Noteheads overlay when should avoid

When there are two notes of the same pitch in opposing voices (stem-up and stem-down) at the same time-point, Sibelius overlays the noteheads.

The noteheads should overlay only when they are of identical lengths.

But the note G in the sequence is prematurely silenced: an unwanted side-effect of the slurred G beforehand in the stem-up voice. To correct this, Sibelius needs ...more »

Sibelius no longer respects dynamics of individual voices

Sibelius used to play back dynamics of individual voices in a single staff based on dynamics specified with that same voice number. This no longer works, it chooses the same volume for all voices on a staff.

 

This is really important in many places, including multiple instruments on the same staff, but also to bring out melody in piano lines, etc.
