Re: cross-staff

Put the notes in on one staff Select the ones you want to go into the other staff and press [ctrl/cmd][shift][up arrow] to move them up or [ctrl/cmd][shift][down arrow] to move them down.

Rests in the other staff will still be there and may need to be hidden.

Re: Filter Lyrics 1, 2, 3, or 4

As long as you have consistently used the different lyrics types, you can use the advanced filter. It is possible to write a plugin to do this and I am sure there is a plugin already in existance. There is one called Filter text which will analyse your score and find all the different text styles th...

Re: How change spaces between lines in this way?

So, if you used option 2, you will also have to enlarge the symbols used for the notes. If you use option 1, the staves can be large and the notes will adapt to the new size. It looks to me like you really need option 1 set the staff size to 0.5" in the attached. The disadvantage is that this applie...

Re: no Flip / X on Sibelius First 2020.1?

I don't know if you remember the kerfuffle about the double name changes that happened? I no longer know what to expect from Avid.

Re: no Flip / X on Sibelius First 2020.1?

Sibelius| First is a totally crippled and limited version - and it's free. You can't expect anything like full functionality. Even some of the most basic functions are missing.

Re: How change spaces between lines in this way?

There are two ways to do this depending on what you want it for. To just make larger staves use the Inspector. Set the staff size larger in the ribbon (Layout-->Staff Size) and for a smaller staff use the inspector optioins. staff sizes.png If you want to actually increase the gap you will need to d...

Changing the look of the board

Hi guys,

Since I got my new computer, I find reading the small text on the board gives me a migraine. It's a combination of the small textx size and the brightness of the screen. is there any way I can increase the text size and/or lessen the background glare?

Thanks.

Re: Optimize staff spacing

Steps to take: 1, Set "justify staves when" to a higher value than 65% In general this is way too low and causes large gaps between staves and between systems 2. Use reset space above and reset space below followed by Optimize to let sibelius make its best shot. Then tweak. 3. The dotted blue lines...

Re: Weird Bar Line

Select both bar 25s and use Join (Home tab of the ribbon)

If you are still using Sib 6 then you'll probably find it as a plugin (Plugins-->Other-->Merge Bars)

Re: deleting or hiding rests

It should also have highlighted any rests in voice 2.

Can you send me the file? (mike@mike-lyons.co.uk) it's easier to work out the issue rathern than all the 12-hours out of sync back and forth.

Re: Trouble with G-Key at Printing

1st step: check which font is used for system symbols and make sure it is installed properly on your machine. By default it is the font used for common symbols (Opus Std,). Get back to us. 2. Try printing to pdf and see how that turns out and again when you print that pdf to the actual printer. Agai...

Re: Available Instruments

Why don't you create a new instrument based on the existing horn in Bb(No Key), use the new instrument dialog to set it up with a keysign and save it. Then, export a manuscript paper with this instrument in it. Once you have done this once, just use that MSS paper to start your new scores and you wi...
