Re: "Add note names" in scandinavian?

If you want to add note names to the noteheads with the Add note names function I don' think you can do this easily. It uses the Opus Note Names Std font which (as far as I can tell) doesn't even have the H notehead. Changing languages (e.g. to German) makes no difference. If you have a font editor ...

Re: How do I delete a divisi section?

You can use Advanced Filter on the Home page, go to Notes and Chords then untick Voice 1 (for blue notes) or Voice 2 (for green notes) Select, then delete to remove the notes. Alternatively you can run the plugin called Delete Voice 1 or Delete Voice 2 on your selection. The functions Arrange and Ex...

Re: A3 and layout

Have you tried changing the Width and Height parameters (underneath the Page size box)? This changes the Page size to Custom. I guess this should be all right as long as you know what dimensions you need. You can do a Google search on A paper sizes for the dimensions of standard page sizes in inches...

Re: Export selected audio

Well, I suppose you could ask Bob Zawalich if he could combine the two plugins. He wrote both and is still active on the 'official' Sibelius forum (you need to register if not already done so).

Re: Export selected audio

Great! I may well use it myself some time. It's a 'new feature' to me too, after 13 years of Sibelius, and still learning new things.
Amazing what pops up when you dig around!

Re: Export selected audio

Yes, there's a plugin called (perhaps unsurprisingly) Export Selection As Audio in the Playback selection of plugins. Haven't used it so can't comment on how well it works (or not). If you don't already have it you can install via Sibelius File > Plugins or manually by going to: http://www.sibelius....

Re: Hand claps in sib 6

The built-in Sibelius 6 sound set already has hand claps, if you have that installed. If you go to Create > Instruments > Family > Others you should see Hand claps in the Instruments panel. Add that to your score and you're set, just add your rhythms. May not be the best samples in the world, but it...

Re: Natural sharp as cautionary

You may have found this workaround on the net: if you add a gracenote with a double sharp before the single sharped note then you get the natural sharp signed note. You can hide the false grace note and turn off the play on passes in inspector. Obviously not ideal, but there it is.

Re: Getting Bar Numbers Closer to Staff

Go to Engraving Rules > Bar Numbers Look in the Vertical position area. You'd want to have Below bottom of staff selected. Then change the value in the Parts section of Relative to Staff box, this is amount of space below the staff for the bar numbers in parts. Maybe try 2 or 3. You shouldn't have t...

Re: Tuplet not allowed in 2nd voice

Thanks for the information and solution.

For the record, this issue does seem to have been fixed in later versions. e.g. Sibelius 7.5 that I'm using.

Re: Chord symbol spacing AND staff spacing (2 separate questions)

Here are my suggestions (based on Sib 7.5): 1. Select all > Filters > Chord Symbols > Inspector (Ctrl/Cmd Shift I) > Change the Y setting to a +/- value to place the chord symbols 2. In Layout ribbon: use Reset Space - Above and Below on the whole selected score. For more or less space between stave...

Re: Dulicmer Tablature in DAD

Hi, I think may be due to a long standing issue that Sibelius assumes fretted instruments are fretted in semitone steps, whereas the dulcimer is fretted diatonically (sorry, I've not not had any experience of dulcimers so could well be wrong about this). See this post from 2003: https://www.sibelius...

Re: Testing Scorch

Don't know if there's a general repository of Sibelius files, but IMSLP has some Sibelius scores you can download. They're often from older versions of Sibelius, but usable.

Here's one for a Mozart sonata: https://imslp.org/wiki/Special:ImagefromIndex/219722

Re: How to Eliminate Key-Change Notation?

You can hide each 'cautionary' key change by clicking on it, then Ctrl Shift H (in Windows), which greys it out (for non-printing). (Make sure you have a line break at the end of each line to avoid the next line wrapping back up to the line before.) Then select the bar before the hidden key change a...

Re: Playback nightmares

Does unticking that Mute box on the Output screen help? Just a guess, I don't have a Mac.
