Re: Larger D.S. Coda signs

For Del Seg and Coda signs I click on the appropriate barline IN THE SCORE then R/C >Text>Tempo, click again and you have blinking vertical line above the barline, R/C again and click on the DelSeg symbol which then appears quite small so you then select the symbol and open the Text tab at top of sc...

Re: TACET Playback

Many Thanks Mike - despite being a very long time user I have not dug deep into all the options of playback, ie the dictionary. I think you have solved my problem. I could reword the instruction to make it 'behave' but TACET is the simplest. I'll see what happens the next time I find an an old chart...

TACET Playback

I am a long time user since v1 and am using the latest version of Sibelius on a Windows10 desktop mainly for big band writing. When I type the instruction on a part or parts - TACET 1st time - on a repeated section, the playback does not play the section on the 2nd time and in fact silences the part...

Re: Chord Symbols in Sib 2019

Thank you andyg, Where or how do I download Legacy Chord? - I had no trouble with my last version of Sib 8.8. This Sib 2019 seems to be a real stuff-up with chord text input. I have spent so much time trying to find the previous chord input style before this latest version of Sibelius, visiting all ...

Re: Space between groups of staves

One of THE most silly default settings since Sibelius was conceived is in Engraving Rules > Staves>Justification = "Justify staves when page is at least" 67% full - this can lead to silly spacing on page 2 - change this to 100%. When editing extracted parts I have learnt to ALWAYS select the whole p...

Chord Symbols in Sib 2019

I have been using Sib on a PC since v1 up to v8.8 until now. On buying a new Windows 10 computer I had to buy the latest version of Sib 2019.9 Ultimate. I write mainly big band and combo charts and there are very few improvements since v7 and some annoyances such as: 1/ I want to add chord symbols i...

Printer Problems

I have been using Sibelius since V1 and I have created my own template for big band extracted parts with 10mm borders all around. I have printed hundreds of charts over the years using a HP 2550L Color Laser printer with no problems. Eventually HP broke down and I bought a new Brother HL-L2305W mono...
