Re: Colliding lyrics

Common reason for this is users choosing to put too many bars in a system, and not allowing Sibelius (even with its quirks about text) to flow the music. And I find the default text size a bit large, so I usually simply reduce it, then select all and reset note spacing. Goes without saying that, lik...

Re: INSTALLING ASIO DRIVER IN SIBELIUS 6.2

You can only use an ASIO driver if your audio hardware supports ASIO. If it doesn't, you can't simply install or use an ASIO driver. Not sure if ASIO4ALL works on Mac OS, but even if it does, it's not a universal panacea. I've heard Mac users say that their OS audio handling is fast enough, but I ne...

Re: Set Sibelius to produce numberic result in Advanced Filter?

I'm not aware of any way of making it count, like 'Find' does in, say, a Word document, listing 'x of x items found'. So.... back to basics.

1) eyes
2) brain
3) count

:D

Part of all higher level theory exams, of course, but a pain if there are hundreds of bars.

Re: Incorrect note grouping

'apply beaming': Like I said, you're forcing it to do this.

In your example, what happens if you input logically and let Sibelius beam according to its rules?

Re: Incorrect note grouping

You appear to have forced Sibelius to do this. Here's what Sibelius has just done, with no need to change any settings in the 'Beam Group'. I started the left hand part with the rests and moved along, which seems the natural thing to do! :)

Re: adjust number of staves per page

It sounds like this score may have been imported from another app (or it's been created in Sibelius - very badly!), and that's what caused the problems, as the instructions I gave you should work on a normal score. If nothing's happening, it sounds like the score is not unlocked. I still have a runn...

Re: Numbers in place of instrument name?

You could just highlight Piano, delete it and type in '3.'

Or delete it, move the start of the opening system to the right and type in '3.' in Plain Text.

Re: cross-staff

Mike said Ctrl+SHIFT+arrow, not just Ctrl+arrow. The latter does shift notes by an octave.

Re: Note duration vs. intervals - Mac numeric keyboard

Do you have a proper numeric keypad at the right of your keyboard? If so, it should change note and rest durations (as well as lots of other things depending on what 'page' the keypad is on - selected with Function keys), and the number keys above the letters should add intervals above and below a s...

Re: Chord symbol - augmented with added 9th

Use Legacy Chord Input - full explanation in the Reference. It will let you type in exactly what you want without trying to 'interpret' it.

Re: Sibelius and Spitfire Studio Orchestra Soundset

This is the sort of question that's probably best asked on the official Sibelius chat pages.

It's not something I can help you with and I don't know if the other few people on here who answer questions go this deep into soundset editing.
