When applying wavy arpeggio lines in front of chords you have to manually pull the chord away from the bar line to make room for the line and move the line to avoid hitting accidentals Ex1. If one copies this bar all your hard work is undone Ex2 or Ex2b. Surely the magnetic concept could be applied to these lines so that their behaviour is more manageable. Also the length of the line should always adjust to the extremity ...more »
After the changing of an instrument on a staff upon the original instrument returning, an exported MusicXML file does not reflect the correct transposition changes. For example. I input Ex 1 into Sibelius. I then export this as a MusicXML file. I then open this MusicXML file back into Sibelius and get Ex 2. The C Clarinet is now transposed incorrectly. There is also a B flat key signature. upon inspection of the MusicXML ...more »
As I understand it at the moment the groupings in the mixer are somehow decided automatically by Sibelius. When opening a file created in a previous version of Sibelius I often find many instruments no longer attached to a group. The only way I have found to solve this is to laboriously create new instrument staves, copy the old part to it and then delete the original. It would be handy to define ones own grouping. ...more »
In a string part after the indication tremolo, nat does not return the playback to a non tremolo sound. nat. with a full stop (period) does as does the full word naturale. pizz, con sord and senza sord all work without a full stop and so although strictly speaking nat is wrong (being an abbreviation it should have a full stop) it is inconsistent with how other markings work. I found this while using an old file created ...more »
If you input a note and tie as in Ex1 and then select the note and press R for repeat you get Ex2. If you select both notes in Ex3 and press R you get Ex3 you get Ex4. Clearly this is inconsistent and therefore one of these is a bug. These situations should not be confused with when the whole bar is selected when both situations result in the tie being copied. This is then consistent and I think correct (the tie is part ...more »
On several occasions the following has occurred. when I go to Play > Setup > Playback Devices and select New ... After entering a new name and pressing OK the window Playback Devices also disappears. After this I can no longer bring the Playback Devices Window back nor does my score Play. I have to close Sibelius to recover from the situation. After doing this however the new name is defined.

The Fields Pan, Distance, Volume and Glissando Type seem to have no effect.
When I want a slow measured glissando I often write one as in Ex 1. This allows me to specify where the gliss. has reached part way and depending on the intervals can regulate different speeds within the gliss. The problem is that playback does not play this back as a continuous glissando. There is a "hiccup" at the middle note. This can be softened a little by a slur (which can be hidden) or by adding legato in the ...more »
