Re: "Make into page" sometimes doesn't work

No, and I haven't heard of the issue before now but try this. Select All Unlock Format Reset Space above Staves This will probably result in something that looks nothing like what you want, so then reformat from scratch. There's no way to tell what you've done to the scores that exhibit this behavio...

Re: Video Export ignores fermatas

Then I'd ask the question on the official Sibelius chat pages rather than this unofficial forum.

Re: Video Export ignores fermatas

What version of Sibelius and what operating system.

If you're on a Mac, using Big Sur, only the latest couple of versions of Sibelius are compatible. Video export issues are one sign of incompatibility with older versions.

Re: Importing Chord Colors in Sibelius

There's another thread about importing colours from XML files. It might depend on the level of Sibelius you have, but it's likely that even Sibelius Ultimate will not do this.

Look up 'Instrument Change' in the reference manual and it will give you more info than I can!

Re: Import Musicxml colour information

First is basically rubbish - I could use better words! The only version worth getting is Sibelius Ultimate. Even the basic Sibelius is so cut down as to make it almost worthless. You could probably do more with the free Musescore 3! However, I'm not sure that even Ultimate will import the colour att...

Re: Sibelius and IRCAM Prepared Piano

Probably not, is the short answer. Sibelius with run with virtual instrument hosts like Kontakt and with some standalone instruments, but I'm not sure that it will work with the two host apps mentioned. In any case, there is no Soundset for it, so you'd have to create one. If you have the ability to...

Re: Chords symbols are not working!?

Are you running an older version of Sibelius and have you upgraded to Big Sur?

If so, you'll have to downgrade your OS or upgrade to the latest version of Sibelius. The only versions that work are the last two 2020 versions, 9 and 12. Nothing before that is compatible.

Re: Suspended chord notation for piano

The notation itself is clear, no problems in the player knowing what to do.

If you're asking how to describe the chord, it's simply an Fsus4, resolving to F.

Re: Movie Syncing Issues

That version of Sibelius is incompatible with Big Sur and video problems are one of the many symptoms.

You have two options:

1) revert back to, and stick with, a previous Mac OS
2) update your version of Sibelius to the current one.

Re: Programming Cardi B

What's written doesn't appear to make musical sense, which is probably why you can't notate it!

Re: Never Had This Problem Before

1) try your keyboard on another app if you have one. If you don't, Musescore is free and quick to install. 2)try a different keyboard. If 1) still shows the problem and 2) doesn't, there's a fault with your keyboard or it might benefit from a 'reset', if it can do that. Turning off and back on isn't...

Re: Playback Line - to move smoothly and NOT in jumps by beats

And as far as I'm aware there has been no moderator intervention for ages. I think the site admin/owner is happy to let the few questions that are posed be answered by the few of us that might know the answers.

Re: Violin left-hand pizz alternating with bowed staccato

Yes, if you give a pizz instruction, it will continue until you give a different instruction. How else will Sibelius know what to do? You could enter a short passage of semiquavers, maybe four of them, and insert the pizz and arco instructions. Then simply copy and paste that section - it should cop...
