You can control how this works in House styles > Engraving Rules > Accidentals. You to choose whether or not to have courtesy accidentals, and, if you have them, the rules for applying them.

Re: Creating vocal accompaniment with Photoscore+Sibelius

I'm wondering how satisfactory the procedure . . . might be . . . Many users find that it's quicker to input the music from scratch than to make all the correction, changes and adjustments usually needed for a PhotoScore scan.

Select the notes you want to be smaller, and click on the Enter key on the second keypad layout (the one with the large/small note symbol).

The answer depends a bit on the sounds you are using, but the MIDI message ~B0,32 in (say) Technique text at the beginning of the scordature staff should work for most devices.

Re: Simplest methods to split chords?

. . . is there any preset and setup combination that I can simply use to separate any track into 3/4/5 part harmony? . The Explode plug-in is the obvious method — perhaps you were using the Explode setting in 'Arrange', which isn't intended to do what you want to do (and it seems absurdly confusing...

Instead of writing the time signature every bar at the beginning of the piece it just have 4/4 + 3/4 This plug-in from the Sibelius plug-ins Download page might help.

If you mean you want to cut out and keep a section of score for future use, save it as an Idea (Edit > Capture Idea, shortcut Shift+I).

See details in Section 5.11 of the Reference.

How do i get the notes to stay on the staff when uploading a midi file? The first thing to do is to insert a treble clef at the beginning of the upper staff. Press ESC a couple of times, then Q then select treble clef and click just o the left at the start of the piece. That will at least bring the...
