Sib. 6.x: create a unique Key Signature
Posted by Gabor Juhasz - 04 Jan 07:29PM
Hi,
How can I create a unique Key Signature, for example when sharp of G major is in the place F4 not F5.

Manually, with Symbols. And don't expect it to play back.

There are workarounds. Have a look at this thread

http://www.sibelius.com/cgi-bin/helpcenter/chat/chat.pl?com=thread&start=633150&groupid=3&&guest=1

and look for Win Hoogeworf's post. He has a way of reusing clefs and adding symbols to them for the fake key signature which might be worth investigating. The advantage is that the symbols attach to the clef.

The problems, assuming you get past needing to cannibalize a clef, are that the key signature changes can be messy, and transposing instruments and transposing in general have to be looked at.

Also the fake key sig does not affect the accidentals for notes.

One workaround for that is to have a real key sig that is close to what you want, and then use the downloadable plugin Hide Specific Accidentals (category Accidentals), which will let you specify spefic pitches that will hide the accidentals.

Given that you are not actually changing which pitches are sharped, but just moving the F# to a different location, this is likely not an issue for you.
