Time to say goodbye

I've been answering questions on this forum for many years. I remember when it was busy - often with members who had cracked copies and so couldn't join the official Sibelius Chat Pages. I'm now approaching retirement, in fact I've already retired from playing full, formal concerts. Still teaching, ...

Re: The Sibelius First user guide

Unless you plan to upgrade to Sibelius Ultimate at some point, I'd also suggest switching to Musescore 4. It's free, comes with a great sound library, and it's light years ahead of Sibelius First, which is so cut down it's a joke. Sibelius Artist? Better, but I'd still go for Musescore. And there's ...

Re: Sibelius 2024.6 MIDI

I think you should ask on the official Sibelius forum, not this unofficial one. It does seem that Mac users are suffering with almost every OS update. Avid run and monitor that site and there a lots of people answering questions there - only three of us here - part time! https://www.sibelius.com/cgi...

Re: Problems with getting organ sounds to play back

This is an old unofficial forum. Only three people answering and I can't help you! Not sure it the other two are into organ music? You should try asking at the official site. https://www.sibelius.com/cgi-bin/helpcenter/chat/chat.pl?groupid=3 Give them a lot more information. Exact version of Sibeliu...

Re: Formatting for guitar scores and tab

Arrows are found in the Symbols menu - shortcut is Z.

They can be adjusted in length and direction. You'll have to do a little fakery with the first bar, replacing the note heads with invisible ones and then replacing them with the up arrows.

Re: Chord symbol extension bug?

If you want your chord symbols, standard, exotic, unusual etc, to show as you typed them, use Legacy Chord Symbols. All explained in the Reference.

Re: Sibelius 7.5 will not launch after license reactivation

1) ask on the OFFICIAL Sibelius chat pages, not on this old unofficial site - https://www.sibelius.com/cgi-bin/helpcenter/chat/chat.pl?groupid=3 2) raise a case with Avid support You could always email one of the support staff directly, they're usually pretty helpful.

Re: Guitar Notation for Musical Number

Unless I was writing out a solo for them, I'd just give them the chord symbols and rhythm using slash notation. I'd like to think they'd be smart enough to work with that! You can give them extra info about dynamics, articulations etc if you want, but that will almost certainly be worked out during ...

Re: staff size per page

Yes, create a blank score, make all the adjustments you need and save it as a Manuscript Paper (or whatever they call it these days). That template can be used to start new scores. Alternatively, create the score, make the adjustments and save as a House Style. You can then apply that style to any s...

Re: I have two exported video issues (Sibelius Artist 2024.3.1)

That's great. Ultimate is the only current version worth having. Overkill for me, which is why I'm still on version 7.1.3! Full version, but not so many new 'features'! :)

Re: Can you move or adjust staves in mobile version?

I don't know if any of the three people left answering questions here use the mobile app. I don't so that leaves just 2!

This is an old unofficial site, so try the official one!

Re: grace note spacing

Then I suggest asking on the official Sibelius forum rather than here.

You'll probably want to post the score, or at least part of it to illustrate the issue. A screenshot probably won't be sufficient.

Thanks for the link to the newer forums. I do like the layout of this forum better :roll: 8) The official Sibelius chat pages have probably been around just as long! This one was always the place where users of cracked copies would hang out, as they couldn't use the official place! Over the years, ...

Re: I have two exported video issues (Sibelius Artist 2024.3.1)

1) Artist is a very limited version of Sibelius - it may not be able to do what you want. 2) This is the old, unofficial forum, try the official one: https://www.sibelius.com/cgi-bin/helpcenter/chat/chat.pl?groupid=3 Lots of people on there to give advice, just 3 of us here still answering questions...
