German Chord Names

Added 01 Aug 2005 (last updated 17 Jun 2015)

For use with Sibelius 2.x, Sibelius 3.x, Sibelius 4, Sibelius 4.1, Sibelius 5, Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5 and Sibelius 8.x

This plug-in converts chord symbols text in your score between the German (B = B flat, H = B) and standard (Bb = B flat, B = B) conventions for chord symbols. This is useful when e.g. wanting to transpose German chord symbols (convert them to standard chord symbols, transpose, then convert them back to German chord symbols).

Updated August 9, 2008 to handle alternate flat symbol in Sib 5.

Updated 20 October 2014 to mark them as usable through Sibelius 7.5. No code changes were made. Note that the plugin will only work with Legacy Chord Symbols, and that the Engraving Rules-Chord Symbols-Language feature is a better way to show German chord symbol names.

Add or Replace System Text

Version 01.80.00
Added 01 Aug 2005 (last updated 17 Jun 2015)

For use with Sibelius 3.x, Sibelius 4, Sibelius 4.1, Sibelius 5, Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5 and Sibelius 8.x

This plug-in can write up to three items of system text (e.g. Title, Copyright, Composer, etc.) to all the scores in a folder. It is able to replace any existing text if required.

Updated May 22, 2008 to work with user-defined styles in Sibelius 4 and 5.

Updated 2 April 2009 for internal code cleanup

Updated 7 June 2012 to add quiet opening checkbox to open scores from earlier versions with default options.

Reverse Text

Version 01.03.00
Added 01 Aug 2005 (last updated 17 Jun 2015)

For use with Sibelius 3.x, Sibelius 4, Sibelius 4.1, Sibelius 5, Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5 and Sibelius 8.x

Reverse Text reverses the order of text in each selected Text, Lyric, or System Text object. It will not reverse the orderof a sequence of objects, but just the text within single objects. If you want objects in the system staff (like Title Text) reversed, create a system (double blue box) selection.

One use for this might be to reverse Hebrew or Arabic text.

This plug-in does not handle multi-line text well; it is best to split such items into separate text objects for each line. (Multi-line items will reverse, but the line separator will be lost).

French Chord Names

Added 01 Aug 2005 (last updated 17 Jun 2015)

For use with Sibelius 2.x, Sibelius 3.x, Sibelius 4, Sibelius 4.1, Sibelius 5, Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5 and Sibelius 8.x

This plug-in converts chord symbols text in your score between the French (sol-fa) and standard (Bb = B flat, B = B) conventions for chord symbols. This is useful when e.g. wanting to transpose German chord symbols (convert them to standard chord symbols, transpose, then convert them back to French chord symbols).

Updated 20 October 2014 to mark them as usable through Sibelius 7.5. No code changes were made. Note that the plugin will only work with Legacy Chord Symbols, and that the Engraving Rules-Chord Symbols-Language feature is a better way to show French chord symbol names.

Multirest Text

Version 01.81.00
Added 01 Aug 2005 (last updated 17 Jun 2015)

For use with Sibelius 3.x, Sibelius 4, Sibelius 4.1, Sibelius 5, Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5 and Sibelius 8.x

Multirest Text builds a text string out of 2 user-typed pieces of text and the optional multirest number, so you can add text like \\\\\\\"Play 3 times\\\\\\\" automatically to a multirest.

There are a number of centering options possible (see the Help screen for details), but it generally works best with text styles that are defined as centered. There are 2 \\\\\\\"built-in\\\\\\\" styles (Lyrics and Lyrics(chorus)), and you can also type in the name of any text style you wish.

Some sample text styles are defined in the included MultirestTextStyle.lib house style. Import the text styles from this house style, and two new entries will appear in the built in style list (Multirest center (Times) and Multirest center (Inkpen). You can also define your own styles, named Multirest center3 through Multirest center6, and these will also show up in the list. They are assumed by the plugin to be centered in both directions.

You can use uncentered styles and make adjustments by clicking on the Advanced button and using the fields in that dialog.

Updated 19 April 2009 to fix failure to handle custom text styles in Sib 5.

Plug-in written by Bob Zawalich.

