I'd like to have a separate track that contained just the harmony (chord symbols) of the piece overall - it could be input or generated automatically by Sibelius. Then you could choose in which parts (and where on them) to show/hide the chord symbols. This way, if I change harmony later, all parts would update automatically. And I could show the harmony over, say, the piano part in the full score but only over the vocal ...more »
When a note with an accidental in voice 2 is hidden in the same place as the same note with an accidental in voice 1, both accidentals are hidden. Can we have hidden objects NOT affecting the visible ones, please?
Sometimes, a combination of system text and magnetic layout can cause the "optimize staff spacing" function to create large gaps in grand staves. Whilst this seems like an unlikely combination of events (and there is a workaround by switching off magnetic layout on the system text) it does happen often enough to be annoying and consistently enough to be considered a bug.
Although trills are adjustable via the inspector, it would be great to have a variety of trill lines (sharp, flat, natural, 1/2, etc.) that play back appropriately. It would also be great if pieces without key signature ("atonal") would default to semitone trills, rather than diatonic ones.
It's currently default that a bar with notes in voice 1 and a bar-rest in voice 2 will copy without carrying the voice 2 rest. In the majority of cases a bar-rest in voice 2 is used to show a second instrument tacet, in which case it should be copied as well... and by default. If the user only needs voice 1, they should be required to select only voice 1.
There are a number of little tweaks I find myself doing each time I open a new score. Whilst I realise I can set up a House Style and load it up every time, I'd rather be able to set these things in Preferences and just have Sibelius open each new score with them automatically.
