How do I format individual parts in Sibelius?

Open your first part, and quickly improve its spacing by:

  1. Select all (cmd-A on a Mac)
  2. Reset note spacing (shift-cmd-N or in the Appearance tab of the ribbon)
  3. With everything still selected, click Optimise in the Layout tab (I made my own keyboard shortcut 'O' for this as I use it a lot).
