Sometimes if I've been using Sibelius 7.5 for a few hours, some of the keyboard shortcuts stop working, especially ⌘+K for chord symbols. How do I fix this?
If the Sibelius user-interface language is set to (a) Brazilian Portuguese, or (b) Russian, then Chord Symbols (entered after Ctrl-K) are not recognised, and remain in red. Also, the list of available chord symbols in the dialogue "Edit Chord Symbols" is empty (which might be why Chord Symbols are not being recognised).

There should be a feature that creates a chord diagram based on the frets and string placement specified in tablature below. Right now, chord diagrams are created completely independently of tablature specification.
Entering chord names via playing the chord is a great time saver. However, most of us have preferred rootless voicings. Some of these voicings produce an "OMIT phrase. This - though correct - is very annoying in most professional situations.

Then, if the "RE-USE" option is selected: *) If there is not already a "Gen. XXX Staff", then add one and proceed as currently. *) If there is already a "Gen. XXX Staff", ...more »
Add an option to the list of parts that can be extracted from a score to include the chords in the score. Extract those chords into a simple chord chart, with chords written over a simple single line staff. This could be printed out for players who don't need notes to play along with a score, just the chords.
The American way of notating these chords is 7#9, but here in Holland we normally use the b10 notation, based on the idea that there is only one 9th in a chord (because if using two different versions of one note in chord would mean that you could write 7b3 or m7b11 or something for this chord), in which case 7b9#9-chords wouldn't exist...
