When we try to add one or more measures at the beginning of a score, Sibelius makes a tremendous mess, as shown in the attached image. This is because the title, subtitle, name of lyricist and composer, among other information, are tied to the first bar. When add bars at the beginning of the score, it will keep the information linked to that which previously was the first bar. It is important that when we add bars, all ...more »
When one inserts a bar (into a passage where notes are already entered) just before a keysignature sibelius acts a bit weird.
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.
When a bar is deleted that is followed by a new key signature and/or a special barline (double, dotted, etc.), the key signature is deleted and the barline reverts to a normal one. Please change the behavior so that deleting a bar only deletes that bar and anything in it, not barlines and the following key signature.
I sometimes wished Sibelius would allow me to overfill bars. It should be possible to enable/disable this function.
When entering notes I sometimes need to convert grace-notes afterwards. Otherwise somehow it stops my workflow. This is one thing I enjoyed to have in Finale.
The space before and after the repeat bars should be corrected.
Still in version 7, a repeat bar is added without moving notes and rests that are around... This is not aesthetic.
One should be able not only to force a number of bars in one page but also to define the number of staves these bars are forced in on one single page.
What about a defining list of bars per system and systems per page, not only the predefined numbers of bars per system in auto breaks?
Noticed this in Sib 8.6 and it continues into 2018.1 Start repeat barlines collide with notes in a previous bar if they occur in the middle of a staff. It happens with beamed notes (not flagged) in durations shorter than a quaver.
