    I use Sibelius Edition 1.4 for my vain attempts at composing in addition to student stuff and arranging. I like it a lot and have finally gotten to the point where I am fairly proffecient with it.

    My question- I can't get more than one line of notes in the same measure on the same instrument. You know how sometimes in piano music, for example, on the treble line there will be the main row of music and there might be a half note not connected to the lower quarter or eighth or whatever notes below that indicates you should also play that note at the same time for the indicated time? I can't figure out how to get sibelius to do this and since, as you may have guessed, I don't know what this is called so I can't look it up in the manual. If you could tell me the name of it or how to make sibelius do it or both that would be great.

    Thanks!
    :)
