Thank you for upgrading to Sibelius 5. We are sure that you will find this major upgrade faster, smarter and easier than ever before. With the new Ideas feature, you can capture, organize, retrieve, and re-use every melody, motive or other musical material you come up with, putting it all at your fingertips. Panorama displays your score on a single continuous system on an infinitelywide page, allowing you to let your creativity flow without worrying about page layout. With a new high-quality sound library and the ability to use any virtual instrument or effect seamlessly within Sibelius, you can hear your score played back more realistically than ever before. You can make instrumental cues for your parts in moments, change instruments anywhere along a staff, create title and other blank pages with a single click and thats only the beginning! This booklet tells you how to install your new version of Sibelius and summarizes all of the improvements. Refer to Sibelius Reference (see below) to get full details of how to use the new features. We strongly recommend that you read this booklet in its entirety before you use your upgrade. At the very least, you must follow the upgrade instructions on the next few pages.
Sibelius 5s documentation is split into two: the Handbook, which tells new users how to install the software and introduces them to its basic features; and Reference, which explains every feature of the program in detail. You dont need the Sibelius 5 Handbook so it isnt included with this upgrade. Reference is available on-screen from within Sibelius 5: simply choose Help > Sibelius Reference (shortcut F1 or X?), and it will open in Adobe Reader (Windows) or Preview (Mac). Reference is also available as an optional printed book. If you would like to buy one, please visit www.sibelius.com/buy for more information. Here are the main additions and changes to Sibelius Reference since Sibelius 4:
* 3. Text and 7. Files have been reorganized, with a larger number of shorter topics, to make it
easier to find specific help * 5.4 Dynamic parts has also been moved to a new chapter, 6. Parts, and split into shorter topics * All the new features and improvements either have new topics or substantially revised existing topics, and you will see directions to these topics at the appropriate points in this booklet.
In your upgrade pack
In addition to this booklet, check that you have received all of the following items:
* Sibelius 5 DVD-ROM * Upgrade Code (or codes, if you have more than one Sibelius copy with different serial numbers),
which will be printed on a separate sheet of paper * Latest information and technical help sheet * Reference book (if you opted to purchase it along with your upgrade).
Upgrading on Windows
If you are installing your upgrade onto the same computer as your previous version of Sibelius:
* Do not uninstall your previous version of Sibelius before installing the upgrade * Make sure that the copy of Sibelius you wish to upgrade is registered (and for Sibelius 2.x and
Sibelius 1.x, does not have its saving feature transferred to another computer). You can upgrade an unregistered copy of Sibelius, but it will still be unregistered after the upgrade. If you are installing your upgrade onto a different computer than your previous version of Sibelius:
* If you are upgrading from Sibelius 3 or Sibelius 4, run your previous version of Sibelius on your old computer and choose Help > Unregister Sibelius to unregister Sibelius over the Internet
before installing Sibelius 5 on your new computer * If you are upgrading from Sibelius 2 or Sibelius 1.4, uninstall your previous version of Sibelius from your old computer before installing Sibelius 5 on your new computer see Uninstalling older versions of Sibelius on page 14. Whichever version of Sibelius you are upgrading from, if you are installing Sibelius 5 on a new computer, you do not need to install your previous version of Sibelius on your new computer in order to install your upgrade.
Minimum requirements for Sibelius 5 alone: Windows XP SP2 or Windows Vista, 512MB+ RAM, 350MB hard disk space, DVD-ROM drive Additional recommendations for using Sibelius Sounds Essentials and Kontakt Player 2, especially for scores with many instruments: 1GB+ total RAM, 3.5GB total hard disk space, ASIO-compatible soundcard You can use Sibelius Sounds Essentials if your computer doesnt meet the recommended requirements, but you may find that you cannot use as many sounds simultaneously. You must be running at least Windows XP Service Pack 2 to install and run Sibelius 5. If you have Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows 2000 or Windows NT 4.x, you need to purchase an upgrade to a more recent version of the Windows operating system.
