Sibelius 5 Staff Types/ House Styles

I know this is a Sibelius issue, I'm within my waiting period of hearing back from them. If you haven't messed with Sibelius 5 yet, ignore this post!

They changed the Edit Staff Types and Staff Type Change options and now I can't figure out how to make them happen! I tried to make a staff type change on the VDL2 Template for Sib 4 and there weren't VDL2 staff types available to me. I thought I had it figured out in the Edit Instruments section, but nope.

Anyone out there messed with Sib 5 and figured this out yet? Do I need to chill out and be patient?


";Instrument Changes"; are what you'll be looking for. This won't to you much good yet till we can get the Sibelius 5 template more workable, but it's making progress. Hopefully some news to report soon. Hang in there, and thanks for your patience!

Ralph,

Jim and I are currently working on new templates for Sibelius 5.�� We thought it was going to be easier than it is turning out.�� We'll get the new templates as soon as we can.

I can't speak for Jim obviously, but I'm sure I can at least come up with some sort of documentation once the new template is available.

Chill out and be patient!�� :)

No problem, thanks a lot!

Having browsed through the Sibelius 5 demo, I'm ultra excited about the added ability for articulations and stem decoration distinguishers in addition to noteheads in the new staff mapping. I think that's a great feature that will be very useful for VDL maps. :)
