Time to switch from Finale yet?

Every few versions or so I check in to see if Sibelius has implemented a couple of features that I use in Finale. I would switch if it could do these:

1. I prefer fingering numbers a precise distance to the left of the
notehead, but with flexibility for the vertical placement. In Finale I can
hold down a key and click a notehead, and the fingering number, as a custom articulation is placed at the vertical position of the click and the exact distance from the notehead (regardless of where I click on the notehead horizontally).

2. I like fingering numbers in which there is a small amount of the
staff line around the number whited out so that the staff line does not continue over the top of the number.

Is it time to switch?

Thanks for the response but I do not see any answer to my specific questions. Does Sibelius have the capabilities that I described in my post?