How to determine if you are running Windows XP Service Pack 2
If you have Windows XP but are unsure whether or not you have Windows XP Service Pack 2:
* Click the Start button, then choose Run. * Type winver in the Open box, and hit Return (on the main keyboard)
* You will see a simple window, like this:
You should see Service Pack 2 at the end of the second line of text. If you dont, then you need to update to Service Pack 2. The simplest way of doing this is to download it automatically by choosing Windows Update from the Start menu. If the computer on which you want to run Sibelius isnt connected to the Internet, you can obtain Windows XP Service Pack 2 on CD-ROM or via a special download that can be burned to CD and deployed on another computer. See http:// www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/sp2/default.mspx for more details.
Sibelius 1.x users
If you are installing your upgrade onto the same computer as your previous version of Sibelius, check that your previous version of Sibelius is 1.2 or later. To do this, run Sibelius, then choose Help > About Sibelius. The version number is shown in the bottom right-hand corner of the window that appears. Important: If you are running a version of Sibelius earlier than 1.2:
* Quit Sibelius, if it is running * Insert your Sibelius 5 DVD-ROM; after a few moments, a menu will appear. Click Browse this *
* * * *
DVD. A Windows Explorer window will appear, showing you the contents of the DVD-ROM. Doubleclick the Update Sibelius 1.x to 1.4 folder, and finally double-click the Update Sibelius (English) icon to update your existing version of Sibelius to 1.4. Follow the instructions on-screen; you may be prompted to restart your computer. If so, wait for your computer to restart. Now run Sibelius again to check that the update has been successful. It is very important that you run Sibelius after you update it! The splash screen should say Version 1.4. If you missed the splash screen, check the version again from Help > About Sibelius. Quit Sibelius again.
* Now things flash and whizz across the screen as Sibelius Sounds Essentials is installed. You may
notice that the Time remaining read-out says that the installation will be finished in 0 seconds for quite some time this is normal. Just wait patiently while the library is installed; it may take several minutes. * You will eventually be told that Sibelius Sounds Essentials has been installed successfully. Click Finish.
You should now install the latest version of Scorch, the free web browser plug-in for viewing, playing, transposing and printing Sibelius scores on the Internet:
* * * * * *
Install Scorch in that window to begin. If the window isnt visible, re-insert your Sibelius 5 DVD-ROM, and it will appear after a few seconds. After a few moments, a window appears that says Welcome to the Sibelius Scorch Setup Wizard. Click Next. You are given the opportunity to read the Scorch license agreement. Read it, click the I Agree radio button, then click Next. You are prompted to choose an installation folder for Scorch. Again, simply click Next. It tells you youre now ready to install Scorch. Click Next. Things flash and whizz across the screen as Scorch is installed. This only takes a few moments. When the installer has completed, click Close.
Installing PhotoScore Lite
Unless you have purchased PhotoScore Ultimate along with your upgrade or already have PhotoScore Ultimate (or an earlier version of PhotoScore Professional) installed, you should now install the latest version of PhotoScore Lite from your Sibelius 5 DVD-ROM:
Install PhotoScore Lite in that window to begin. If the window isnt visible, re-insert your Sibelius 5 DVD-ROM, and it will appear after a few seconds. If your screen resolution is set to smaller than 1024 x 768, a message will pop up recommending you increase it. Just click OK. Click Next to see the license agreement for PhotoScore Lite. Read it and click Next Youre asked to fill in a few details: type in your Name; the Product ID field is filled in for you. When youve filled in the form, click Next. PhotoScore Lite tells you where it will be installed; again, you can change this if you have strong feelings about it. Otherwise, click Next. Click Next once more and PhotoScore Lite will be installed, then click Finish.

Installation Most of these old folders wont exist if you are upgrading from Sibelius 1, so you wont have to copy anything from them. Whichever version youre upgrading from, note that:
* Due to changes in ManuScript, plug-ins you have created or edited yourself may no longer work
in Sibelius 5; consult the ManuScript documentation in the Extras folder for more details. * Due to changes in sound sets, sound sets created in any previous version of Sibelius will not work in Sibelius 5. * To take advantage of many of Sibelius 5s new features, you will need to import one of the new Sibelius 5 house styles into your existing scores and manuscript papers, or else recreate your own manuscript papers from scratch in Sibelius 5.
