Welcome to the Sibelius WIKI!

The purpose of this WIKI is to give common answers to issues that are not explained well or at all in the Sibelius Manual and to help making your Sibelius experience both more fun and more efficient. Using This WIKI should be a faster path to solving your issue than wading through dozens of threads on a forum. Please contribute your favorite tips and tricks here as well to help the knowledge base to grow.
Always perform a search using the search box on the left when looking for something. A lot of pages are not referenced on this startpage or in the Content Areas!

This WIKI is pretty young, so please help us filling it with content!
If you would like to help making Sibelius WIKI the very best resource for everything Sibelius please register and contribute to the WIKI!
Although we write in English, everything should also apply to Localised Versions of Sibelius.
