Print with Enter key in Print dialog

Sibelius 7.5 doesn't use the Windows convention of allowing to use the Enter key in a print dialog to begin printing. In Sibelius 7.5, you have to click on the Print button to start printing instead. It might not seem to be such a big problem, but it's pretty annoying to me. I don't see a reason why Sibelius can't behave as other Windows applications do. Sibelius 5 allowed you to begin printing with the Enter key, ...more »

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.

Dashed lines between two notes

On the same manner that a simple tie keeps always his extremities between two notes, it should be a very useful option to have the possibility to write a dashed line between two notes of a melodic line who dumps from a staff to an other.

It's very useful for transcribers of polyphonic peaces to organ scores where artist like to follow the melodic line.

Option to remove/not install the Application Manager

Honestly, the Application Manager is little more than a marketing tool to push notices and marketing info on users. One user already wants to disable it and another wants you to dump Java. How about just dumping the marketing tool all together? Notices for available upgrades already come from within Sibelius so there's absolutely no legitimate need for the Application Manager.

Beam over rests for one passage not the whole score in Sib 8

Does anyone have a workaround for beaming over rests when you just want to beam over rests for one line, not the entire score in Sibelius 8? There used to be a way in Sibelius 6 but now whatever I try changes the entire project.

Sibelius Proprietary Tablet

A proprietary tablet custom designed for professional musicians, and groups of musicians, in a local network using Sibelius as the engine. The tablet system would meet this criteria: 1) True 9x12 inch screen size matching that of traditional printed music sheets. 2) Two 9x12 inch screen tablets hinged together as a book to match common printed music form, and for portability. 3) Wifi connection with a master/sub ...more »

Chord symbols and chord diagram with transposing instruments

At the moment Sibelius 7.1.3 has an anomalous situation where chord symbols (chord names) associated with a transposing instrument part ARE transposed with the transposing instrument part via "transposing score" However the associated concert (sounding) pitch fretted chord diagram is NOT transpose. This results in the weird phenomenon where the transposed chord symbol (chord name) does not match the fretted chord ...more »

Using aax dsp plugins in Insert or as effects

Would be great to be able using aax dsp plugins in order to relieve cpu when playing or exporting the score.

Sibelius is an Avid products, so this is desheartening that axx plugins are ignored while only vst and audiounits are only proposed.

Also it would be great that all the plugins would be classified by categories or at least listed alphabetically.

Thanks for reading

LAYOUT defaults

I am a Sibelius user since v1 writing for big band and combos and currently on v8. From the beginning I have had to run my own templates for the groups I write for. The default settings in Layout are wasteful of space so I make my pages 10mm all around on extracted parts but then I have to go into document setup and change the 'No names' 3.8 to 0 [in a 7point page size] otherwise the margins are still not 10mm.
