At present, the size of Rehearsal Mark border boxes or circles depend upon the enclosed text (and therefore the type size of that enclosed text). If, for instance, one has a circular border around Rehearsal Marks that are bar numbers, the size of the circle increases throughout the score as the bar number grows from one digit, through two digits, to three digits. The changing circle size looks wrong. This proposal ...more »
In the Default Positions dialog box, when setting the default position of automatic rehearsal marks (as opposed to those created with the Rehearsal marks text style), under Other objects > Rehearsal Mark, "Vertical position relative to staff" has no effect. I believe it should affect the vertical position of automatic rehearsal marks. In Text Styles > Rehearsal Marks, changing the value for "Vertical position relative ...more »
In symphonic music rehearsal letters using the alphabet are used to mark the musical structure. Also it is very helpful to add rehearsal letters showing the bar-numbers.
Both should be possible in one score without workarounds.
Sometimes, when using default placement with notes and Rehearsal Marks, the Rehearsal Marks occur to the right of the note in the individual parts and have to be moved back into the proper position. Grabbing and dragging the note to the right usually triggers the Magnetic Layout and the Rehearsal Mark jumps back where it should have been in the first place.
Sibelius 7.5 introduced a "convenient" way to navigate between markers in a score; by clicking on a rehearsal mark in the new Timeline, we're redirected to that part of the score. Please make this navigation independent of the Timeline (which is visual clutter) and mouse-less by introducing a keyboard shortcut for going forward and backward in rehearsal marks. Make it so that both selection and playback start at the rehearsal ...more »
Although I’m not convinced that anybody of the Sibelius team ever reads the ideas and bug reports I try to report one … I’d like to have alphabetical rehearsal marks without the letter “I” (A,B, … H, J, K, …) to prevent misunderstandings. I add the automatic numbered marks (containing “I”) and hide the I-mark. But in parts where the hidden mark falls into a multi rest it is ignored and the next mark, which should be ...more »
Not at the very top of my wishlist but still: It would be nice to be able to add prefix and suffix text to page numbers (in the same way that's currently possible with Rehearsal Marks).
