At my website www.bergmannedition.com
, I usually publish my scores in three different versions: 1. Clean - a version without any fingering, 2. Edited - a version with fingering, and 3. TAB - a version with TAB's and a small version of the edited version.
It sounds like a lot of work, but using the template added this post, it is rather easy. I use the following workflow:
1. Write the score without fingering in the first staff using the "Full Score" view - the staff called "clean". Here I only take what should be in the final so called CLEAN-score, which is the most basic notation. While I write this score I focus on the staff using the "Focus on Staves" feature found in the Sibelius Layout-ribbon. When I've finished working on the Clean score I turn of the "Focus on Staves" feature so I can see all three staffs.
2. Next I copy the final CLEAN score to the second staff called "Edit" (three click on the system to select, ctrl+c to copy, ctrl+v to insert). I use "Focus on Staves" while I add all fingering to the EDITED staff.
3. Then I copy the Clean version into the TAB and check that the numbers in the TAB are ok.
Now the three version are ready as three separate Parts: Clean - Edit, TAB - and Edit. Each of the three parts can then be justified with the features in the layout-ribbon. Often the only adjustments needed are changing the "Staff size" or change the "spaces between staves and systems" and an occasional Page- or System- break.
The template include a Carcassi etude - illustrating the idea. You simply delete all the notes using the "Full Score" view before you use for your own purpurse.
It is my experience that it is best to make all (or most) editing of notes and fingering using the "Full Score" view and only edit the three parts views using the features in the Layout ribbon. In the "Full score" view you should not work with the features in the Layout ribbon - the three systems is only used as source for the Parts, which represent the final look.
It cost me only few minutes extra to use this workflow compared to only work on an edited version. And I can see at my website, that Both the TAB version and the Clean version are as popular as the edited version.
At last I use the "Export parts as separate pdf-files" found in the "File"-ribbon to get three files for distributing.
Please, try it for yourselves, and don't hesitate to ask, if you need further help to understand the workflow.
