Chord Diagrams

Postby mfbrin » Sun Aug 19, 2018 6:32 am

I am using Sibelius First on Windows. I have 2 questions about Chord Diagrams:
1. I play Plectrum 4-string banjo and it is tuned as CGBD. Is there a way to change the chord diagram to have 4 strings, and tuned according to my instrument. I could not find how to change the tuning, nor how to edit the chord diagrams.
2. Is it possible to display just the chord above the note, and not the chord diagram?
Thank you.

In short, no. Custom tunings are only available in Sib Ultimate. It's a case of "You get what you pay for and you pay for what you get!" Sib First is extremely basic.

But I would think that you can still get the chord name instead of the diagram. It might be next to the diagram icon in the ribbon. Otherwise you'll need to check the manual.
