When you select a note and push the 'r' key, that note is repeated, or if you select a group of notes and push 'r' they are all repeated. However, it would be only logical (and nice) for rests to work the same way. Currently if you select any type of rest and push 'r', nothing happens.
If music smoothly scrolled while playing in panorama view, this would allow people to play along with the score and also make for a much more natural aesthetic. Also, if there were an option to replace the playback line with simply lighting up the note heads as they played, this would also greatly improve the aesthetics of playback (not only in panorama view).
Currently arpeggios playback starting on the beat, but it would be nice to have the option of making them always play before the beat.
Many of us like to work in true full screen mode, as was possible in earlier versions. That is no longer possible as you can't completely hide the ribbon or the bar at the bottom. Before you could hide EVERYTHING so that only the score was in view. For people using Sibelius daily this is ideal as shortcuts are the quickest way to work.
For transposing instrumental parts, where the score is notated at concert pitch, it is often desirable to re-spell certain accidentals. However there should be an option to not allow these re-spellings to change the non-transposed spellings in the score. Currently, one must make a new .sib file for these particular parts in order to not adversely effect the full score.
I know this is a big one, but a very careful and thorough adjustment of the dynamics that each instrument sounds at, at every given dynamic level, would be fantastic. In short balance all the instruments better, which would even mean re-recording some instruments (but not all). Some instruments are well balanced when playing slowly, but when speed increases their volume drops (clarinet for example). Some articulations ...more »
Scores with many grace notes take huge amounts of time to correct by hand. Some grace notes collide with each other or with the parent notes, while other grace notes are ridiculously far away from other grace notes or their parent note.
When slurs are added to grace notes things get even more ridiculous, in some cases it is impossible to manually set the correct position of these slurs.
