Sib. 7.1: Bug Report - Rewire Pro Tools and Sibelius
Posted by Mike MacSween - 30 Mar 07:54PM
If you have Pro Tools and Sibelius running in ReWire more, and you are in ProTools, start playback, then stop playback (using either spacebar or transport), focus switches to Sibelius.

I thought Cliff Bradley had caught the problem, which he has, sort of. He says that if the Keypad is visible in Sibelius, then you get this problem, if not, no problem. I thought, good, problem solved, except it's a nuisance to hide the keypad, if you need, er, the keypad.

So here's the thing. In Sibelius (7) go to Preferences, Score Position. Under the 'During Play and Flexi-Time' section UNCHECK 'Hide unnecessary tool Windows' option. That seems to solve it here. You can ReWire PT and Sib together, and have the Keypad Window up. And if you stop/start from Pro Tools you stay in ProTools.

Actually I tried the same thing with the Ideas window open with the 'Hide unnecessary tool Windows' checked. And DIDN'T have the problem. The Ideas windows being one of the windows that does get hidden during playback if that options selected.

It looks like it's a bug. Something like the keypad getting hidden on playback, playback starts, that sends some sort of message to the OS to switch focus.

Mike.
