Staff selection

Postby ThomaStudios » Sun Dec 23, 2018 10:16 pm

A small annoyance has occurred with Sibelius 6. I used to be able to select multiple staves via the shift-up/down arrows. Suddenly it no longer works, forcing me to adjust staff positions individually, a major PITA with multiple systems I am currently editing. Can anyone shed any light on this? Corrupted prefs, or am I just missing something.

What is your OS? I have heard of such things hapening on Macs, but not Windows.

macOS 10.12.x Sierra.

For the record, this did work a while back, but not on multi-staves like a piano part.

As you're a Mac user, have you restarted your machine recently? I mean a full close down and restart!

After doing this, check that you still have the correct keyboard shortcuts selected in the File-->Preferences.

Oh yea. Many times.

Yup.

for the record, this same anomaly occurs on both of my Macs, a MacPro and MacBook Pro.
