Fermata Insertion on Multiple Staves

When you are working with a score with multiple staves, and you insert a fermata on a single note in one staff, Sibelius should insert the same type of fermata in the same location on all other staves in the score.

 

That would make the insertion of fermatas easier, since fermatas affect the flow of conducting time during playback of in the score.

This should be similar to the hiding feature already used for dynamics and expressions, etc. Tweaking articulations allows one ...more »

You never can hear that change in playback, and it does not appear in the mix. 2nd.: Especially the double basses should have all the articulations available that there are for the other strings. In comtemporaty music, it is usual to have the double bass play things such as ...more »
