[sib-access] Re: deleting every thing on one stave

Dan,

W/r Ctrl-Shift-A for selection being context-sensitive -- that's absolutely 
wonderful information. It would help to explain why I've not always been a 
fan of that keystroke, now I know why.

Interesting that only a single system is affected in your third scenario. So 
to clarify, if my page has 8 systems of piano grand staff and I've selected 
the expression text on the third system down and then press Ctrl-Shift-A and 
then delete, I only delete expression text on that third system and all 
others are unaffected?

This would seem to be a bit difficult for the blind to determine the extent 
of a delete operation, to know exactly what bars are affected. Of course 
using the Alt+f2 to list out the pages/systems can help.

Again, thanks for the details.

Dave

The select bars dialog is new is Sibelius 5.

The select more feature has a keystroke (Control + Shift + A) and it is
context sensitive.

. If a note in a chord is selected then the entire chord is selected.
.If an isolated note or entire chord is selected then it selects the entire
bar.
. If an item which is not a note or rest is selected then every item of that
type will be selected on the current staff but in the current system only.

Steph,
Assuming that you only want to delete the notes and rests in one
staff without deleting the staff itself, do the following:
1.  Make sure that you are in the staff whose notes you wish to delete.
2.  Under the Edit Menu, select the Select submenu and go to Select Bars.
3.  You will be in a dialog with a from and through box.  You'll be in the
through box.  Type the number of the last bar whose notes you wish to
delete.
4.  Tab to the next box.  Usually, the first note of the score will be
selected in that box already.   If you want to delete from some point within
a score that is not the beginning, type the number the bar at which you wish
to start your deletion.  There is no way to begin your deletion at a point
within a bar using this command.
5.  Tab to the box that says make system selection and be certain that it is
not checked.  This is important because if you have checked it, not only the
notes, but also the very staves will be removed which will change the number
of bars in your score.
7.  Tab to and click OK.  You should find that you have empty bars on the
staff whose notes you wish to remove.
As far as I know, this select command was not in Sibelius 3.  I just
discovered it myself and I think it's very cool.
There are also select all and select more commands.  I've done some
fiddling with the select more command and, as far as I can tell, if you are
on the first beat of a bar in one staff and choose select more, the entire
bar will be selected.  However, if you are at the first beat of a bar in
more than one staff, say a piano, for example and select more, nothing seems
to happen.  Finally, it also appears that if you are on a beat other than 1
in a bar and select more, nothing seems to happen.
Anyone else feel free to chime in and correct anything I've gotten
wrong here.
Kevin

Is there a way to delete every thing on one stave?
