distance between staves

Yet another thing publishers and engravers are calling for is setting the distance between staves with numeric values in mm, inch or pixel. This is needed to keep the baseline on one page similar to the next. In german this is called "Registerhaltigkeit". When staff-rulers are enabled a doubleclick onto a distance-value could open a box where one can enter the needed value and choose the measurement (mm, inch.etc.) A ...more »

Instrument Family Names in Score

Absolute important for publisher...! Please add group-names. The solution might be the following: Add 2 text-fields on the instrument-panel labelled "name in group" and "short name in group". A doubleclick onto a sub-bracket opens a dialogbox where one can enter the full name and a short name of the group, the alignment and whether the inst.name (entered on the instrument-panel) will be left or right of the sub-bracket. ...more »

Virtual connection between two staves

Make two staves virtually link their contents. Example 1: Notation staff and tablature staff: When a note is changed/added/deleted in the tablature staff it will automatically be changed/added/deleted in the notation staff, and viceversa. Example 2: Linked dynamics: When dynamics are added/changed/deleted in one staff they will also be added/changed/deleted in the linked staff. Example 3: When a note is added/changed/deleted ...more »

Linked Staves (or Staves with a particular function)

As a professional staff arranger for a premiere music organization, it becomes to difficult to manage the balance between publisher quality music and a chart that is revision-friendly. In order for me to stem away from separate score/part files for appearance demands, I often combine instrument staves for the score to free up real estate and hide the individual instrument parts to "Parts only." This allows me to designate ...more »

Improving cross-staff glissando capability

I would simply like to draw the cross staff glissando arrow and have the gliss go across staff as shown but also be played. Sibelius can not play this but plays only half of the chord. This is essential for Harp. Here is the score as it looks and you will hear the harp at .33 seconds in Glissando, but its written incorrectly here and I have to figure a work around.

Prefatory Staves

First of all right now it isn't possible to create prefatory staves without adding another bar. Sibelius should have an option of creating prefatory staves only in the staves we want them.

Adjust the order of the instruments with the mouse

It's not very user-friendly to have to use the Up- and Down-Buttons in order to put a new instrument to the right place.

 

I really love that Sibelius put's new orchestral instruments automatically to the right place concerning the usual order of orchestral instruments. But if you don't write for orchestra you have to click on the Up- and Down-Button a thousand time!

"Compare staves" as an improved integrated function

I would appreciate when the plugin "Compare staves" would be integrated in Sibelius with improved filters.

 

Also lines, slurs, articulation should be available as a filter-option.

 

When comparing 2 staves with notes of diff. pitch but the same rhythm and articulation it would be easier.

 

Just an idea...

"Extra spaces between groups of staves" bug

The parameter "Extra spaces between groups of staves" in the engraving rules is very handy, but it doesn't work if the lowest instrument of a group is hidden.

individual indentation of every staff-system

There should be a handle on both the beginning and the end of every staff-system so that one can create individual indentations in every staff-line ie. in a vocal part the 3rd and 4th line start in the middle of a page while all the others are aligned to the left.

 

This belongs to parts with only one instrument....

Draw on all staves attribute doesn't survive copy/paste shortcut

I select a caesura Symbol, and tick the boxes for "System" and "Draw on all staves". I want to copy/paste it into other positions in the score. Ctrl-C/Ctrl-V retains the "Draw on all staves" attribute. Chord-click or Alt-click doesn't.

Hiding portions of unused staves in panorama view

Sibelius should have the ability and option to allow hiding parts of staves in panoramic view. I have encountered many scores that add staves to accommodate a few bars of an additional voicing such as a Divisi for string parts where two voices interplay/cross-over each other and putting on one stave would be hard to read. Currently this means creating an additional instrument line which may be empty for over 90% of the ...more »
