Sibelius 7.0.2 update now available


Following hot on the heels of last week’s Sibelius 7.0.1 update, we have today made available a further free minor update to Sibelius 7, bringing it to version 7.0.2.

This update fixes a small number of specific bugs, including two that were inadvertently introduced in Sibelius 7.0.1:

  • Sibelius no longer crashes when using the ARIA Player, as used by Garritan sound libraries including Garritan Personal Orchestra 4 (GPO4), Garritan Jazz and Big Band 3 (JABB3) and Garritan Concert and Marching Band 2 (CoMB2).
  • Sibelius now respects the choice of printer made in the File > Print page, instead of always printing to the system default printer.
  • It is once again possible to use characters from regular text (i.e. non-symbol fonts) as symbols in Edit Symbols (Mac only)
  • The leading (line spacing) of multi-line text objects is now consistent between Windows and Mac
  • The on-screen appearance of stretched font characters, e.g. braces on piano and other grand staff instruments, has been improved (Windows only)
You can download Sibelius 7.0.2 here. Updaters are provided that will update either Sibelius 7.0 or Sibelius 7.0.1 to Sibelius 7.0.2, and as before, you can run the updater to update your 30-day trial version of Sibelius 7 if you wish.

    I still can’t input rhythm dots with the , button (European keyboard). Quite annoying. This was the one thing that was most looking forward to getting fixed.

    Anyone else having the same problem after updating?

    1. Daniel Spreadbury

      Yes, sorry about this, Rune. We’ll get this fixed as soon as possible.

    Just updated, and now I can’t seem to get the worksheet creator to work properly. It just keeps searching for materials without finding any.

      How long did you leave it? Try trashing the ‘Worksheet Creator’ folder in /Users/[your username]/Library/Application Support/Avid/Sibelius 7 (Mac) or C:\Users\[your username]\AppData\Roaming\Avid\Sibelius 7 (Windows), then restart Sibelius and let it have another go.

    I am running the Sibelius 7 free 30 day trial [with 15 days to go]. On the start-up dialog box, one options “buy on-line” but it only takes me to a page advertsing upgrade to Sibelius 6, which I already have. Where can I find the price of upgrade to Sibelius 7?

    1. Daniel Spreadbury

      You can find the upgrade on our online store here or you can buy from any of our dealers in the UK via this list.
