Input the bottom grace note then, while it is still selected, use the appropriate numeral key (not the keypad numbers) to Add Interval.

there doesn't seem to be a way to move a note one half step up - not with the mouse, and not with a key command, if the target note is non-diatonic.. There is a downloadable plug-in which moves notes chromatically, and it can be given its own keyboard shortcut (so you can do it with a keypress). ht...

You can grab an object or a selection of objects and move them wherever you want. What you can't do is drag.

Re: shame shame shame

isn't it ridiculuos that such-a-big-piece-of-software that sibelius is doesn't have built in possibility to loop any selection with just a single mouse click? Sibelius isn't a sequencer. There are plug-ins which allow you to audition a section over and over, but if you really want to work with loop...

Re: Change Tempo in Sibelius 4.15

i also tried adding a metronome mark, but thats only text, it wont speed up anything..!! If it's in the form q = 80 (or whatever, where q = quarter/crotchet) in Metronome or Tempo text style it will alter the basic tempo. Using the tempo slider will then take that as the 'middle' tempo and increase...

Re: Ways to move a note horizontally

If all I want is to change the position of one note, to make a slight change to the rhythm of the melody? Do I have to erase the note and insert a new one for each change I want to try out? When Picasso wanted to shift someone's nose a few centimeters to the left, he had to erase what was there and...

Re: Ways to move a note horizontally

. . . alter the actual position of the note in the timeline - not only offset it's display.... Sorry for the confusion. There are some plug-ins on the Sibelius Downloads page which allow you to insert a note, or a rest, somewhere in a bar. Everything then moves along (and some notes may then fall o...

Re: Ways to move a note horizontally

Are there any simple key commands for this . . . If you drag a note with the mouse or select a note and use Shift+Alt+Left (or right) the note will move. But all the notes around and above will move too. If that's not what you want (i.e. you want to move just one note and none of the others) select...

This was an issue with one of the earlier versions of Sibelius 6 which, I seem to remember, only affected Macs. I have Version 6.2 (actually 6.2.0) which is shown on the splash screen and which I can also see if I click on About Sibelius 6 in Sibelius's Help menu. If you have an earlier version numb...

The level of dynamics can be edited in Play > Dictionary. That way you can have some differences between dynamics without making too great a contrast or straining your ears.

Re: How do I import new accidentals?

I am not sure where to unzip the files . . . Install the files as you would any other file. Once you have done that, you need to decide how to use them. You can use House Styles > Edit Symbols > Music Fonts to add this font. Click on a similar font (e.g. Special Symbols ) then New ; give it a name ...
