I've been looking for an answer and I hope this is the right place to get it.
Since I've been working with Sibelius (3,4,5), I always had the famous crescendo problem, and I know it's not a problem to everybody. When I asked for the right use of crescendo in Sibelius, people always write "use midi messages", so at this point, I've always used the exhausting "~C7,127" everywhere in the score, and I won't mention the changes I have to do sometimes.
Anyway, I've heard with the new Sib 6 this problem is solved.. All we have to do is input the crescendo (Ctrl - H), and type the dynamic (I don't know how to call it, for example ppp - mf). However, I just can't make it work.
My questions are, do I need to use the "~C7,xxx" coding even with this new version? does it work with any VSTi? am I doing it wrong? if I am the problem, what are the right steps to input the crescendo?
Any answer will help, thanks.
