Adding style text
Posted by Rob - 04 Dec 12:04AM
Hi Everyone,

I'm now running Sibelius 8.7.2.

I want to add English terms indicative of style on my score and not Italian. Is the best way to do this through pain system text?

I have tried adding the term I want into Edit Text Styles and then assigning the term to Expression. But when I click on a note and go to Expression, the term cannot be found.

Obviously, I am not doing that the right way. Can anyone guide me on this?

Cheers

Rob

Just choose an appropriate Text Style and start typing. I expect Tempo Text or Expression Text would be good choices. Maybe Technique Text. Depends whether you're indicating a speed, a style of playing or a technique for a particular instrument.

Hi Laurence,

That works fine. Might even be quicker than going through the other way.

Cheers

Rob

You should be able to type anything you wish (in English) into expression text. It will appear in italic (not in Italian) style. Glenn Osser's charts used a lot of English words like "loud", "soft", "very loud" etc. Per coloro che non sono andati al corso di musica?.

If you are referring to the words in the right-click context menu, then these need to be defined in Sibelius Preferences -> Word Menus
