FAQ

How can I get magnetic layout positions to transfer over?

In order to transfer Sibelius’s magnetic layout positions, be sure to freeze the magnetic layout positions before doing the MusicXML export. Otherwise the score will export with the positions that objects would have if magnetic layout were turned off. To freeze the positions, first select everything in the score using Ctrl-A on Windows or Command-A on Mac. Then go to the Layout menu and click on the Freeze Magnetic Layout Positions item.


Where does the Dolet name come from?

Dolet was a famous French translator of the 16th-century. Our Dolet software is also a translator, but this time between more than 260 music programs that previously could only talk to each other using MIDI files. The name is pronounced “doe-lay”, rhyming with Chevrolet.
