Re: Looking For A Shortcut.

triple click the guitar staff then [ctrl/cmd][down arrow]?

Slash notation is all on the same pitch, so you should be able to move it down all at once, rather than one note at a time.

Re: Multiple Texts in different parts at once

Use a system text style or create one based on plain system text. System text appears on all parts at once, unless hidden(and it can be hidden in individual parts.)

Re: Playback not working with section after 2nd ending

If you post a copy of the music (or email it to me) I can have a look what is wrong. I suspect you have broken the repeat structure - missing repeat barline/incorrect use of 1st/2nd/3rd time brackets or using zymbols instead of repeat text for the dc.

Re: 2 separate questions

OK. Let me have your email address and I'll email it.

I gave up on Kontakt years ago. The best sounds for me are NotePerformer. If you have to use Kontakt, then Kontakt 5 is the best version I know of for Sibelius. even so, it is clunky! (Ça ne marche pas bien)

Re: 2 separate questions

Marc, you do not need to have two scores. Create a part with only the instruments you want to see on it. This part will update if you make changes to the score and will not be visible unless you have the part open. I will PM you with an example score.

Re: Playback ignores tempo text

As I thought, you have used non system text for the opening tempo mark. You need to use tempo text [ctrl/cmd][alt]t (or use the rt-cik menu Text-->Tempo).

Re: fermata stops playback of 2nd note after it, sometimes!

Just a thought, but have you got 'Use same slot for similar instruments' ticked in the File - Preferences - Playback dialog? Try unticking if it is ticked.

2nd thought - Have you turned off all of sib's interpretation features? (Play-->Performance - set all to meccanico.)

Re: Flute trills or staccatos but no trill or staccato indic

There is a known issue with trills.If there is a trill earlier in the part, it is possible for random trills to play in later measures. Try putting a hidden ~nat. after any previous trill which sometimes works.

Re: 2 separate questions

For your first question, select the 2nd cello and press [alt]2 followed by [ctrl/cmd][shift][alt]2. (This should set all notes to voice 2 and then select only the notes and rests and text etc, but not the measures) Then press [ctrl/cmd]c (copy) and select the first bar of the first cello and press [...

Re: Swapping parts

Exchange staff contents works in all versions of Sib since 5. I use it asll the time in Sib 6, 7.5 and 8.6. I've assigned it to a keyboard shortcut [ctrl][shift][alt]e.
