Repeat Problems at and after DS and 'To Coda'

A DS will not function at all if placed on a bar with a disabled end-repeat. Even though I have it set to play repeats after DS's: - Repeats after the DS are missing one pass; - When my "To Coda" happens on an end-repeat, the repeat doesn't play at all. Example: In the attached score, the end-repeat in bar 4 is set for 2 passes (play 3 times). It plays 3 times before the DS and only 2 after. If I set it to 4 times, ...more »

Bar numbers missing

I've encountered this bug a couple of times now; I create a lot of lead sheets with sibelius and use a lot of things like rehearsal marks and text at the beginning of bars and such. Sometimes I need to hide a few bar numbers (I only use them with the default on the beginnings of staves), so my stuff can fit in. But, and I don't know exactly why, it sometimes happens that all the bar numbers in the sheet just vanish, apart ...more »

Keyboard navigation in ribbon is too slow

The ribbon, when controlled with keyboard by pressing Ctrl, doesn't respond to keystrokes when processing the last one. I was using a MacBook2,1 that's perfectly suitable for writing scores with Sibelius 7 but I always have to slow down to use the ribbon with keyboard. It's very annoying since it distracts me from my fast-paced workflow. Keyboard buffer for Ribbon requested! Update: Just got a new Retina MacBook this ...more »

Sibeluis forgets my preference for alternative Sounds location

I deleted my Sibelius 7 Sounds library because it was taking up 13GB of space. Now, whenever Sibelius starts, it has a popup that says "The library Sibelius 7 Sounds cannot be found. Would you like to specify an alternative location?" Since the sounds are gone, I always answer "No" after checking the box next to "Don't say this again", but it always says it again. I guess whoever put that checkbox there assumed no one ...more »

Print count bug

When printing multiple copies of a complete set of parts, the number of individual parts is ignored and only one is printed. For example, if I need two full sets of parts, and 3 copies (x2) of one of those parts, Sib only prints one copy of that part, along with the rest. I have to go back and print extra copies of that individual part to complete the sets.
