Re: Files showing as .pdf

It seems you haven't really got much of a problem. The files ARE .sib files, they open in the right program. Your computer has just decided to show them with the wrong icon. So the first advice is - don't panic! How to get .sib files displaying the right icon varies according to operating system.

Re: Making D.S. and Coda signs global.

Re: Anyone have Sibelius 7 Sounds

They're OK. They're painfully slow to load, even from a SSD. And unless you have 4GB+ RAM and a 64-bit system you can forget about using the full sound set. I wouldn't get TOO wxcited.

Re: Combining instruments