Uninstalling older versions of Sibelius
Note that your previous copy of Sibelius 1.x, 2.x, 3.x or 4.x will still be on your computer but will no longer be registered, so we recommend that you uninstall it. To uninstall Sibelius, go to Start > Settings > Control Panel, and double-click Add/Remove Programs (Windows XP) or Programs and Features (Windows Vista). You should see Sibelius, Sibelius 2, Sibelius 3 or Sibelius 4, then Sibelius 5, one after the other in the list select the old version and then click Change/Remove (Windows XP) or Uninstall (Windows Vista). Make sure you do not select Sibelius 5 as this will delete the new version. Then follow the instructions on the screen to uninstall the old version.
Upgrading on Mac
before installing Sibelius 5 on your new computer * If you are upgrading from Sibelius 2 or Sibelius 1.4, uninstall your previous version of Sibelius from your old computer before installing Sibelius 5 on your new computer see Uninstalling older versions of Sibelius on page 20. Whichever version of Sibelius you are upgrading from, if you are installing Sibelius 5 on a new computer, you do not need to install your previous version of Sibelius on your new computer in order to install your upgrade.
Sibelius 5 is a Universal application, which means that it runs on both older Macs with PowerPC processors and new Macs with Intel processors. Minimum requirements for Sibelius 5 alone: Mac OS X 10.4 or later, 512MB+ RAM, 350MB hard disk space, DVD-ROM drive Additional recommendations for using Sibelius Sounds Essentials and Kontakt Player 2, especially for scores with many instruments: G5 or Intel processor, 1GB+ total RAM, 3.5GB total hard disk space You can use Sibelius Sounds Essentials if your computer doesnt meet the recommended requirements, but you may find that you cannot use as many sounds simultaneously. If you are running a version of Mac OS X earlier than Mac OS X 10.4, you cannot install and run Sibelius. You may want to upgrade Mac OS X now, although this normally incurs an upgrade fee. See www.apple.com for details. It is recommended that you are running the most up-to-date version of Mac OS X to use Sibelius. Choose the Software Update pane from System Preferences to check that you are using the latest version.
How to determine if you are running Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger or later
Choose About This Mac from the Apple menu. You will see a simple window, like this:
Just below the large text that reads Mac OS X you will see text that reads something like Version 10.4.9. Provided the first part of this number is 10.4 or greater, you are running Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger or a newer version of Mac OS X, and you can install and run Sibelius 5.
If you have more than one copy of Sibelius using the same serial number, such as a 5-pack, second registration or laptop copy, simply follow the same upgrading instructions on each computer, using the same Upgrade Code. If you have more than one Sibelius serial number (e.g. two 5-packs), follow the upgrading instructions on each computer, using the Upgrade Code that applies to the Sibelius serial number used on that computer. The Upgrade Code included in each upgrade pack says which serial number it applies to. If youre not sure which serial number is used on which computer, dont worry Sibelius tells you when it asks for the Upgrade Code. If you have a Sibelius network license, please read the separate Installing and registering network site licenses booklet enclosed in the upgrade box.
