Sibelius 2018.7 now available!
Posted by Joe @ Sibelius - 26 Jul 04:32PM
Hi All,

Sibelius 2018.7 is now available! Here is a list of improvements:


Notation




  • Notes are no longer automatically respaced in some cases when deleting some notes and/or accidentals

  • Double and repeat barlines on the final bar of a staff no longer cause the bar number on the subsequent line to be mis-placed

  • Superfluous cautionary accidentals no longer appear in some cases with gliss lines

  • Accidentals are now correctly displayed when shared between two notes that have an attached gliss line

  • Various tweaks to improve the appearance and behaviour of grace notes

  • When changing the voice of grace notes from one to another, extra rests are no longer added

  • Centered bar numbers are now correctly aligned when key signature changes and certain types of barline are present




Stability



Sibelius no longer unexpectedly quits when:


  • Opening a score with the Quick Start dialog disabled

  • Attempting to change the position of a stem using arrow keys

  • Opening certain files created in older versions of Sibelius

  • Running the "Add Rehearsal Mark Plus Double Barline" ManuScript plug-in when final bar is selected with System selection

  • Entering certain lyrics in Japanese and Korean on Mac

  • Using the "Get score" function to retrieve a score from across a network license server


In addition, Sibelius is now much faster in making edits to text in certain circumstances.

General




  • Enharmonic change by Return key now operates as expected even when there is text within the selection

  • Sibelius now provides extra space for accidentals, as required, when moving a note up or down in semi-tones (1/2 steps) using the keyboard

  • When exporting to previous versions, overlapping voices no longer appear overlain

  • When saving a newly imported MusicXML file for the first time, Sibelius now correctly suggests a .sib file suffix

  • Page dimensions are now more accurate when exporting to PDF in certain circumstances




To download the update, simply head to your account or download from Avid Application Manager directly.

We hope you enjoy these improvements; please let us know how you get on!

With best wishes from Joe and the Sibelius team

In Application Manager, the entry for Sibelius contains the text

Sibelius 2018.7 is here, including various note spacing, stability
and workflow improvements. Visit Sibelius Forum to find out more

with "Sibelius Forum" being a link. That link points to the 2018.6 forum entry, not this one.

Installed the new update. Created a new score. It won't print. Shut down Sibelius. Rebooted the computer. Still won't print. Doesn't appear to be even sending a document to my printer. Tried printing an older score. It also won't print. Doesn't send anything to the printer. This is not a feature. What can I do?

Kitty - this was a problem under Windows 10 at one point recently.

If you're running W10 check you have installed the update released on July 24th that fixed the issue - KB4340917.

In the short term, a work-around is to Export to PDF and print that.

Hi! The volume of edit notes needs to be sorted out, when writing soft parts, clicking the note still plays it at full volume. Very unsatisfactory

If only there was a setting 'dynamic' rather than just a fixed value.

Robin, it would be great if it was following the dynamics in the score. this is a huge improvement for me though!!

Run Windows Update to install the updates issued on July 24th. Then try Sibelius printing again.

Reset Position works even better. How did the group of notes get that way?

Any particular reason you flipped RH bar 6? This seems better...

Robin, I mean flipping those four I did mention :)

Laurence, actually I don't remember how those notes game this way, but funny enough later I copied those notes and they game just like they supposed to come. What I remember I had some notes with the 2nd voice too and chanced 1 to 2 and vice versa and in the end deleted the hole 2nd voice. So there was some kind of procedure which left notes this way.

These things happen as we construct a score. That's why Sibelius offers us Reset Position, Reset Design and Reset Note Spacing commands. Nothing can be considered a bug until it's survived those!

Hi.
I've tried to update from 2018.5 to 2018.7 through Avid Application Manager on Mac OS X, it says "Installing..." but no sign of any progress even after 30 mins... it seems I can't halt the installation OR launch Sibelius Ultimate 2018.5.
Anyone else had this problem? Think I have no other option other than to uninstall completely and reinstall.
(I'm using Application Manager 2018.4.3 as 2018.8, whilst showing as an available upgrade, won't install through Application Manager)
