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 »

Mute Notes/Selection

I would like to be able to quickly mute a selection. I realize you could go into inspector and unselect 1st time playback but its a bit cumbersome and also then there is no visual indication that the section has been muted.

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 »

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 »
