Slurs attach to cross-staff notes incorrectly

If a slur either starts or ends on a cross-staff note, then the slur attaches incorrectly to a point where the note would have been on its original staff, had it not been crossed to the other staff. See attached graphic for clarity: the slur shown was created from the third to the fourth note, both of which are cross-staff notes.

Cross-staff for part of a chord

I have not seen a possible way to cross-staff a note that belongs to a chord. The "way around" is changing it to a voice 2 (for instance) and once it becomes a single note, then it can be cross-staff. It would be super! if it can be done just directly. Ex. Cmaj chord, just being able to cross-staff the "G"

Features

Cross-staff over several staves (or different instruments)

In modern music or analysis examples it can happen that cross-staff music goes over several staves. Expanding the sibelius' feature from adjacent staves to more staves would be a big help.

 

Extending this feature to cross-staff between different instruments would also be a plus - although this notation does occur a very rarely.
