Re: How to make playhead reset? Mouse entry? Soundfonts?

how can I set playback so that the playhead automatically goes back to the beginning of the track or to the beginning of the measure I'm working on? If you don't want to use the little transport window, then: To start from a particular place: click on (for instance) the first note of the measure an...

Re: Sibelius 6 Educational

Is Sibelius 6 Professional exactly the same as Sibelius 6 Educational? There are three Sibelius products: Sibelius Student (cut-down version, will work well on its own, but particularly useful for students who have access to the full version of Sibelius at school or college). Available in the UK an...

Kontakt Player 2 isn't included with Sibelius 6, but if you previously had Sibelius 5 you can use that copy within Sibelius 6.

It is also included free with some sound libraries.

Re: Text and Dictionary

Is there a visual option to activate that indicates if the text exists in Sibelius dictionary ? In Sibelius 5 or 6 Play > Dictionary (or equivalent in your language) will show the dictionary and you can look up words there. But also you can right click (or Mac equivalent) to see a list of words, an...

Re: Red text in score scanned and exported to Sibelius 6.

How do I convert red text to black? It's red because Sibelius thinks it's out of range for the instrument. You can either edit the instrument ranges (but you'd have to do this for every instrument that shows the problem) or just change the colour settings with View > Note colors . But make sure you...

Notes within a chord already have standard shortcuts. You can see these whenever you select actions from the menu.

Re: Instrument sounds in Sibelius 6 demo

I'd like to double check that the instrument sounds that come with Sibelius 6 aren't enabled in the demo. I think that the demo will use your computer's inbuilt sounds (DLS or Microsoft Wavetable Synth). Sibelius Essentials is a BIG file and isn't available for the demo. If you have VSTi devices on...

. . . the low D notes show up in red i.e. out of range . . . Sibelius First doesn't allow for other tunings, and so has the out-of-range warning fixedas the bottom E. It's only a warning, and shouldn't affect the score — if the notes sound, then they aren't really out of range. . . .I can't seem to...

Re: altered guitar tuning in Sibelius First?

Is it possible to define non-standard guitar (or bass) tunings in Sibelius First? . . My impression is that the only way to use non-standard tunings in Sibelius First is to get someone with the full version of Sibelius to send you a score containing an instrument with that tuning.
