When I use the ribbon search to find a command, the default action when pressing enter (or clicking the search result) should (optionally) be executing the command, not revealing it in the dock. Also, the reveal function should ignore mouse placement when clicking the search result opens a dropdown list where the mouse cursor is.
When you open up for example the filter list with keyboard pressing ctrl once, then H for Home and F,T for Filter, it would only be reasonable to allow the user to select a menu item by typing the first letters of its title (e.g. "cho" for Chord symbols or "rehe" for rehearsal marks). It bugs me that some of the functions in the ribbon are completely accessible without the arrow keys but all the dropdown menus lack this ...more »
It's hard to place e.g. block lyrics symmetrically when there's no rulers to show distances to page margins or edges or anything to show distances between block lyrics textboxes. Configurable gridlines would at least be easily implementable helpers.
The ribbon, when controlled with keyboard by pressing Ctrl, doesn't respond to keystrokes when processing the last one. I was using a MacBook2,1 that's perfectly suitable for writing scores with Sibelius 7 but I always have to slow down to use the ribbon with keyboard. It's very annoying since it distracts me from my fast-paced workflow. Keyboard buffer for Ribbon requested! Update: Just got a new Retina MacBook this ...more »
We typography-oriented notators need the text style hierarchy to be visible and editable, e.g. you cannot create a blank-page text style from a staff/system anchored text style. And also, it's quite hard to change a system-anchored text style to a staff-anchored one (or even creating a new style based on an old style but change the anchoring.
I'd like to have a text style ready for typing block lyrics on a blank page. Sometimes all the music fits on one page but the lyrics for 2nd verse and so on don't. So I'd need to have block lyrics for a blank page to have the same text style and formatting options. This is very usual with songbooks that the following verses are on a separate page with no music on it.
I think we need a completely different way of inputting drum parts than placing note heads on a staff. We'd need an instrument-specific drum trigger pad for percussions so that all the different articulations for each drum or other percussive instrument would have their own buttons or triggers on the pad. That way you'd skip the hassle of checking if you chose the right notehead for the right placement on the staff and ...more »
It would be very nice to have an iOS app to complement the MacBook keyboard without numeric pad and to have all the functionality of the keypad window that shows the functions of the keypad on an iOS device screen. On iPad it would be nice to have a stave that you could tap on a place on the stave to make Sibelius input a note or rest (or any other notation element) in the current edit point. Additionally, the whole ...more »
