Multiple Full Scores in Single File

Currently there is only one Full Score option and many parts options available. I'd like to be able to create multiple Full Scores - linked to parts.

Show bar rests: separate setting for score and parts

I'd love to be able to set "Show bar rests" (in Engraving Rules) separately for score and parts.

There are many reason why this is handy. - I may have two scores formatted differently. Like an 11 x 17 version and a study score version. - There ...more »

Return playback sound choice to mixer

In older versions of Sib it was possible to easily reassign playback sounds for each stave from the Mixer. Each stave/channel revealed the instrument assigned to it and allowed that to be changed. This has disappeared in the more recent versions. As an arranger, I miss having the ability to easily reassign different sounds without having to add a new stave to the score, copy the notes into it, audition the results, ...more »
