Mark up your score faster than ever before

Forget about having to enter slurs, crescendos, and decrescendos one by one, or copying a line from one instrument to another. You can now add multiple slurs, hairpins, or any other staff lines all at once—across multiple instruments—by making a passage selection or object selection. Sibelius will then intelligently enter the lines into your score. Once they’re in, you can then extend or contract all the lines using the Space or Shift+Space keys, saving valuable creative time.

Add score dynamics and text faster
