Re: Weird Page View Issue

Are you viewing vertical or horizontal spreads? In general, the former still has issues. Also, check in file-->preferences that you have unchecked the appropriate follow settings.

Re: SEGUE Text

It's hard for me trying to remember this from the wilds of Rome and without my machine, but I think you have to position it manually and use the inspector to accurately place it.

Re: SEGUE Text

Yes. As I said, perhaps confusingly, look at your previous second screenshot. You need to change the position so it is no longer page relative but note relative. I can't currently send you images because I'm on holiday in Rome for another week and don't have my computer with me. It would be much eas...

Re: SEGUE Text

K. My next question is " What text style is this using?" You cannot base your text style on something like "composer" or "lyricist". It needs to be something like "plain system text" so you can attach it to a rhythmic position. This example is attached to the page, not to the bar. You need to make i...

Re: SEGUE Text

If you are using a system text style for your segue, so it appears automatically on every part, then you also need to make sure you attach it to the bar correctly. If you have that bar - and only that bar - selected in the score - and it can be a blue box selection - then the text will attach to tha...

Re: Cannot "Make Into Page"

Unfortunately I am on holiday in Rome for the next fortnight and do not have access to sibelius. However if, as andy has said, it has been answered on the official forum by Robin and Jeremy, you can take their answer to the bank.

Re: Short questions

Be sure you are using the correct plugin. There is one that creates a new score, but there is another that copies the new notes to the clipboard so you can paste it.

Re: Short questions

You do know that you can assign the plugins to their own shortcuts?

Re: Sibelius not importing triplets correctly from Midi file

Sibelius is still poor at handling triplets and other tuplets. The only way you can guarantee to get accurate triplets of the type you describe is to make sure the MIDI file is properly quantized and that all other tuplets apart from triplets are disallowed in the MIDI setup dialog. flexitime triple...

Re: Sibelius not playing dynamics correct

I'd complain about this on the official Avid Sibelius forum. It has been a long standing issue with Sibelius that dynamics which play when started from the beginning don't play when starting part way through.

Re: Short questions

A lot depends on the order in which you do things. If you select 8 semiquavers over 2 beats and then press 3, Sibelius thinks you want to convert them into quavers in situ and will do that, overwriting the existing notation. If you want to change the size of a group of notes, use the plugins "copy d...

Re: Layout issue

Hi, You can;t really expect us to diagnose this issue with so little information. We've no idea what your margins are or what your justification settings are. The middle page looks to be too crowded - partly caused by having "keep bars together" forced on all the bars on the top system, Select all t...
