Re: Single-figure time signatures

I don't think there is an easier way. The Time signature glyphs are characters in the common symbols font which is used for clefs and other items such as time sigs. It's not easy to edit these independantly as they are hard wired into the program. The best I can offer is to use the Special Time Sign...

Re: help with installing plugin

If you don't have Sibelius ULTIMATE, you can't install your own plugins. You are limited to the built-ing shipping ones.

Re: Unable to get plugins

If you have only Sibelius or Sibelius|First, then you cannot use external plugins. That's the bottom line and I'm afraid there's no getting round it other than to buy the full version or take out a subscription (not recommended). Have you tried Musescore? That may well let you do this without having...

Re: Unable to get plugins

So, voices. Can you use voices in yourversionofsib? Put upstem note in voice 1 and downstem note in voice 2. As long as they are the same length of note there should be no issue! If you don't want both notes to play then give the voice 2 note either notehead 9 or set play on pass to off.

You have my total sympathy and understanding. Complain to Avid. They are the company who own sibelius. You can do that here: https://www.sibelius.com/cgi-bin/helpce ... &groupid=3

Re: weird seperated staves from xml

MuseScore is much better than Sib at handling xml files. The issue is too deep to bother exploring, other than to say that it has always been like this. It is one of the things that annoy me about Avid. Their teams are wasting resources piffying about with iPads instead of fixing bugs that have been...

Re: weird seperated staves from xml

This is a common problem with imports from xml and photoscore. You don't say if you're on Win or MacOS. The following instruction are for win. Try the following: 1. Select the whole score and press [ctrl][shift]n followed by [ctrl][shift]p 2. If this fails download/install the plugin "Gap before bar...

Re: Pick-up bar in Sib 6

You must delete any other folders you created called plugins and and plg files that you copied or moved to directories other than the one I showed you. If you don't, you run the risk of Sibelius becoming very confused (not difficult, I know). The folder tree I gave you is the "User Editable Files" f...

Re: Pick-up bar in Sib 6

If you're using Sib 6, then the plugin folder will be inside a folder called Sibelius 6. You will need to unzip the file you downloaded and copy the plg file to C:\Users\[your user name]\AppData\Roaming\Sibelius Software\Sibelius 6\Plugins If the Plugins folder doesn't exist you will need to create ...

Re: Pick-up bar in Sib 6

In Sib6, you can still have a pickup bar at the start - if you know you're going to have one - by using the time sig dialog when you create a new file. pickup bar when creating score.png Adding one afterwards is tricky and sib 6 doesn't move the system text. Later versions of Sib do. However, there ...

One of many! This is one reason why I am so annoyed with them over the blessed iPad development. There are so many of these bugs that have been hanging around for decades!

Re: Behringer UMC22 sound card issue

Are you using Sibelius or Sibelius Ultimate? You can't do any serious work on plain Sibelius. If you are trying to input notes directly from your keyboard (Flexi-Time) then I don't know whether Sibelius will do that. Sibelius Ultimate WILL do it, but the results usually need considerable editing. It...

Re: Unable to use Sibelius

Check whether the Sib|First licence is still active. If it is, deactivate it and then activate the proper licence.
