WHY IS THIS HAPPENING?

Why is this happening? The slash marks in the measure are right on the beat. The cued in quarter notes on beats 1 and 2, above the slash marks in the measures, are not exactly over the slash marks and they should be. They appear to be on the "and" of beats 1 and 2. Also, the two eight notes on beat ...

[attachment=0]Screen Shot 2018-10-09 at 1.14.24 PM.png[/attachment]Well, I apparently was wrong, Sibelius didn't correct itself. The cued in notes are being squished together. It's not happening in all the measures just certain ones and I don't know why. Here is the screen shot of the problem.

Re: Posting A Picture?

Well, don't understand why, but the problem cleared itself up. This is the corrected screen shot:[attachment=0]Screen Shot 2018-10-08 at 4.18.14 PM.png[/attachment] When I first wrote this measure the eighth notes were very close together and now they're fine. Maybe Sibelius just had to take a littl...

Posting A Picture?

Would it be easier if I posted a picture of what the problem is rather than explaining it here? If someone can explain to me how to do that I would appreciate it.
Thanks.

CANNOT OPEN SCORE

I'm trying to open a score that I created earlier this year and I'm getting an error message saying: "There was an error opening this score. This score was created with a newer version of Sibelius. You need to update Sibelius to open it." I got this version this year which is version 8.4.2. and I'm ...

Re: PROBLEM WRITING DRUM PARTS

If you're writing professional drum parts on a score I don't see how you can not do it properly without using voices. You can't put a quarter note one the first beat of a measure and right underneath that note put an eight rest. You have to use voices....I'm pretty sure and stem direction is importa...

PROBLEM WRITING DRUM PARTS

Actually I don't have a problem writing drum parts on a score. The problem is the stems of the drum part. What I usually do is write the snare drum in first using it as "voice one" and the bass drum as "voice two". The problem is after I write the snare part and direct the stems to point upward, whe...

Converting PDF score to Sibelius?

Is it possible to convert a PDF score back to Sibelius? I originally wrote this score in Sibelius and for some reason I lose it, but I found a PDF score of it.
Thanks.

Re: Lost Sound

Found the problem. The midi thru box got unchecked some how. Put a check mark back and all the sound is back.

Lost Sound

Don't know what happened. No sound when inputing notes. When I play my keyboard I should hear the sound of the piano or any other instrument I choose in the score. I can input notes from my keyboard or computer keyboard and they enter Sibelius fine and when I hit play, they play back. Help. Thanks.

Re: Changing a Chord.

I'm not concerned about the appearance of the chord I'm just concerned about the name of it. I checked out the Legacy Chords in reference and couldn't get it to work, at least that's how it seemed. The chord I'm trying to name is a Bb7b5+7. The last 7 is the major 7th of the chord. Sibelius named it...

Changing a Chord.

I wrote a chord in Sibelius and it's not accepting it. It's giving me it's own version of the chord which I don't like. How do I write in my own chord and have Sibelius accept and keep it?
Thanks.

Creating A Piano Conductor Part

When writing arrangements for singers it's always a good idea to create a piano conductor part. You can alway see what instruments are playing and cue then in if you have to. Does anyone know how to create one? I looked in the manual and it says nothing about it. I checked out YouTube and it didn't ...
