Re: Not Going To Coda?

No. Your To Coda text should have a coda wheel ([ctrl]0) at the end and the coda should start with a codawheel before the word coda in a similar way. I find symbols often fail to work and you can resize the text to whatever you want. See attached. Also, check you haven't got a manual repeat structur...

Re: Not Going To Coda?

Without seeing the actual score (not a picture of it) we have no chance of finding out what is wrong.

First guess would be something to do with using symbols instead of text for the coda wheels.

Re: problem with triplets

1. if possible, start the voice 2 input before the triplets
2. If not, use the keypad and select whatever note value you need and click on the 2 below the keypad to start voice 2 entry.

Re: Continue slurs from hidden stave

Both of those new features work very well and the tied-to note works even in 3rd/4th etc time bars.

Re: Can I remove Staff lines / Staves so note names aren't defined?

Is something like the attached what you are looking for?

I created a new staff based on the unnamed treble
Changed the number of lines to 0, messed around with the staff size (made it very large)
Unticked the box for bar rests

Re: Which version supports Tenor Clef?

If you notate tenor voices in tenor clef, you are likely to get some funny looks from your singers!

Men's voices are more usually notated in an 8ve down treble clef (a treble clef with a little 8 below) or in bass clef. Sib first does NOT support this clef.

Re: Quantize Question

Sib's quantization isn't really the same as you have with a DAW.

Rather than try to renotate a performance, why not set the options in flexitime input BEFORE you record? This can greatly reduce the inaccuracy of the 'recording'.

Re: adjust number of staves per page

Just a note - Optimize will do nothing if you haven't reset the space above/below. Also, if this is a file imported from outside sib, then the very first task is to unlock format to get rid of any format from whatever it was before impport (pdf/xml etc)

Just remember to deregister your copy before you upgrade so that you don't run out of 'seats'.

Re: strange behavior of added staff below inst

My suggestion would be that staves have been dragged on top of each other accidentally. Select the section concerned and click reset space above/below and then optimize on the layout tab.

Re: "Add Instruments" window too large on my PC screen

In Windows you can change the DPI settings. Make sure Sib is closed and then right click the sib icon on the desktop. Choose properties and hen compatibility and change the Hi DPI settings to system or system(enhanced).
