Re: Re-activate Sibelius 7.1

You can't. Avid will let you open a case with registration support, and will help reset it, but Sib 7.1 has passed it's support date.

Re: Formatting problen in Sibelius 6

This is not actually a Sib problem but a Mac one. You need to make sure that your mac has properly recognised and installed all the fonts. If you have had a Mac OS upgrade this could be responsible for the snafu.

Re: Bass line dropout on Piano accompaniment

That's always possible. See if any earlier versions exist in your Backup scores folder. The smaller the number the longer ago it was saved. You might be able to recover it.

Re: Bass line dropout on Piano accompaniment

If the sample library doesn't go that low you won't get a sound. MIDI has a pretty much unlimited range because it doesn't rely on samples.

Re: extra staff problem

In a word - no! Extra staves are fixed. That's the whole point of them. If you want to change the order, you could try two methods: 1. Select the staff you want to move and another staff where you want it to go. use the plugin Exchange Staff Contents 2. Use ordinary instruments instead of extra stav...

Re: Getting true flat/sharp signs in text

Not really. These symbols (as you might imagine) are basic solid parts of Sibelius. the only thing that comes to mind is an issue with Macs and fonts. other than that I am all clued out.

Re: Getting true flat/sharp signs in text

You haven't edited the standard font assignments at any time, have you? Even the basic sibelius and the free Sib|First both have these symbols AFAIK.

Re: Getting true flat/sharp signs in text

Have you checked out the rt-click menu for text entry? That should bring up a list of all available symbols of this type.
AFAIK, there is always an unintended consequence to altering the size of chord symbols text.

Re: Manually deactivate/reactivate -- but how?

It's worth noting that this forum is largely moribund. Apart from myself and a very small number of other die-hards it is not visited by anyone much and certainly not by any AVID employees. You can get much quicker help from one of the FB pages or from the avid forum itself at https://www.sibelius.c...

Re: Getting true flat/sharp signs in text

Does [ctrl][numpad 7/8/9] not work?

If you can't do this in actual tempo text a plain system text style should work.
