Compatibility table between PhotoScore Professional and Sibelius versions:
|PhotoScore Professional 1.xx plug-in|
It is recommended that customers upgrade to PhotoScore 1.86 or higher and Sibelius 2 to take advantage of much improved importing capabilities and support for transposing scores.
Sibelius 2 will not load the PhotoScore plug-in. Customers must upgrade to PhotoScore 1.86 (a standalone version) or PhotoScore 2.
|PhotoScore Professional 1.8x standalone|
It is recommended that customers upgrade to Sibelius 2 to take advantage of much improved importing capabilities and support for transposing scores.
PhotoScore's Send to Sibelius button is not available, therefore it is necessary to save .opt files from PhotoScore's File menu and open these from Sibelius's File menu. The PhotoScore installer also reports that Sibelius is not installed on the system; customers should opt to continue installation anyway. The PhotoScore 2 upgrade solves these problems.
|PhotoScore Professional 2|
Sibelius 1.xx will not read guitar chords, fingerings, or text formatting from PhotoScore 2 files. It is also recommended that customers upgrade to Sibelius 2 to take advantage of much improved importing capabilities and support for transposing scores.
No known problems.
