Intelligent page layout
Sibelius's unique page layout means that you'll never have to worry about spacing, formatting, or how your score will look when it's printed.

As you add instruments, notes and lyrics to your score, Sibelius instantly applies hundreds of built-in engraving and spacing rules to organize your music on the page in the most appropriate and pleasing way - pushing bars onto subsequent pages if the music gets too cramped. The process is entirely automated, giving the most elegant result - there's no need to waste creative time setting up complicated templates. Slurs, trills and other lines attach intelligently to notes, and stretch or contract if the spacing changes.

Sibelius is just as fast when you're making really major changes to your score, such as altering the size or shape of your page. In fact, it takes just 1/10th of a second for Sibelius to change the layout of your entire score - regardless of its length! No more waiting around for your computer to do its job.

Controlling layout yourself
If you like, though, you can change the layout yourself: you can specify page and system breaks, freeze the format of pages, choose different note-spacing rules and squeeze in or spread out whole passages of music. You're in complete control.

Part extraction  
Sibelius extracts a part from a full score in just a few seconds. Almost no 'cleaning up' of parts is required, as Sibelius does everything for you - such as grouping bar rests together into multirests, splitting these at all necessary points (time signatures, rehearsal marks, key changes, etc.), transferring all relevant text and markings from the full score, and respacing all of the music.

For transposing instruments like clarinet or trumpet in Bb, Sibelius will transpose the notation automatically from sounding pitch in the full score to written pitch in the extracted part. Instruments can even change transposition mid-score (e.g. trumpets in Bb/D).
