A BIG time-saver would be to have note stems automatically have the correct direction after extracting a single voice from a track. For instance, if I extract 1st Flute (voice 1) from a staff where flutes 1&2 are notated together (as is standard in orchestral scores) I then have to flip the stems for all notes above B on the staff. Likewise for low notes extracted from voice 2which always come up with stems down instead of up. For me, part extraction is the most time consuming part of preparing any work for performance and this just adds more hassle. I have also been told that Sibelius can automatically link edits in a part to the master score- another GREAT feature to add.

This problem is well known and hopefully will be addressed in either another update of 4.1 or in Overture 5.
I have no insider info, just the same hope.

A fix I use sometimes (but only any good if there aren't lots of personalised accidentals) is to select the whole part, press up-arrow and then down-arrow.

Oh, yeah--forgot that trick...works 9x% of the time.
Thanx for the memory jog.
