Re: Sibelius Not Working in Catalina

Mike, thanks for you quick reply. I understand exactly what you're saying and I just went to Clear Recent Documents. I don't think I should have done that. Now Quick Start is empty so, how do I open my scores? As I said above I would go to File (not File in a score), the one in upper left hand corne...

Sibelius Not Working in Catalina

Well, I just upgraded from Mojave to Catalina OS on my Mac and of course there is a problem. The problem is Sibelius won't open. Well, that's not completely true. Sibelius does in fact open, it's my scores that don't open. Well, that's not completely true either. You know when you open Sibelius the ...

Re: Plugin not working

Mike, as it turns out I met a fellow Sibelius user on youtube and he knew how to find and install the plugin I was looking for. This explanation only has relevance for people who use Sibelius.....I think. I'll explain it here if anyone wants to use this fantastic plugin. Here goes: Open up Sibelius ...

Re: Plugin not working

Mike, thanks for your great response. I understand what you're saying, but don't know quite yet how to go about it since I have a mac. This is gonna take a little bit of time. I'll keep you posted.

Plugin not working

The plugin "Make Pitches Constant Drums" is not going into my version of Sibelius version 8.4.2. I'm getting an error message saying "no available application can open it". When I downloaded it from the AVID site it said it's compatible with version 8x. I'm assuming the 8x means it's compatible with...

Re: Is This Possible?

Mike let me explain it to you this way. If I have a regular song sheet (a piece of paper)I can write anything I want on it with a pen or pencil any place on the sheet....right?. If I want to remember something about a specific measure I can write something with a pen or pencil above that measure or ...

Re: Is This Possible?

OK, got it Mike. Now what I would like to do is paste or drag the slash figures to the upper right hand corner of the page (blank part), Is that possible? I tried and can't seem to do it.

Re: Is This Possible?

Exactly. You nailed it again Mike. Thanks. Sorry Mike I thought I knew this. How do I change the instrument from instrument to no instrument (hidden)?

Re: Not Going To Coda?

Mike, thanks so much for you help. It's working! I didn't have the coda wheel before To Coda and also at the Coda. I did check the Repeats and it was set up like yours, so that was OK. Again thanks for your help, I appreciate it. Check out my other post about putting rhythm figures at the top of a p...

Re: Not Going To Coda?

Mike can you explain a little better as to what you mean "using symbols instead of text for the coda wheels".
I just changed the "symbol coda wheel" to text "To Coda" and it's still not going to the Coda. Thanks. By the way does this have anything to do with the "Inspector"?

Not Going To Coda?

I have D.S. al Coda at the end of my song and the music does indeed go back to the "Sign" and continues on to where it says "To Coda and I have the Coda sign there too", but it does not go to the coda, it just continues on in the song like nothing was there. How do I get it to go to the Coda? I crea...

Is This Possible?

I want to put rhythmical figures at the top of a page as a reference. No staff, just slash marks, like 1/8 or 1/4 notes on the blank part of the paper. Is this possible? Thanks.

Quantize Question

After I record something in Sib. I go to Renotate Performance (quantizing). I used to be able to choose the 1/8 note from the drop down menu. Something changed. The two choices I have now are 1/32 or 1/16. In order to get to the 1/8 note choice, I have to choose 1/16 because the 1/8 choice is not av...

Re: Is This Possible?

I just figured this out if anyone is interested. I bit the bullet and actually tried reading the manual. First I started reading about Live Tempo which is actually setting the tempo by tapping it in. You can also put in ritards and other things like accelerando. But, what I did was using the metrono...
