Thanks to Bob Zawalich, Kenneth Gaw, Hans-Christoph Wirth, and Tom Curran, 2016 brought us more useful Sibelius plug-ins. Bob summarizes the year in plug-in development along with a list of all plug-ins newly created in the past year.
Some of the most requested bug fixes have finally been addressed in Sibelius 8.5, but there are also a couple of new ones to be aware of, too. Also a new plug-in from Bob Zawalich addresses a bug and improves the process of applying rehearsal marks and double barlines together.
Engraver Jeremy Hughes discovered a better-than-usual way to keep tempo text aligned to time signatures in both the score and parts in Sibelius, and we’ll show you how to do it.
A new plug-in for Sibelius gives users the freedom to create tuplets in any ratio, beyond the limits imposed by default in the software.
Instrument families are typically grouped by joining barlines across staves. Here’s how to customize these groups and restore missing barlines in Sibelius.
Harp pedal diagrams may look forbidding, but you can learn how to read them and place them in your score like a pro in Sibelius, Finale, and MuseScore.
Finale’s nested dialog boxes involve a lot of clicking, but by using shortcuts to dismiss them all at once, you can save yourself a bit of time.
