Re: Brass Band Template

You've not answered our question. Do you Have Sibelius Ultimate or just plain Sibelius?

If you only have Sibelius, then you will have a restricted list of instruments.

Re: Brass Band Template

When the splash screen shows, does the word "Ultimate" appear at any point?

After changing did you try reset space above/below on the layout tab?

Re: Brass Band Template

OK, Reality check - are you using the full version of sibelius or one of the cut-down versions?

Re: Brass Band Template

If these instruments are missing, are you looking at the All Instruments list? Band Instruments is more akin to American marching bands than brass bands. There should be a template already set up with is a reasonnable starting point. Turn on the Quick Start dialog temporarily (I actually have it the...

Re: Publication Number on Bottom Right

Type it into the Copyright field on the backstage page (File tab).
Or just add it to the copyright text if you aren't using wildcards.

Re: Printer Problems

Go back to HP. Any mono laserjet will do the job and do it reliably for years and years.

Re: chord symbols and font

Tose are NOT the full ribbons. Go into File-->Preferences and check that you haven't got School Features set up in Keyboard shortcuts. That greays out and/or removes some functionality (quite a lot of it, actually). Cover up your ID information on that image or remove it completely. That information...

Re: Multirests not working

It certainly should. Make sure nothing is intercepting your shortcuts. M should bring up the mixer [ctrl][shift]m should toggle the display of multirests If you are on a mac, substitute [cmd] for [ctrl], though your screenshots look like windows to me! Try selecting the barline that splits the bars ...

Re: Multirests not working

In the absence of the actual sib file, I can only guess at what the issue is. Looking at your image, all the single bars appear to have a 'split multirest' marker, although it is difficult to tell because it is so small. These should have gone after [ctrl][shift]u. However, there are a multitude of ...

Re: chord symbols and font

Then don't just search or scan the manul, read it . Finale is notorious for letting you do things that are wrong. Read the manual and get your head around how sibelius uses the techology and the terms. If you have 2019.5, take the free update to 2019.9 With all due respect, if that's what you get (w...

Re: Multirests not working

Try the following in the part [ctrl][shift]u followed by [ctrl][shift]m

Re: chord symbols and font

Here:. engraving rules.png If you don't know where anything is, can I suggest you read the manual?
