Re: Please Help!

Use voices (see "Using voices" in the Reference Manual). You'll need to add that dotted quaver in a different 'voice' from the semiquavers. You can change voices in the Keypad (View > Panels > Keypad). There are four coloured voices available by pressing the 1-4 at the bottom of the keypad. Say you'...

Re: Adding a double barline in measure

You can select the note(s) after the double bar line and use the Inspector (Shift Ctrl I) to shift the X position away from the bar line. Something like X=2 looks ok in the little example I tried. There may of course be other (better) ways to do this however.

Re: About slurs, again

I guess Sibelius still counts rests as notes, hence they can technically be slurred. If you select all the slurred notes, holding the Shift button. then press delete, the slurs will go. To remove all slurs within a measure or measures, select the measure(s), so they all turn light blue, then go to H...

Re: Guitar Strummer Plugin?

The Strummer plugin ships with Sibelius 7.5.1 and you should find it under Play > Plugins. If it's missing for some reason you could try downloading it from the Sibelius plugins webpage or via File > Plugins. I tried Strummer ages ago without much success, then gave it up. Hopefully if you persist y...

Re: Export from Photoscore/Import into Sibelius causes key signature to change

Also, try to make sure your score is as good as it can be in Photoscore before sending to Sibelius. Clear all bad timing errors, make sure notes are all present and correct and in the right voice, clefs, time signatures, dynamics, bar lines etc. Basically everything. PS can make a lot of mistakes, e...

Re: Using Filters to Select Articulations

Once you've selected the notes with the staccatos, just press the staccato symbol from the keypad to turn them off (i.e. toggle them).

Re: What the heck is this?

That's called the Playback Line and is always there by default. This is from the manual: Playback line: the green vertical line that shows where in the score Sibelius is playing back or will play back. You can turn it off (at least in Sibelius 7.5) by unticking Playback Line under View > Invisibles.

Re: Superman Theme Triplet?

You could turn the last crotchet (quarter note) into 2 quavers (eighth notes), turn them into triplet quavers (Ctrl 3), make the first quaver a crotchet and proceed from there.

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...
