    I have been using Sibelius for about 4 years and although I am quite pleased with the results I have one major complaint. I help run the local ukulele group and need to be able to add ukulele chords to the scores.
    Can you please give this your prompt attention.
    Many thanks

    Since the Windows Fall update the Surface pen doesn’t seem to work with Sibelius, or is it just me?
