needed). But Sibelius 7.5 does not "recognize" there is GPO5 in my computer, although I did install the lates version of Aria player and Plogue engine. So I asked at "MakeMusic" about the issue, and this is what they answered me last night ...more »
