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 »
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. So perhaps something like: select a few bars, hit the mute notes button or Ctrl-M, and then the music turns grey (or hidden) and the notes do not playback. Hitting the button again unmutes the ...more »
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...
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....
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.
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.
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.
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 »
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 »
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?
