It is not unusual to encounter grace notes at the end of a bar — that is, before the barline. Entering this variety of grace note in Sibelius is a chore, but there is an approach which involves using tuplets to achieve good results.
In Dorico 1.2, you can notate a piece with any time signature displaying as any other time signature. In this tutorial by Florian Kretlow, we’ll illustrate a useful trick that shows how to do just that, by using a piece from the core repertoire as our real-world example.
In Dorico, tuplets can cross barlines easily. Learn how to apply this feature, with an easy tweak, to properly render certain Renaissance notations that have been difficult to achieve with other software.
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.
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.
2015 was another active year for plug-in development, thanks to Bob Zawalich and Kenneth Gaw. Bob summarizes the year in plug-ins for us along with a list of all plug-ins newly created in the past year.
With three new Sibelius plug-ins and an updated fourth, developer Kenneth Gaw has once again found solutions to save you time, keystrokes and mouse-clicks so that you can produce better results more quickly.
