Combined hairpin line shapes

I would like the addition of two new hairpin line shapes. The first would be a crescendo followed by a diminuendo. The second would be a diminuendo followed by a crescendo, each of these shapes combined into a single line. These new lines would provide a quick and simple way to create a hairpin up followed by a hairpin down or hairpin down followed by a hairpin up where it is required that these appear on a single ...more »

hairpins and crescendo/decrescendo

In the dictionary one can adjust both volume and note-duration for articulation. Why not implementing adjustable velocity and Control-Change 7/11 (selectable which one should be used) to crescendo, decresendo, diminuendo and hairpins? This settings should be also available in the inspector being that there are quite often different ways in a score how hairpins should be played. Sure there is a plugin which does this ...more »

Playback of tied notes and hairpins; flute sample

This problem has existed at least since Sibelius 7.0 and continues in Sibelius 7.5. I have encountered it with the flute instrument sample, but not with all instruments.

I realize they are different object types, but what if a shortcut from within Expression text input would close the Expression text box, add the requested hairpin, and then open a new expression box after and perfectly aligned. A super nice thing would be to allow stretching or compressing ...more »

Return selection to a note after ending a slur/line/hairpin

I prefer to use the keyboard shortcuts when I can. So if there is a way to remain editing after I add a slur or line type. For example. When I enter a slur. I select a note, I hit S, hit spacebar to the length I want, and hit Shift S to remove the slur. Wonderful! so fast. But now when I want to enter the next slur I have to select a note with the mouse again. If when you hit Shift S, the note remained selected then ...more »