Upgrading existing scores
When you first open a score that was last saved in an earlier version of Sibelius in Sibelius 5, the Update Score dialog appears, as shown on the left. This dialog offers you the chance to switch on options in your score that will improve its appearance or make new features available. If you click Cancel, the file will not be opened; if you click OK, the file will be opened with the options chosen applied to it. The three options on the main dialog will not affect the appearance of your score:
* Create dynamic parts determines whether or not to create a default set of dynamic parts in
your score. If your score already has parts (because you created it in Sibelius 4), then this option will be disabled. * Play repeats determines whether Sibelius should pay attention to any repeat barlines in the score. Normally this checkbox will be disabled, since the option has been switched on by default in all but the earliest versions of Sibelius, but if it is enabled, you should switch it on to ensure correct playback and display of bar numbers in the score. * Use same sounds as previous version (where possible) allows you to choose whether Sibelius should attempt to retain the same sound for each staff in your score as was used to play it back in whatever previous version of Sibelius it was last saved in. This option will only take effect if you have Sibelius 5-compatible sound sets installed for the devices you were using when you last saved the score. See Playback of existing scores below for more information about playback of existing scores. If you want your score to take advantage of other features newer than your score, which might include magnetic slurs and tuplets, Optical beams, Optical ties and Optical spacing, you can click House Style, which shows the dialog shown on the right. All of the options in the House Style dialog will change, and generally improve, the appearance of your score. However, if you switch them on, you will then have to check that none of the changes have had undesirable effects. Options are enabled or disabled depending on the version of Sibelius in which the score was last saved. Sibelius remembers which options you choose each time you use the dialog, so if you know that in general you always want to bring your scores right up-to-date to keep working on them in Sibelius 5, click Use All, which will enable all the options (even any that are not available for the particular score youre opening), and you wont need to visit the House Style dialog again in future. Conversely, if you know you never want Sibe-
Installation lius to change the appearance of your scores when you open them, click Use None, which disables all the options. For further details, b 8.10 Opening files from previous versions in Sibelius Reference.
* Each staff in the score has a staff strip, allowing you to
change the volume, pan, solo/mute, initial sound and playback device of the staff * You can save vertical space by showing group strips instead of individual staff strips. Group strips allow you to adjust the relative volume and pan of all the instruments in the same family (e.g. woodwind, brass, strings), together with soloing and muting whole families with a single click. * Each virtual instrument you are using to play back your score (e.g. Kontakt Player 2, as used by the built-in Sibelius Sounds Essentials library), has its own virtual instrument strip, allowing you to show and hide its window in order to change settings specific to that virtual instrument. You can also route its output to any effects you have in your current playback configuration. 30
* Sibelius 5 has four effects buses, allowing you to load one or more effects (including reverb, cho-
rus, delay, flange, etc.). Each of the four buses has its own effects bus strip, allowing you to show and hide the effects windows in order to change settings specific to each effect. * Finally, the master volume strip allows you to adjust the overall volume of all the virtual instruments used to play back your score. This has no effect on MIDI devices, however. This strip also allows you to show and hide the interfaces of up to four effects loaded into the master insert effects bus. For more information, b 4.3 Mixer in Sibelius Reference.
Better, faster audio files
Even if your computer isnt powerful enough to play a score back in all its glory, Sibelius can now create a perfect, glitch-free audio file of it. And if you have a fast computer, Sibelius 5 creates the audio file faster than real time. For more information, b 8.13 Exporting audio files in Sibelius Reference.
You can now specify exactly how articulations, lines, tremolos and symbols play back for example, to change the loudness of accents, length of staccatos and fermatas (pauses), the speed of tremolos and spread chords, and expressions such as sfz and fp. Hairpins automatically read dynamics to work out how loud or soft they should end up, and sustained notes get continuously louder or softer along the hairpin. Sibelius 5 will even automatically use a dedicated sound sample if your playback device has one, e.g. for marcato trumpet, slurred strings, lifts and falls, or buzz rolls. It tells your playback device which sample to use via keyswitching, MIDI controller values and velocity layers, and these are also exported in MIDI files. But the technicalities are all handled automatically, so you never have to set it up or think about it! Although all the most standard markings are predefined for you, you can now modify exactly what effect they have on playback using Sibeliuss Play > Dictionary dialog. This now has six pages, each dealing with a different kind of item that can affect playback:
For an introduction to ideas, choose Help > Tutorial Videos, then click 07 Ideas.
Whats in an idea
An idea can consist of practically anything you can write in Sibelius. You can select any amount of music from a single note on one staff up to hundreds of bars on any number of staves and capture it as an idea. You can also select other kinds of objects such as lines, symbols, text objects and even imported graphics and capture them as ideas, with or without notes. As well as music, an idea also contains tags. Tags are how you label your ideas using keywords to describe each idea so that you can easily find it later on. This is useful when you have thousands of ideas to sift through! In addition to the tags that you specify, Sibelius automatically tags each idea with other information, including key and time signature, tempo, and so on. You can search for ideas using any of the tags you have chosen yourself or the ones Sibelius adds automatically. You can also assign a specific color to any idea.
