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.
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.
For transposing instrumental parts, where the score is notated at concert pitch, it is often desirable to re-spell certain accidentals. However there should be an option to not allow these re-spellings to change the non-transposed spellings in the score. Currently, one must make a new .sib file for these particular parts in order to not adversely effect the full score.
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.
It might be helpful to be able to add empty bars at the beginning of a score. So we don't have to move and copy filled bars to their position after inserting empty bars.
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 »
When a time signature occurs at a start repeat barline, Sibelius places the time signature after the barline, and inside the repeat. This needs to be changed so that the time signature appears before the start repeat barline.
Sibelius is installed on a computer with 2 monitors. One for the program and the score/part, - the other for the mixer, inspector, ideas, transport, navigation etc.
Whenever I open a new score I have to drag everything to the right place. The "setting custom view option" in the property-box doesn't help.
I would like to save this workspace so whenever I start with a new score everything is where I want it to be.
Currently, Sibelius can only communicate with a DAW that is in 32-bit mode. Like many other people, I use Sonar in 64-bit mode. I bought Sibelius specifically TO use Rewire and now it's useless to me.
I am requesting that Sibelius create a patch that allows Sibelius 7 to communicate with 64-bit DAW. Thank you.
