Scorch is incompatible with all modern 64-bit web browsers

The Scorch browser plugin is now incompatible with all major browsers on all computer platforms, because all major browsers are going to 64-bit. There is now no browser, 32-bit or 64-bit, that can run the Scorch plugin on the Mac platform. ScoreExchange just announced that they are trying to find a way not to use Sibelius Scorch to sell sheet music anymore, and so is every other business that relies on Sibelius Scorch ...more »

Breath marks in the wrong position.

Sibelius attaches breath marks to the note head, which should be positioned between the notes. I would like a way to change their default position so I don't have to move every single breath mark over...and often up.

Working with Firefox 18 would be nice...

Scorch is terrific--and Scorch is the standard platform for online music sales. But Scorch has serious issues--enough so that Firefox 18 users are reporting on the Sibelius forum that Scorch is being blocked as a security problem. My understanding is that Scorch development was halted during one of the Avid "re-organizations" at Finsbury Park--and that those developers are aware of a number of significant issues that ...more »

Sibelius 7.5.1 breath mark malfunction

The new operable breath marks (commas) and caesuras in Sibelius 7.5.1 are a real blessing. But I have encountered one problem. Breath marks don't operate if the preceding note is tied. Can this problem be corrected? Also, it would be better if the commas appeared between the notes where the breath mark occurs. It takes time to manually nudge them all leftward, and sometimes they dislodge from the note where they ...more »

DISABLE THE TIMELINE!

Guys, I can see the need for the timeline (and it is very useful for LARGE scores), but, seriously, we don't need it most of the time. please add a checkbox in the "Preferences" that disables the Timeline until called for. Seriously, this should take at the most 10 minutes to program, trust me, I know.

Better (complete !) MusicXML compliance on export

In my company ( http://newzik.com ) we're hardly working on nicely displaying MusicXML files. And we like using Sibelius in our musician life. But it seems that Sibelius MusicXML compliance is quiet limited/bugged, and as MusicXML support grows for mobile apps, it may be good for Sibelius to improve its compliance. We would ever be ready to send you many technical bug reports with .sib and .xml files if we knew you ...more »

Playback of tied notes and hairpins; flute sample

When I place a crescendo (hairpin) over a note containing a tie across two measures, the sound volume abruptly drops when playback reaches the second measure. This problem has existed at least since Sibelius 7.0 and continues in Sibelius 7.5. I have encountered it with the flute instrument sample, but not with all instruments.

Background visible for Hidden items when erase background set

A added some text that crossed a barline in the score. I set erase background true in the Inspector. I then set the item to show in parts only. The background is still visible in the score and should not be, on screen and when printing.

Quartertone bugs

Please see for reference score my entry at http://www.sibelius.com/cgi-bin/helpcenter/chat/chat.pl?com=thread&start=667526&groupid=3& For certain instruments, when using quartertones, accents cause wrong pitches. Especially oboes, with accent >. Then I found that sometimes using legato slurs, or even the technical expression "legato" itself, caused the violins either to transpose a bit, or grace notes are added. !!! ...more »

Scorch slow to load Sib htm files

I was experimenting with the new Scorch on an Intel Mac using various browsers and was surprised to find that it was taking 30 seconds plus to load a simple, one-line part of eight bars, irrespective of the browser. I think that this is a bug as the previous version in its prime was much quicker.

Stereo Pan Malfunction

I use the Pan feature in the Mixer to create 100% stereo separation between staves. This is done to create tracks for choral singers to learn with. Vocal lines are represented with instruments - usually, woodwinds and brass. I find that, occasionally, when I export the file to wav, a single note on one staff, set to pan=100% right, leaks over to another staff, set to pan=100% left. This isn't a reverb problem - I ...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 »