The main way of working with ideas is the Ideas window, which you can show and hide by choosing Window > Ideas (shortcut Ctrl+Alt+I or zXI), or by clicking the toolbar button shown on the right.
Ideas The Ideas window has two views, compact and detailed. By default, it opens in compact view, which looks like this:
Type tags here..then choose whether to show ideas from the current Score, the Library, or All Selected idea has a border around it; use 2/3 to move the selection after clicking on one.or click the arrow to see a list.
Capture Idea Copy Paste Edit Delete
Switch to detailed view Add to Library Add to Score Ideas
Edit Idea Info
Try switching between Library, Score and All. When the Library button is switched on, you have access to the more than 2000 built-in ideas. Try scrolling up and down the list. Each idea shows a small preview of the music or other objects contained within it; normally you will see two or three bars of one staff (though ideas can contain any number of bars or instruments). Important tags are shown in the four corners around the notation preview: at the top left, the ideas name; at the top right, the letter L appears if the idea is located in the library rather than the current score; at the bottom left, the time signature of the idea; and at the bottom right, the tempo of the idea. Try clicking on the arrow at the top of the window to see a list of the most common tags. Choose one from the list, and the list below shows only ideas that match the tag you have typed. Click the arrow again to see a list of the most common tags that are used by ideas that use the tag you initially chose. By choosing tags in this way you can quickly narrow the list of ideas down to ones that might be suitable.
If you want to share your ideas with others, there are two ways to achieve this: either save the ideas you want to share to a specific score, and then distribute that score (this is useful for setting projects for students); or export a selection of ideas as an.ideas file that can be imported into someone elses ideas library.
To import ideas into your library, e.g. if you have received an.ideas file from another Sibelius user, switch to the Ideas windows detailed view, then click Import. You are prompted to choose the.ideas file you want to import; click Open and a simple dialog appears, allowing you to specify whether the incoming ideas should be added to the library or to one of the scores you currently have open. 38
b 5.10 Panorama in Sibelius Reference.
Panorama is an alternative way of viewing your score. Instead of being laid out on the screen in pages, exactly as it will be printed out, you can view your score as a single system of music, laid out on an infinitely-wide piece of paper. This kind of view is sometimes called scroll view or galley view in other programs. Using Panorama allows you to concentrate on inputting and editing without thinking about the page layout. Note input in Panorama is also very convenient, particularly if you have more than one system per page in normal view; Panorama eliminates the vertical movement of music from system to system, and so the score only ever moves horizontally. This reduces the disorientation you can sometimes feel when working quickly in normal view.
For an introduction to ideas, choose Help > Tutorial Videos, then click 09 Panorama, Focus on Staves and Properties.
Switching on Panorama
To switch on Panorama, simply choose View > Panorama (shortcut Shift-P), or click the toolbar button shown on the right. When viewing your score like this, Sibelius also does the following:
* Disables the Navigator, because theres only one page * Switches on View > Scroll Bars * Switches on View > Staff Names and Bar Numbers.
To switch off Panorama, simply choose View > Panorama again. If you switch off scroll bars or Staff Names and Bar Numbers while in Panorama, Sibelius only changes the settings for as long as youre in Panorama, but remembers them the next time you use Panorama.
Moving around in Panorama
Working in Panorama is as close as possible to working in normal view; you can use all the same navigation shortcuts (e.g. Home, End, Page Up or 8, Page Down or 9, etc.) and features like zoom. Try the Fit page height zoom level, which is particularly useful as it makes sure that you can see all of the staves on the screen at once. Notice that as you drag the start of the music off the left-hand side of the screen, you will see a useful reminder of the current clef and key signature on each staff, drawn in light blue.
