Sib. 7.1: Pickup bar Problems
Posted by ezzerr - 30 Mar 06:39PM
Every new score that I create automatically gets created with the same pickup bar as the last score that I saved. I have been using the "re-size bar" plug-in to fix it and that works but I am finely getting tired of it.

This is a bug, and I am pretty sure the Sibelius guys are aware of it, though I can't find a thread in the forum that confirms this.

I am not aware of the exact conditions where this occurs (I can create a score that has a pickup and then start another and it does not have a pickup, so it does not happen every time), and I don't really have a better workaround than the one you found.

You could delete the first bar, but then it will lose the title text and anything else attached to that bar. The downloadable Delete Bar Plugin (category Composing Tools) will handle this correctly, and it may be worth installing if you have a lot of these.
