The Auto-save and Auto-backup functions are widely misunderstood. May we please have a function in Sibelius that does what people THINK they should do - periodically invoke Ctrl-S?
The new behaviour in 8.7.2 has merit. But consider a section in 7/4 time, which has been 'split' with a dotted barline. The Split Bars function works well. But even if one of the non-splitting barline types is chosen, it still splits a multirest. If this can be made to work properly, perhaps Dashed should be added to the list of non-splitting special barlines. Or new types could be added - splitting-dashed and non-splitting-dashed. ...more »
Please may we have full control over which staves to select in System Object Positions. Let us choose every stave if we wish. I'm amazed to discover this doesn't seem to have been requested already!
As the functions in the File/Share menu seem to have been left to rot, shall we simply remove this item from the File menu?
We now have individually-coloured noteheads. Can "transparent" be added to the available colours? Thus enabling hiding one note in a chord.
It's been announced that in Sibelius 8.3 "Rests are now cleaned up nicely when sliding notes and rests, based on Time Signature and beam group". There's improvement, but room for more! Notes are mangled too.
May we have the old, less blocky font back for the Keypad please? The one where normal notes and gracenotes looked different.
In Sibelius 8.2, Reset Design reverts all accidentals to the Harmonic Chromatic scale of the key signature. This happens both in Score and Parts. Presumably an unintended side effect of the new independent enharmonic spellings in Parts?
In the main forum, we've been told that number of requests will be taken into consideration when prioritising feature additions to forthcoming Sibelius versions.
If we take this seriously, we must be careful to upvote selectively. Vote for the ones you WANT, not just anything that doesn't seem a bad idea!
In Sibelius 7 Sounds, the Trombone and Tuba (maybe others, I haven't tested yet) samples switched in by a Sound ID of "+accent" are fixed-length, they don't sustain beyond a couple of seconds. Please correct this.
I have onboard sound for Skype etc., a quality audio interface for DAW work. Not, I imagine, a unique setup. If I forget to power the external interface before starting Sibelius, it defaults to the onboard sound. But next time I start Sibelius, this setting is remembered. I have to go to Audio Engine and re-choose my external interface. When I open a score that expects a different playback device to my default one, ...more »
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.
