Unfortunately, it seems to be impossible in Sibelius 7.5.1 to turn off anti-aliasing for note lines or stems when exporting video. This makes videos look blurry and low quality, even when the highest quality settings are used. Please incorporate video export without anti-aliasing, so lines and stems remain clear!
It would be helpful to include an export option for ABC (a notation used especially for folk music). Currently the only path is to export to XML and then find an XML-to-ABC converter.
The reverse direction is less necessary.
I have been trying different ways to create a songbook with MS Publisher and adding Sibelius notations to it. - One way was creating PDFs in both and merge them with pdfsam. It's a bit fussily on a 200p document, works only with full pages, but finally I got a high quality PDF document - Another way was to create 600dpi TIFFs or PNGs and import them into MS Publisher. The 1200dpi was too much for the Publisher :-( The ...more »
MP3 is not friendly regarding multilingual ID3 data. An MP3 file may display ID3 correctly on a machine but incorrectly on another machine in different languages.

Thus, please support iTunes Plus export with loudness normalization and multi-band compression. Also, it will be useful to auto-trim the long silence ...more »
Perhaps this problem has been reported before. I'm using Sibelius 7.5. When repeated notes follow a fermata, the second note in the series isn't sounded during playback and export. (Sometimes it sounds, but the volume is practically inaudible.) I tried to get around it by putting the repeated note on an ossia staff, but then I got unpredictable errors in the sound library. The only workaround that reliably helped ...more »
Formerly placed with the title 'Improve notation features (2)' part of an earlier thread suggesting systemic changes. There should be a way to export system settings. Local (document) settings can be preserved in a house style but this does not include things like modifications to fonts made at the system level in music fonts. Edits made to music fonts - for example slightly larger copies of existing fonts - don't ...more »
