Entering Note Head Markings: You can select note to add note head markings such as, accents, staccato, tenuto or even the ties.
Entering Accidentals: In order to add accidentals, we would need to load the mouse with a sharp or flat pretty much the same way we grab a note from the keypad.
Engraving Rules: Appearance > House Style > Engraving Rules Shortcut: Command + Shift + E
Using the Keyboard: Knowing how Sibelius numeric keyboard functions, we can use our right hand to make selections on keypad and enter the notes with our left hand on the Alpha keyboard.
Entering Note Head Marks & Ties: You could enter ties and other marks to your score by keyboard in a similar way.
