I have an issue in Sibelius, where I want to edit a certain note in the whole score (the same note in many octaves), for example the D note, which is highlighted in red to a B note (4 semitones down).

I am using Sibelius 7.5.

When using Sibelius7 (or 7.5) you can use the Filters function to select a group of similar objects (notes, rests, text etc.). This then allows you to perform the same action on all of these selected objects. The Filters functions are found on the Home tab (towards the right-hand side of the image below):

I'll demonstrate how to use this feature with a short excerpt from the music you link to. Here it is with the Ds unchanged:

If you click on the Advanced button next to the Filters button, you will open a pane giving you a large number of options for which characteristics you want filtered objects to have:

To select all the Ds in your score:

  • select Notes and Chords from the left-hand list.

  • select Single next to Pitch.

enter image description here

  • select D under Sounding as the pitch you want to select (leave the option next to it set to Any, to select this pitch in any octave).

enter image description here

If you now click on the Select button, in the bottom right-hand corner of the pane, all the Ds in your score will be selected (assuming you left the option Find in: Whole score selected in the top left-hand corner of the pane):

enter image description here

Now you can simply press the down-arrow key twice to move all of these Ds down to Bs:

I did this in Sibelius7, but I doubt it is significantly different in Sibelius7.5.
