Sib. 6.x: remove key signature and time signature after first stave
Posted by Andrew C Lilley - 12 Jan 10:16AM
Is there a plugin that will do this. It is common in jazz to lose the key and time signature after the first stave. I used to do this easily in Finale and then switched to sibelius but this appears not to be an available option?

You can only do this system by system via the inspector. Same for clefs. But why go to the bother? Showing the key sig only once is a throwback to the hand copying days when speed was a necessity. As Sib takes the effort out of the copyist's hands, you might as well take advantage of it.

Have you changed your mind about repeats too, Adrian? :-)

Removed post. Scoring notes link above explains more eloquently.

Cheers,

Definitely not, Laurence, especially those that require alternative endings or signs & codas. Just finished a 200 measure big band samba with no repeats apart from a simple 8 measure riff near the end that can be used as a mechanical fade out.

But, in case you're thinking I have a preference for clef/keySig-less systems, it's not so. Either way is OK for me. Practically all the music I was involved with on record and broadcasting sessions before computer publishing came about was prepared in the way Andrew is asking about, so it's not a problem for me. I do tho' prefer bold hand written fonts. They're better for my aging eyes.
