Sibelius 3 is the worlds most intuitive software.
The Sibelius screen is simple and intuitive, so you can concentrate on writing music without the constant distraction of menus and dialog boxes. To look around the music, just click and drag the page—it really feels like you're moving manuscript paper in front of you. Alternatively, drag the Navigator to move smoothly through many pages at once.

You can even choose different colors and textures for the paper and desk on the screen.

Sketch & refine

Sibelius 3 lets you change music whenever you like. Sketch a solo flute piece, then add a whole orchestra to create a concerto. Write in sounding pitch, then make a transposing score with one click. Add extra bars at the start of a score, and Sibelius instantly reformats every page—far more flexible than pen and paper. If you completely change your mind, Sibelius lets you undo up to 10,000 operations, and keeps backups of 40 previous versions of your music.

Text & lyrics

Sibelius puts different types of text such as dynamics, titles and lyrics, in the appropriate font, size and position. You can edit these text styles to change text consistently throughout the score.

To input lyrics, just type—Sibelius positions the words under the notes, puts in hyphens and lyric lines, and allows extra room for long syllables. You can also copy lyrics from a word processor.

Arrange

Arrange is a unique feature to help with arranging and orchestration. It's ideal for students learning instrumental writing, and saves hours of time for experienced professionals.

Just select some music, and specify how you want it to be arranged or orchestrated—Sibelius does the rest in an instant, using appropriate instruments, doublings, etc. It handles anything from keyboard reductions and 'exploding' chords onto separate staves, to sophisticated arrangement and orchestration styles such as:

Band, using high brass and pitched percussion
Choir, tenor doubling soprano down an octave
Jazz, in the style of famous band leaders including Sammy Nestico, Billy Strayhorn and Thad Jones

Impressionist orchestration with harp and strings.

Over 150 of these styles are provided, and you can even create your own.

Copying & transposing

Copying music is far faster than re-writing it, so Sibelius copies anything with one click of the mouse—especially useful for doubled instruments and repeating figures. You can make multiple copies at once, e.g. to put the same dynamics onto every instrument.

Sibelius transposes music instantly into any key, and handles everything about transposing instruments for you. Write music in sounding or written pitch, and switch between the 2 whenever you like. Unplayable notes shown in bright red, difficult notes in dark red. Mark music with the highlighter pen

Checking for mistakes

Sibelius saves you time by spotting all kinds of mistakes such as rhythms that don't add up, or notes that are too high/low to play (see picture). Sibelius knows every instrument's range, which you can adjust for players of different abilities.

House Styles & engraving rules

Sibelius makes your scores look stunning, because it automatically applies hundreds of subtle music engraving rules to optimize every aspect of your score's appearance. You can set 'House Style' options to emulate the high-quality appearance of famous publishers, or design your own house style(s) to make your scores look distinctive. A whole menu of options is included, to control everything from text styles and notehead shapes to complex engraving rules.

No 'faking'

Sibelius automatically handles many tricky notations that other programs have to fake such as: collisions between voices (layers), multi-arc slurs with any number of arcs, beams over rests and across barlines, cross-staff beams between 3 staves, text and wavy lines at any angle (e.g. gliss.), and ossias.
