Staff View

I too am a classical musician and really like using Staff view for composing.  Some Instruments I play virtually using a keyboard, some I record directly as audio and some I notate.  I can't do that in a Publishing tool like Sibelius but I do use it to print scores and parts if need be.  A previous post saying that staff view is unusable is not my experience and I can live with its limitations for my use and I will be quite happy when the snap function returns and the ctrl+right click is restored back to just right click.

Another reason that I like Staff View is that I can see more easily the "shape" of the phrases if that makes sense and for multiple parts can see where the melody, harmony and counterpoint move in relation to each other.  I find that really hard in Piano Roll.

Reaper notation is not Sibelius compared to Cakewalk for me.  I use both and find the reaper notation a bit more cumbersome to work with on the whole, however, it's snap functions are perfect!

 

 

I think this is true for standard music notation, not specifically the CW staff view. It's difficult to control contrapuntal music without SMN.  I can hardly imagine some of the great works by Bach, Mahler, Brahms, etc. being composed if standard music notation hadn't been invented and evolved.  The piano roll view (I suppose, I've never used it) can work for simple music, but when you start getting into 6 part harmony or 5 part counterpoint, you're not going to be able to fine tune and develop your ideas as you can with notation.  My only gripes with the current staff view is the oldest of all--the inability to display tied and dotted triplets.  I've gotten used it, and I can have affection for the imperfect, just as others have affection for me with all of my imperfections.  I write tied and dotted triplets whenever I need to and make the quick corrections in Sibelius for the the score.

Hi, I'd like to report CbB have been closing without warning when I drag and drop copy or move chord names (chord symbols) on Staff View.

These are great bug reports, but I'd suggest you open a new thread in the Feedback section for them. Then they have a better chance of being noticed by the developers.

Hi Starship Krupa, thanks for the suggestion to start a new thread to report this bug! But first I'd like to post it on 2021.12 Feedback thread because it seems it's related with the new update.
I've just made a test with earlier version 2021.11 and the bug didn't occur there!

However the issue where content is deleted when drag and drop pasting chord names to another measures is an older bug, which I wish to report soon.

Although sometimes it works as expected.

EDIT: the current issue happens when trying to use drag and drop to copy or move chord names, but leaving Staff View notes on their places.

Also there's another bug which will delete chord names when tweaking with them as described above. Also some notes could be deleted with this procedure.

Best regards

This could be related to a paste issue we found shortly after the 2021.12 release, when pasting into existing clips.  It's been fixed, and will be available in the next release.

How do I change the time signature in staff view?

Time signatures are entered in the Meter/Key view.

Go to View->Meter/Key and add a time signature / key entries at the bars the meter or key changes.

The staff view will automatically add a time signature/key signature change at those points.
