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 »

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.

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 »

Slow editing response in large scores

Sibelius 7 and 8 have unacceptably slow editing response time in large scores (Symphony, Opera, Oratorio) which contain many hidden midi messages (~C7, q=, etc.) necessary for the use of mixed sound sources (non-VST + VST). Breaking long movements into two or more segments is not feasible.

Soundsets for GPO 5 needed - how to?

As I recently wrote I purchased Garritan Personal Orchestra 5, hoping to have the optimum of brass sounds - to my ears, they are realy good and sound very natural and powerful /when needed). But Sibelius 7.5 does not "recognize" there is GPO5 in my computer, although I did install the lates version of Aria player and Plogue engine. So I asked at "MakeMusic" about the issue, and this is what they answered me last night ...more »

Lyrics lines should be individually selectable and editable.

It's not possible to easily (with a filter) select a certain line of lyrics in a song that has repeats and thus more lines of lyrics. The programm can create up to 5 lines of lyrics under (or over) one line of notes, but it's impossible to select p.e. just the lyrics of the 2nd line. Now this can only be done by manually selecting every syllabe. This can be very frustrating for instance when you want to write out the ...more »
