Sibelius and Sibelius First 8.5.1 are now available!
Posted by Sam at Sibelius - 19 Jan 05:08PM
We're pleased to announce the immediate availability of Sibelius 8.5.1. This update includes a good crop of improvements that have come directly from the feedback we've received from this forum community and our tireless beta testers. In summary, the changes in this release, are:

Inspector
* Font and Size of text can now be changed from the Inspector
* Rit. and Accel. controls in the Inspector are working once more
* Each section in the Inspector now remembers their open or closed state
* It's now easier to type in the number you need in the Inspector
* When using Versions, controls in the Inspector are disabled
* View > Panels > Hide All now hides all the panels rather than switching them off
* Inspector now respects the Translucent setting in Preferences
* Spin boxes in Notes section of the Inspector are now vertical aligned
* All controls are now highlighted when tabbing through the Inspector with the keyboard (Mac only)

Multiple Staff Sizes
* A new % column has been added to the Staff Sizes list in Engraving Rules
* Key signatures no longer collide with clefs and time signatures when changing from an Extra small staff size to Normal staff size
* The dots of repeat bars are now positioned correctly when changing staff size
* Making staff size changes in Add or Remove Instrument dialog no longer removes custom staff changes you may have made for that instrument
* Changing staff size on a system with only one bar no longer removes changes in the next system
* Staff Size on the Layout tab has been renamed “Normal Staff Size”

Misc
* File > Append Score no longer causes a crash
* Improvements when changing from unpitched to pitched instruments
* Sibelius 8.5.1 installers now include AppMan 2.5.12
* When entering Expression text, Command-Option-Shift-Z now works once more on Sierra

You can download 8.5.1 from Avid Application Manager, or from your account at https://my.avid.com/products

We hope you enjoy the new improvements! If you're at the NAMM Show in Anaheim this week, please pop by the Avid booth and we'll be happy to show you around the new improvements in Sibelius and Sibelius First 8.5.1.

I see no mention that copy-pasting rehearsal mark and double bar line together actually paste in the same place (as they did in 7.1.3) instead of a measure apart from each other (as in 8). Has this been repaired in 8.5.1 or not? Disappointed about space hogging inspector too.

No it has not been repaired only option still is to use Bob's plugin. Haven't had time with it to see if there are other issues with this update, but if the past performance is any indication there probably is.

The fewer bugs fixed, the fewer new bugs introduced. It all balances out. Sort of.

I can't even find the download link! My Avid Application Manager has never worked and fails to find my account. If you have a download link, please post it as a reply.

Please could someone direct me to the download link for 8.5.1? My Avid Application Manager has never worked and is now quitting after a minute or two. I'm not seeing any links to a download of 8.5.1

Can I temporarily install (and uninstall) a trial version of 8.5.1 for testing purposes parallel to a licensed version Sibelius 8.4.1 without any disturbance?

Actually I'm working with Sibelius 8.4. on a MacPro. In larger scores I experience unacceptable long delay times from editing one note to playback sound (with Sibelius Sounds 10 ... 60 s). Obviously Sibelius scans the complete score after editing only one note!

Did Avid solve this heavy delay problem in Version 8.5?

P.S. Switching to General Midi is much faster, but wouldn't help for tuning articulations :-(

No. 8.5.1 will over-write the installation of any earlier version of Sibelius 8.x.

> Did Avid solve this heavy delay problem in Version 8.5?

This was not an issue addressed in 8.5.1. It is not a recognised issue. You should start a new thread with full details if you want help.

Hi there,

Sib Inspector is still too large as mentioned (see screenshot).

Pls try to make it smaller :-)
