In addition to Paste, let's have merge, meaning sometimes you have notes that already exist on a staff, mostly at the beginning or end, and you want to KEEP them. With paste you must be careful NOT to overwrite them with what's in the clipboard.
When orchestrating, I like to be able to quickly double certain parts of a line, say, Violin 1. In Sibelius (according to tech support), you can only copy and paste whole bars of notes, so if the line you want to copy starts on beat 3 in 4/4, and you copy the notes, then try to paste them to an empty stave, the notes will always snap to beat 1 of a bar. Sibelius makes you add 2 beats of rest to get the part in the right ...more »
When pasting certain international characters (e.g. copied from Windows Character Map or from another application), Sibelius incorrectly inserts the text >Sylab|Done< and does not paste the desired character. Repro: Sibelius 7.1.3 on Windows 7 SP1 32-bit.

I wrote 8 handy plug-ins which quickly copy or move the selection around (MoveUp, MoveRight, MoveLeft, MoveDown, CopyUp, CopyDown, CopyLeft, CopyRight). I manually assigned shortcuts using Ctrl+ and Ctrl+Alt+ the arrows on the Number pad.
So I can share this plug-in with you all (it comes in handy so much), plug-ins should be able to do the work of assigning the eight shortcuts.
I select a caesura Symbol, and tick the boxes for "System" and "Draw on all staves". I want to copy/paste it into other positions in the score. Ctrl-C/Ctrl-V retains the "Draw on all staves" attribute. Chord-click or Alt-click doesn't.
I am aware that there is a way to import style information via the "House Style" feature. But this can be a rather blunt instrument sometimes, changing many aspects of a score. Sometimes I just want to copy/paste one block of text from another score, and I'd like it to end up the same in the resulting score. If pasting the text into the target score results in using a particular style for the first time in that score, ...more »
