This plug-in writes to the Trace Window the locations of all objects in the score (or current part) that have been hidden, which can be useful when proof-reading your score.

Check Open and Mute

Added 05 Mar 2009

For use with Sibelius 5

This plug-in checks for redundant open and mute markings. It checks articulation markings (˚ and +), Italian text ("con sord./sordino" and "senza sord./sordino"), and English text ("open/unmute/unmuted" and "mute/muted/closed"). For text, you can choose to Hide, Select, or Delete the redundant markings. For articulations, you can choose to Delete or Locate Only. There is the additional option to locate them to the trace window or to a user-specified log file.

Check Entrances

Added 22 Mar 2009 (last updated 22 Mar 2009)

For use with Sibelius 5

The plug-in checks all entries in each staff of a score (or one specified staff) for the presence of dynamics. It can also correct entries missing dynamics so that the last present dynamic marking is reiterated at the next entry.

Additionally, if it can not find a previous marking (meaning that no dynamics have been declared throughout the piece in that staff), you can choose to use a default dynamic marking of your choice.

There are also a number of locate functions (to the trace window or log file). There is also a column of controls for checking entrances at rehearsal marks. All entrances will be found using the other functions, but if you want to locate rehearsal marks, or, more likely, reiterate dynamics at rehearsal marks, you can use this function even if a staff does not have a true entrance at the rehearsal mark. Because default dynamics can be created at rehearsal marks, dynamics will even be added to bar rests. If this is undesirable, there is a parameter to strip dynamics from bar rests.

One final, fun function of this plug-in is a \'Quick View\' of all entrances, this scans through the score and brings each entrance into view as it is located. The plug-in is for Sibelius 5.

Identify Selected Object

Added 17 Apr 2009 (last updated 22 Aug 2017)

For use with Sibelius 4, Sibelius 4.1, Sibelius 5, Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x and Sibelius 18.x

This plug-in identifies all of the selected objects. While it is really intended to identify a single object, it can accurately create a list of identifications for a multiple or passage selection. The plugin gives all of the properties listed in the properties window, as well as some \'behind the scenes\' information. For example, formatting and font information is provided for text objects. One of the most beneficial usages of the plugin is in dissecting scores that you yourself may not have created. In such instances it is useful to be able to accurately identify exactly what an object is so that it can either be recreated or modified.
