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...
Most of us have different folders for every piece of music. Once saved Sibelius remembers this folder when reopened. So far so good. I would like to have the capability to assign sub-folders to which the export-files will be saved like audio, graphics, PDF etc. When exporting ie. audio Sibelius exports the file directly into the audio-folder. If it doesn't exist it will create one. The subfolders should be chosen ...more »
Sibelius' playback of grace notes is often unacceptable. Sibelius plays back all grace notes as acciacaturas: i.e., before the beat and very quickly. I find the only way to get appogiaturas to play back correctly as they would be performed by informed live musicians is to notate them rhythmically as regular notes, possibly with an accent mark. Visually, that negates the intention of the composer who wanted appogiaturas ...more »
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....
This has been much discussed in the forum - it would be terrific to be able to shrink staff size only on certain pages where the music gets crowded.
Mordents, turns, and other ornaments should play back natively without the need of a plug-in.
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.
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?
Hello, I'm testing and comparing musicxml files exported from Sibelius itself and Dolet plugin. I'd prefer to use Dolet's export, because there are things like some texts and even fingerings not exported from Sib itself, and Dolet can handle most of the things correctly. But there's a problem with cross-staff notes, which Michael Good says it impossible to solve. The piano score with cross-staff notes can correctly ...more »
When I place a crescendo (hairpin) over a note containing a tie across two measures, the sound volume abruptly drops when playback reaches the second measure. This problem has existed at least since Sibelius 7.0 and continues in Sibelius 7.5. I have encountered it with the flute instrument sample, but not with all instruments.
Having magnetic layout apply to staves so that very high or low notes from other staves don't collide.
