Converting triplets to dotted

I have a blues (show) tune that I wrote using triplets everywhere to give it the swing it needs. However , I fear the resulting vocal score is gonna frighten singers (it would scare the hell out of me :) ). For some reason, I thought Sibelius at one time had a plugin that would convert triplets to t...

Surface Go and Sibelius

(I posted this in Hardware sub-forum, but got no feedback, so decided to put it to the broader audence...) I'm considering a Surface Go, to take advantage of more mobility, and because Sibelius won't run (meaning won't let me compose) on my iPad. Wanted to ask about running Sib on it, specifically S...

Surface Go and Sibelius

I'm considering a Surface Go, to take advantage of more mobility, and because Sibelius won't run (meaning won't let me compose) on my iPad. Wanted to ask about running Sib on it, specifically Sib 7. Anyone have any experience? Issues with storing sounds? I use Noteperformer. Similar questions w.r.t ...

How to control rate of ritard/accelerando

I need to ramp up fairly quickly. I want to go from approx 118 to 145 or 150. I've tried accel and molto accel, but neither ramp sufficiently, and the tempo changes very abruptly. I expect there is an easy way to somehow specify the rate of tempo increase, but I don't know how. Thanks for any enligh...

Re: How to make score smaller/larger?

Well, sure, when you put it that way. :D
Thanks.
Sometimes gazing at the Sib toolbars, one feels like one has been asked to pilot a Boeing 767.
Quite a lot of controls...

Thanks again!

How to make score smaller/larger?

Yes: smarty answer is "take some notes out/add more notes in". :D But I'm talking about the size of the text and musical notation. Sometimes (for reasons that have thus far happened accidentally), my score will appear with ~6-7 bars in a system, text and notation are correspondingly small. Normally,...

Re: Sib 7.1.3 Frequent Freezes

Will check drivers, but to repeat: H/W configuration has remained the same. Which would argue against a driver mismatch.

I forgot to mention that, after freeze, when I restart, I often get a dialog on startup (before Open dialog): "Audio Engne Error: Bad Settings". This requires a reboot.

Sib 7.1.3 Frequent Freezes

I am on 7.1.3, build 77 (latest I think for 7). Recently, Siblelius has begun freezing up while I'm editing. This is really brand new behavior. I will occasioanlly get a message that audio engine has locked up (not exact wording), but most of the time, Sib just stops responding to key strokes or mou...

Drum & Percussion patterns

G'day, In any compositional task, I personally consider the task of supplying drums & percussion the most tedious, challenging and (ultimately) least successful part of the process. Drumming & percussion, including the act of performing it, notating it, and especially composing something that "fits"...

Sharing teh Sound Card

Is there a setting whereby I can tell Sibelius to allow other apps to use the sound card when it is running?

I've not found anything under the seemingly appropriate Preferences

Guitar Chord Plugin

Does anyone know if a plugin exists that, given a guitar chord name, will enter the chord symbol and write the chord on a staff? I guess such a thing could get as elaborate as needed: choose 1st position, 2nd position, or E barre chord, or A barre chord, etc. Maybe add a strum/arpeggio marking? Yes,...
