I'm using Sibelius Ultimate on Mac. In the latest version it is really easy to set up default templates by Exporting files as Manuscript Paper. It then stores these template files in a Manuscript Paper folder, and they are available to open in the Quick Start Menu.

However, I would like to be able to access these templates on more than one computer, so that I don't have to keep updating templates on each computer. How can I do this?

I tried putting an Alias to an iCloud file in the Manuscript Paper folder; Sibelius won't open using an alias from the Quick Start Menu.

I know I could just save a folder of template Sibelius files in iCloud to open when I need them, but I just wondered if there was a better way to do this, so that they are available in Quick Start.


I would suggest Dorico as another option. I've used Sibelius in the past but have fully switched to Dorico just for the excellent workflow. It is still getting features developed though so it depends what you are looking to do.