Bar number changes
Create > Other > Bar Number Change has been extended to allow a variety of new advanced options:
* You can now create bar numbers in a variety of formats, including1a, 1b, 1c, 1A, 1B, 1C,
a, b, c and A, B, C * You can add text before or after bar numbers (e.g. 1 new, 2 new, 3 new or alt 1, alt 2, alt 3) * You can create a bar number change that doesnt increase the bar numbering, useful for special cases like splitting a bar around a system break, via the new No bar number (and dont count bar) option. * Sibelius will now correctly display a range of bar numbers under a multirest if the first bar of the multirest contains a bar number change, and ranges of bar numbers under multirests are always positioned below the staff if they are set to be centered. Selecting a passage before creating a bar number change to an alternative format (e.g. 1a, 1b, 1c) will result in Sibelius resetting the bar number format to the original format on the bar following the end of the selection.
New Engraving Rules for bar numbers
All options concerning the appearance and positioning of bar numbers are set on the Bar Numbers page of House Style > Engraving Rules, including the following new options:
* The new Count repeats option allows bar numbering to take repeat structures in a score into
account and display this in a variety of ways * To make bar numbers go below the bottom staff, you now only need to set the Below bottom staff option in the Selected staves list box * You can make bar numbers appear at user-defined intervals (e.g. every 8 bars, every 16 bars) * The new Hide at rehearsal marks option automatically hides bar numbers on barlines where rehearsal marks are present 46
* When bar numbers are set to be centered in the bar, bar number changes are now also centered
in the bar.
Go to Bar
Edit > Go To Bar is now more useful in scores containing multiple songs, movements or pieces with bar numbers reset to 1 at the start of each: if you repeatedly go to the same bar number, it will now select the next bar in the score that has the chosen bar number, allowing you to navigate usefully in scores containing bar number changes.
Though weve added a few new keyboard shortcuts in this upgrade, weve changed only one keyboard shortcut since Sibelius 4: Shift-P is now the shortcut for View > Panorama, and Play > Performance no longer has a keyboard shortcut. If youre upgrading from a version earlier than Sibelius 4, there will be more keyboard shortcut changes to get used to full details are in Appendix C: Keyboard shortcuts on page 76.
There are no significant changes to note input in Sibelius 5. One useful new feature, however, is that if you select a passage before you create a clef, time signature or key signature, Sibelius will automatically restore the original clef, time signature or key signature at the end of the selected passage. It will do this regardless of the length of the passage, so if you typically click in an empty part of a bar (which makes a passage selection of one bar) before you create one of these objects, Sibelius will now automatically restore the original object at the end of the bar, which may not be what you want. If you want to disable the creation of restorative objects at the end of selections of one bar or shorter in length, switch off Restore original item after single-bar selection on the Note Input page of File > Preferences (in the Sibelius menu on Mac). If you are upgrading from Sibelius 2 or 3, there is one further significant change, introduced in Sibelius 4, that you need to know about: space is no longer used for inputting rests. Instead, the 0 key on the numeric keypad is used for inputting rests. This also means:
* In previous versions, hitting 0 on the numeric keypad with one or more notes or rests selected
would toggle the selection between notes and rests.
* In previous versions, hitting space with a note selected would show the note input caret after the
selected note, allowing you to continue note input from that point. * If you are using a notebook (laptop) computer and therefore do not have a numeric keypad on your keyboard, we recommend choosing the Notebook (laptop) features feature set on the Menus and Shortcuts page of File > Preferences, which assigns the numeric keypad functions to the row of number keys on the main keyboard (Windows only). For details of how to make Sibelius 5 behave as closely as possible to Sibelius 3 or Sibelius 2 with regard to note input shortcuts, see http://www.sibelius.com/helpcenter/en/a481. But, of course, we dont recommend this: if at all possible you should learn the new note input shortcuts. For further help with customizing Sibeliuss keyboard shortcuts, b 5.9 Menus and shortcuts in Sibelius Reference.
* Create > Other > Staff Type Change has been removed from Sibelius. To change the staff type of an existing instrument, users should now use Create > Instrument Change to change to an
instrument with the appropriate staff type see Instrument changes on page 44.
* The list of symbols in Create > Symbol now opens at the correct row when the dialog is
reopened, so that you can see the previously selected symbol. 67
* More than 180 new symbols, including early music ornaments, arrows, note clusters, extra con-
ductor symbols, and more see Reprise and other fonts on page 48.
