The Scorch browser plugin is now incompatible with all major browsers on all computer platforms, because all major browsers are going to 64-bit. There is now no browser, 32-bit or 64-bit, that can run the Scorch plugin on the Mac platform. ScoreExchange just announced that they are trying to find a way not to use Sibelius Scorch to sell sheet music anymore, and so is every other business that relies on Sibelius Scorch ...more »
Scorch should be useable on a Mac. Ideally on Safari & Opera as well as Firefox. It doesn't even work on Firefox at the moment.
OS X: 10.8.2
Most shortcuts like
cmd + h: hide window
cmd + w: close current window
cmd + q: quit sib
are working fine.
cmd + m to minimize the current window is somehow not recognized by Sibelius. Not sure what's going on. Was this forgotten to implement? Is it broken?
Please fix this. Thanks :)
It seems to be a bug using quick look in the mac finder to spot Sibelius scores using mac,s OSX mountain lion. It just doesn´t work! I reinstalled Sibelius 7.1.3, and also tried out older quick look plugins in the Sibelius package content with no luck. Quick look works fine with older OSX systems like the later Snow leopard but it just doesn´t work for me in Mountain Lion OSX. Are there other people having trouble ...more »
It would be nice if Sibelius Scorch had a metronome. This would be of immense help to beginners and opens up the prospect of being able to write instructional tutorials entirely within HTML.
Sibelius 8 broke support for Quickview on OS X. Previously selecting a sibelius file and pressing the spacebar (when in finder) would open a preview of the file.
This is standard OS X functionality and now broken.

I have a third-party Mac-compatible external keyboard, the USB 2.0 Keyboard by Matias. On Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, the keys are all mapped perfectly correctly when I use Sibelius 6 or PhotoScore. However, when I use the same keyboard with Sibelius 7, several of the hardware keys on the keypad no longer perform the assigned function. For instance, I have no way to use the keyboard to add a dot to the length of a note, ...more »
The Sibelius 7 Sounds installer on Mac OS writes the file-system path of the sample library installation into a file called "Sibelius 7 Sounds.xml" in folder "Libraries" at: /Library/Application Support/Avid/Sibelius Sounds/Libraries/ But if the user has chosen an installation location on a file-system volume whose name contains XML reserved characters (such as ampersand), then the sounds installer fails to encode the ...more »
