It might be helpful to have an option for Sticky Tuplets somewhere in the Ribbon. Right now you have to know the shortcut or you don't know it even exists.
I had a request from a student today who is a guitarist for the ability to flip the guitar fretboard.
Cautionary Accidentals are turned on (checked in Engraving Rules) for most default house styles. I'd prefer to turn these on myself, if I want them turned on. This is extremely confusing when teaching the program, in particular, because accidentals start showing up when you don't actually input them yourself. (Confusing when teaching note entry!) Personally, I'd prefer for that setting to default "off," and have it ...more »
I believe the only way to access the Worksheet Creator is by creating or opening a Sibelius file, and using that file's File tab to maneuver to "Teaching," then to "Worksheets." It used to be an option in the Quick Start. That makes it much easier to show people, thus much easier to use.
I'd like to see a more centralized system in place for page numbers, similar to bar numbers, in Engraving Rules -- where you can have quick, single-location access for managing their position on the page and jump quickly to their text style attributes.
I've never understood why we are able to manipulate system text styles into appearing at very specific system object positions, but we can't do the same for system lines. There should be a way to edit a system line's vertical position, so that we can tell Sibelius to automatically put a system line at very specific system object positions (or not), just like we can do in Edit > Text Styles for System Text.
If we have to keep the Ribbon, please redesign the drop-down "menus" for Lines and Text Styles. They are almost impossible to comprehend. They're not divided by system vs. staff anymore, which was very helpful when teaching the program, and logical when using the program. There is also way too much information in them - especially the text styles - way too much text in there to figure out what box you need to choose. ...more »
Wishful thinking? Even though I know the ins and outs of the Ribbon, I don't know that I will ever be as comfortable with it as I could be with menus. It is so much more complicated now. Other professionals I know are constantly nagging me about how much they dislike the ribbon. It would certainly be something that would cause an exciting buzz, and it would probably be the most talked-about upgrade, ever (in a positive ...more »
