Re: Export from Photoscore/Import into Sibelius causes key signature to change

Photoscore does not eliminate your role as proofreader! :D PS can put incorrect key and time changes into a scanned score (even from a pdf) and you should very carefully check the start of every system for spurious key changes. I get caught out by this quite a lot. The change between 2 sharps/flats...

Re: Export from Photoscore/Import into Sibelius causes key signature to change

You have to make absolutely sure that the key signs are correct throughout the score BEFORE you send to sibelius. If necessary, force the key change in PS at the start of the 2nd movement. Mike Thank you for your comments. I have discovered that at the very end of the first movement, there was no k...

Re: bar line numbers stop after second time repeat section

Your repeat structure is broken. You have used a continuation 1st time barline instead of the closed hook that is already built-in to sibelius. In the snippet you posted, there is also no indication if the repeat is started correctly. For instance, if there should be a : ||: type repeat bar and you...

bar line numbers stop after second time repeat section

I have a composition in Sibelius 8.1.1 where there is a repeat section (first and second times). Bar numbers are displayed up to the first repeat barline, but not after. Besides having no bar numbers after this point, shortcuts like 'y' to 'Move Playback Line to Selection' also do not work after the...

Flute trills or staccatos but no trill or staccato indicated

In some parts of my composition, the flute part starts to trill when there is no trill indicated, and in other parts, the flute staccatos when a slur is indicated. To track down this problem, I have done the following: 1) Changed the Audio engine, but this made no difference. 2) Deleted the whole ba...

Sibelius Page layout a mess after adding more instruments to

Sibelius Page layout a mess after adding more instruments to score. I have often wondered how best to space ledger lines if you intend to add more instruments to a score. I haven't yet figured it out, and have frequently made a mess of trying to space instrument to make room for more instruments. At...
