Re: embellishments

I think you're going to have to fudge this. Inputting the two semiquaver grace notes is simple enough, but you'll have to move them horizontally into the correct position and no doubt lengthen the bar and shift the preceding crotchet to the left. And then finish off with a non-magnetic slur. Quite a...

Re: Cannot "Make Into Page"

Answered on the official forum by Jeremy Hughes and Robin Walker - two of the resident experts there.

I don't think we can add anything - I can't, that leaves the other two responders on here!

Re: Short questions

That is correct - it's a non-destructive change. So you simply work with the new score and then save it with the same name as the old one - or a new one if you want a backup with the old note values.

Re: Sibelius reactivation failed

You can't reactivate Sibelius 7 on line any more. And you've clearly used the two activations allowed - one because you had to reset your laptop without deactivating Sibelius - which you can't do on line anyway! You'll have to create a case with Avid, asking them to reset your seat count and then fo...

Re: Chord Symbol Spacing

Firstly, I'd recommend placing chord symbols above the treble staff rather than between staves, where they can interfere with lyrics, dynamic markings, low or high notes, articulations and so on. You may have a good reason for placing them there, of course. I would never do so! :) You can opt to lef...

Re: sibelius and au plugins

For the moment, why not move all the Izotope plugins into a new folder that Sibelius will not look in?

Re: Layout issue

Looking at the system breaks and page breaks that you have put in, I'm not surprised it looks like that, especially the middle page. Further to Mike's suggestion, I'd be inclined to unlock the format for the entire movement and get Sibelius to reflow the music itself. Then use that as the starting p...

Re: Sibelius Ignoring Sharp/Flat/Natural

That's probably the problem, then. You're presumably on the latest combo of O/S (10.15 ?)and CPU which older versions of Sibelius won't play nicely with.

I think you'll have to upgrade to the latest version of Sibelius Ultimate.

Mac or Windows? If Mac, which O/S. Your Sibelius version may not work correctly with later Mac versions.

Re: Abbreviated Tuplets

Input 4 dotted crotchets. Go to keypad 3, select all four notes and click the single tremolo 'key' - or press 1 on a proper numeric keypad. Then add the numerals as required. I'm sure you already know, but a lot of people will not be familiar with abbreviated tuplets. I've been playing for almost 60...

Re: Buying a keyboard for Sibelius

If you're thinking of saving time by playing things in 'live', you'll find that there's always a lot of tidying up to do - and sometimes an awful lot. You'll need an 88 note keyboard to play in piano scores, you might just get away with 76, but 61 won't cut it. If you're thinking of using the keypad...

Re: Midi files not displaying chord names-Yamaha

Sib 6.2 is not compatible with newer Mac operating systems. All sorts of things crop up, this may be one of them.
