Sibelius design faults

Harsh, but I must admit I am finding it very difficult for these reasons

Omg!

Still laughing! :bouncy:

It reminds me of all those horrible wilderness years in the 90s on Windows, and some of the worst software designs ever - Word, Frontpage, Filemaker Pro and Quark Xpress being the worst offenders for me...

On the plus side, Dorico really did give them a chance to start from scratch with something modern, and avoid the mess that Sibelius became...

Me too. What were they thinking? :thumbdown:
Which is why I am still keeping an old G4 laptop with Sibelius 3 on it! Quite good enough to provide intricate orchestral and vocal scores for professional performance.
And easy to use! :thumbup:

I watched that a few days ago, trouble is I would have to invest a lot of time to be sure an alternative was actually better. The same guy has a video on Hallelujah covers.

I went to a Dorico demo earlier this year, and it had addressed alot of the criticisms in the video. Dorico also includes a cut-down Cubase sequencer, which is dandy for Cubase users. But not much help to me in Digital Performer. Shame.

Really good video. He is wrong about Finale, it is exceptional software but Sibelius users can become a bit cult like.
