Sound set for GPO 5

Please create a full-fledged sound set for Garritan Personal Orchestra 5. Sound sets for older versions of Sibelius, at least for 7 and 7.5, should definitely be available as well.

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.

Show full name of instrument when adding instrument (Sib 8.x~)

Since Sibelius 8, when adding an instrument, the prompt for instruments when you search does not show the entire text, but just a portion of it followed by ... . Previous versions showed a longer instrument name (so it was easier to differentiate "Trumpet" and "Trumpet [no key]"

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 »

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...

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.

Sensible glissando lines

Perhaps my oldest request, can we please get gliss and portamento lines that actually attach between two notes as opposed to horizontally over the bar? Sibelius is the only notation program that does this and you have to manually adjust it with the mouse. When you have multiple instruments and sections doing a lot of this it can get pretty infuriating...

Make Inspector Globally 'Pinnable'

Make the Inspector's visibility a program preference. Right now I have to pin it up for every new score. I use it all the time and just want it to stay out.

multible sizes for staves

very important for publishers...!

 

Publishers and their engravers need more setting options for staff-sizes ie.

 

Choir 100%, Piano-part 76% and Strings 92%

 

This is a very common thing to highlight dif. voices in a score.

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....