* Word menus (which appear when you right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Mac) during text
input) are now larger by default. You can also now adjust the font size of word menus on the Word Menus page of File > Preferences (in the Sibelius menu on Mac). Text can now be set to be cue-sized by selecting it and hitting the cue-sized button on the Keypad, or switching on the Cue-sized checkbox in the General panel of Properties. Sibelius now includes a new kind of text alongside staff text and system text: blank page text. Blank page text can only be created on blank pages created using special page breaks. The Create > Text submenu has been reorganized, with all lyrics text styles now found in the new Create > Text > Lyrics submenu, and new blank page text styles found in the new Create > Text > Blank Page Text submenu. Text that repeats on multiple pages but which is set not to display on the first page (i.e. the page to which it is attached), such as Header (after first page), now appears on the page to which it is attached, but is always hidden on that first page. This makes it much easier to create this text (since you dont have to have both the page to which the text is attached and the page upon which the text is supposed to appear in view at once). The \$Time\ and \$FileDate\ wildcards now produce time in the correct local format (Mac only).
* Create > Time Signature now has a checkbox option Rewrite bars up to next time signa-
ture, on by default, instead of asking you after you click OK whether you want the following bars to be rewritten. * When creating a time signature with a passage selection, Sibelius automatically creates a second time signature at the end of the selection to revert to the original time signature for you.
* Notes > Transpose now lets you directly choose the key to transpose the music into, as an alter-
native to specifying the transposition in terms of intervals. * New Change key at start option in Notes > Transpose, to automatically add a new key signature at the start of the selection, when transposing a system passage.
Sibelius /Sibelius Student Brief Guide
Setting up Sibelius
1. Sound/playback settings when you first run Sibelius, these will most likely appear. If you want to check what device is playing your sounds, go to Play>Playback Devices, and you can choose a playback configuration. This includes whether you will use Sibelius onboard sounds (not available in the demo version). There is a Default configuration chosen when you start using Sibelius, and this may be the easiest choice at first. Sibelius Student uses your sound card to play back scores. 2. MIDI settings (if you have a MIDI keyboard) these settings are controlled from the Preferences window (Windows users go to: File>Preferences>Input Devices, or Mac users, go to: Sibelius>Preferences>Input Devices). Check that Sibelius can see your MIDI keyboard before you create a song. If you dont have a MIDI keyboard, dont worry: you can still enter notes and playback your songs. MIDI keyboard controllers are optional for all lessons in the book. 3. Screen layout once you start creating a song, there will be choices of how you want the screen to look. You can turn on or off any of the floating windows on the screen, and you can zoom in and out of the score, or turn on PANORAMIC view. See the next page of this guide. 4. Saving scores Please be careful to remember WHERE you save scores in your computers hard drive. You can also SEARCH for a score you might have lost in your hard drive by going to START>Search (windows users), and typing *.sib in the search box that finds ALL the Sibelius files on your hard drive. Mac users, use the Spotlight feature in the top right of your Mac screen to locate files. 5. Windows, Menus and shortcuts Sibelius is just like any other software program: you can open several files at once, just like you can in MS Word or Excel: go to the window menu to see which score youre looking at or working on. Sibelius menus are along the top of the screen. The most important menu is the CREATE menu. Sibelius also uses shortcuts if you prefer not to use your mouse to do things: please refer to later on in this guide, where all the main shortcuts are listed. Common shortcuts (used by every other program) are usually supported by Sibelius, like Control P to print (on Mac this is Apple P or Command P), as well as Control S to save, and so on. Throughout this guide, important shortcuts worth using will be detailed. 6. Tutorial Videos Purchased versions of Sibelius v5 have excellent quick start videos that you can watch before trying anything: youll find these in the Quick Start Dialog box that should open whenever you launch Sibelius, or from the Help Menu in Sibelius. 7. Chat Page/Tech support Go to www.sibelius.com/community to join our chat page and post questions (free, and open 24/7). Technical support is available by calling 2101. 8. Extra help resources This quick start guide and other helpful guides can be downloaded for free by visiting www.sibelius.com/helpcenter/hintsandtips. 9. Training Sibelius USA offers a lot of different training courses to users and prospective users: contact us for more details: 0600.
