Arpeggio lines on grand staff chords should play back correctly

At present, if a chord is spread across both staves of a grand staff, one can attach (using keypad 5) an arpeggio line either to the treble staff chord, or to the bass staff chord. The arpeggio line can be lengthened to spread across both staves, so that it looks correct visually. But, on playback, only the notes on the staff to which the arpeggio lines was attached will arpeggiate: the notes on the other staff will ...more »

Give option to let arpeggios play before the beat OR on the beat

Currently arpeggios playback starting on the beat, but it would be nice to have the option of making them always play before the beat.

Improvement of Arpeggio

This is so annoying that one has always adjust arpeggio-lines when added to a chord.

 

Sibelius knows the lowest and the highest note, - so why not setting this up correctly including a proper spacing?

Ties for arpeggiated chords

Currently, Sibelius does not allow you to create ties between notes in an arpeggiated chord to the full blocked chord, as shown to the left. The Sibelius Reference Guide (excerpt in 2nd attachment) admits this can only be done by manually by resizing the ties. However, when the score is changed, Sibelius does not automatically resize or move the ties magnetically with the score. Arpeggiated chords are used extensively ...more »

Add individual controls to arpeggios

Currently the arpeggio (vertical squiggly line symbol) from the keypad Articulations Page has only a global, course control found in the playback dictionary Staff Lines section that sets the spread in ms. Unfortunately, it sets all arpeggios to the same spread and if used simultaneously as might be found with harp and doubling piano in some scores - they all sound the same. The symbol parameters should be added to the ...more »

Apply magnetic feature to wavy arpeggio lines

When applying wavy arpeggio lines in front of chords you have to manually pull the chord away from the bar line to make room for the line and move the line to avoid hitting accidentals Ex1. If one copies this bar all your hard work is undone Ex2 or Ex2b. Surely the magnetic concept could be applied to these lines so that their behaviour is more manageable. Also the length of the line should always adjust to the extremity ...more »

wavy arpeggio lines before chord using two parts does not play

A wavy arpeggio line in front of a chord as in Ex1 plays back OK. However, if the chord is in two parts on one of the staves as in Ex2. the chord is not spread in play back.
