Trommelfont

Trommelfont is a font like Wingdings which allows users to type in a word processor (like Word) to produce snare drum scores in the Swiss notation style. I would love to use Sibelius to create drum scores that look like this. Please take a look at the attachment, which someone made to request these ...

Non-standard rehearsal marks

Hello,
I'm rewriting a part for a piece which has letters as rehearsal marks. At some point, rehearsal marks were added between C and D, so the piece now has rehearsal marks C, C1, and C2. How can I add these?

Thanks.

Somehow accents continue to appear in the wrong place. Any reason why that you can think of?

I have a nice MIDI controller keyboard, but at the moment, most of the writing I'm doing is for drums, and I'd rather not put an 88 key instrument on my desk when I only need six inputs. Do you have any knowledge of inexpensive hardware that could do the job without taking up my entire desk? Perhaps...

When typing in new notes, I type as if the drums correspond to the treble clef. This works fine. There is one annoyance. When I press E (for this instrument), I always mean the top space, never the line on the bottom of the staff. Sibelius just picks whichever of the two Es is closer to the prior no...

With note stems set to down, it would make sense for accents to appear above the noteheads (imho), but instead, they appear below. I can select the accent, press x, and have it flip to the other side, but is there a way to change the default so that the accent appears above on its own?

Phrasing and measure placement

I'm writing drum parts to some music which is in four bar phrases. I think it would be easier for players to see the phrase structure if I could have exactly four bars to a line. Is there a way to easily do this? The first line currently shows five bars, so the adjustment would be minor. I could ind...

Ledger lines for marching tenors

I'm writing out some parts for a tenor lines that uses six-drum sets. I would like to put notes for the highest drum just above one ledger line, but when I write the part into Sibelius, no ledger line appears. Is there a setting to toggle this on and off? I can make the note appear in the correct pl...

Still curious, though, is there a way to make it sound like a buzz?
