no Flip / X on Sibelius First 2020.1?

Post by DoYouLikeHam » Sat Mar 14, 2020 9:53 pm

Hi- New to Sibelius.
I have 2020.1 installed, but happened to stumble across the 2018.1 reference guide http://resources.avid.com/SupportFiles/ ... _Guide.pdf

In there, it indicates Home > Edit > Flip and shortcut X.. though I can't find this in the 2020.1 application version.
Did they remove this basic capability from the First version?

Sibelius| First is a totally crippled and limited version - and it's free. You can't expect anything like full functionality. Even some of the most basic functions are missing.
Sib 6.2, 7.5 and 2020.1, Windows 10, 32GB RAM, 8TB 7200RPM Storage, 2TB SSD, Note Performer 3.1, EWQLSO, EWQLSC, Harmony Assistant and some others.

Seems odd that they would remove such a function between First 2018.1 and 2020.1.

Hmmm... seems even the full version isn't all that it's meant to be. Got a chuckle out of this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dKx1wnXClcI.

Heading over to Dorico for now.

I don't know if you remember the kerfuffle about the double name changes that happened? I no longer know what to expect from Avid.

I'm brand new to Sibelius.. saw a bit of a reference to that in that video I think... but unaware of the details myself.
