Re: Cross stave spread chords

This is one of a number of cross staff situations that sibelius handles badly. There is no workaround that I know of.

[Shift][right arrow] - for some reason it selects only first 2 notes, not all.

Re: Selecting notes and time slots

If you add [ctrl/cmd] to [shift][right arrow], it will select the rest of the bar. There is nothing in-between.

Re: Selecting notes and time slots

Re: Sibelius printouts not correctly centred

I thought most people would use [alt]-click where convenient. But of course, nobody reads the manual any more. It's too difficult for them. Although I didn't get sibelius until version 3, I do remember the Acorn version. At the time my school were thinking of kitting out the it dept with acorn machi...

Re: "X" doesn't work

Rt-click works in an empty part of the page. From that menu choose time sig. The boxes for rewrite and allow cautionary are immediately below the time sigs.
No, it doesn't. You have to put them in again.

Re: "X" doesn't work

It is best to use the old method of entering keys/time signatures. Use the rt-click menu (unless you have already changed the behaviour of the shortcuts to show the dialogs).

Re: Sibelius printouts not correctly centred

There is no phone support to Avid. It's quicker and easier to use the official avid community board. In any case, they already know about this issue and have corrected it in the latest update 2024.3.1.

Re: Deleting triplets

Try Renotate performance. That might help. Don't know if it handles tuplets, though.

Re: "X" doesn't work

Select bar. Reset design, reset position, select just the semiquavers press x. It works erratically. Beginning to wonder if this is a bug...
