Sib. 6.2: Plugin for mass "Crossed Stem" creation?
Posted by Kevin Tillman - 26 Oct 07:30PM
Is there a plugin to create multiple crossed stem notes?
I am working on a sprechstimme score and it would be extremely helpful to be able to do this all at once instead of having to do each one individually!

Thanks.

No, there's no plug-in for this at present.

Hi there

if you are not using the z (buzz-roll) articulation, you can edit that symbol and replace it with the x. Then you can select all the notes that require it, and add them in a single keystroke.

Hope that's useful

Hi everyone, I have a question about the crossed stems:
How do I create them?
I've tried with Symbol - Techniques - Crossed Stem, it creates the symbol, but doesn't let me put it on the stem. And I also tried with Symbol - Noteheads - Cross Note, and the same thing... the symbol is there but I cannot put it on the stem

Thanks!!!!

Apply the buzz roll articulation from the 3rd keypad layout (see screenshot).

Jeremy's idea is that you edit the symbol that buzz rolls use to be an X, and then when you apply a buzz roll, it will put the symbol on the stem.

So I tried it but it won't let me replace the "z through stem" symbol with "crossed stem." Alternatively, I found the "z through stem alternate." I was able to replace the "z" with an "x". But the keypad is not responsive to the new symbol. Maybe because I didn't find the right symbol?

Thanks for your help.

It's the Z in the percussion section of Symbols. See attached ...

If you click on the Z that Erik indicates, you will see the name "Buzz Roll", or if using the standard Ribbon version of the Symbol dialog, the name will be present.

This is the symbol that Sibelius uses for the buzz roll articulation (and I only know this from educated guessing and experiment, or having someone tell me, so feel free to ask).

So you need to edit that symbol (Notations>Symbols>Edit Symbol) and replace it with an appropriate X, trying to retain the position as much as possible (you can edit it again and adjust the position if it is off).

Note that this symbol change will only affect the current score. To use it in other scores, export a house style, which you can import into other scores or manuscript papers.