Number Multirest Bars

Version 02.05.00
Added 22 Aug 2005 (last updated 17 Jun 2015)

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

This plug-in adds text containing numbers for the range of bars contained in multirests. You can change the location of the text by changing its text style. You can specify text to precede or follow the bar numbers and a character to separate them.

For example, if bars 2 through 5 are a multirest, and you choose the defaults, you will see the text (2 - 5) below the staff at bar 2.

New in v2.05:

  • Custom text styles work in Sibelius 4, and there is a new option to center the text if a centered text style is used.

Plug-in written by Bob Zawalich.

Edit Instrument Names

Version 02.16.00
Added 02 Dec 2005 (last updated 17 Jun 2015)

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

This plug-in allows you to edit the full and short instrument names, even if the name is empty, and difficult to click on. It creates a list of the instrument names (both the current visible name and the name when the instrument was created) of all staves in a score, and lets you change them.

It attempts to maintain font changes in the instrument name (such as the Opus Text change to b in Clarinet in Bb). You should check such names carefully, however.

Rewritten in February 2009 to allow up to 30 instruments to be updated one one dialog screen, and have multiple screens for more instruments.

Updated 23 February 2009 to improve tabbing order when there is more than 1 column of instruments.

Description edited - no longer works in v4

Updated 9 August 2011 for Sib 7 font compatibility

Updated 17 January 2012 to make dialog text fit better in Sib 7.

Plug-in written by Bob Zawalich.

Distribute Score Info

Version 01.50.00
Added 18 Sep 2006 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

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

Distribute Score Info takes data from the File > Score Info Title, Composer, Lyricist, Subtitle, Dedication, or Copyright fields and replaces the contents of any existing Title, Composer, Lyricist, Subtitle, Dedication, or Copyright text items with this data. If no such text items exist, the plug-in will create an appropriate item in the first bar of the score. It can write out a wildcard for the data, or the data itself.

Updated 6 February 2014 to fix subtitle bug.

Updated 21 February 2012 to handle unsaved scores better.

Plug-in written by Bob Zawalich.

Fill Score Info

Version 01.38.00
Added 18 Sep 2006 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

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

Fill Score Info will take data from edit boxes in a dialog and put them into the File > Score Info fields. It can be run on a single score or on a folder of scores.

It can also take Title, Composer, Lyricist or Copyright text in the score and put those into the corresponding Score Info fields. It can optionally fill only empty Score Info fields, and leave already filled ones alone.

If can be very useful for scores to be published on the web via Scorch (which require Score Info data, in order for the web page templates to look correct), and also as a starting point for database programs that can look at the Score Info fields, such as the Create Score Database plug-in.

Updated 26 April 2011. Include Subtitle and other fields not available in Sibelius 4. Now requires Sibelius 5 or later. For Sib 4, see Fill Score Info for Sibelius 4.

Updated 29 May 2011. New option (on by default) to maintain formatting in system text imported from the score. Useful for multi-line text. Be careful using this if you will generate Scorch files that use Score Info data, as formatting may not be accepted in all fields.

Plug-in written by Bob Zawalich.

Change Case for Sibelius 4

Version 01.60.00
Added 17 Oct 2006 (last updated 26 Nov 2017)

For use with Sibelius 4, Sibelius 4.1 and Sibelius 5

This plug-in changes the case of text in a score. It will only convert the letters A..Z or a..z; it cannot handle accented characters. It can change text to UPPER CASE, lower case, tOGGLE cASE or Word Initial Case. It can change various types of text objects, including system text, lyrics, instrument names and score info data. It can be run on a single score or on a folder of scores.

Note that text that is in multiple lines will be converted to a single line, and any internal formatting (fonts or bold/italic, etc.) will be lost.

For Sibelius 5, use Change Case Pre-Sibelius 6 (included). For Sibelius 6 and later, use Change Case.

Updated 9 August 2011 for Sib 7 font compatibility

Updated 29 Sept 2011 to change name/

Updated 25 November 2017 to add Change Case Pre-Sibelius 6 to zip file to use for Sib 5.

Plug-in written by Bob Zawalich.

Instrument List

Version 01.13.00
Added 05 May 2007 (last updated 28 Aug 2017)

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

This plug-in adds a list of the instruments at the start of the selected staves as a text item at the start of the score.

You can choose which elements will appear in the list, and the order in which they will appear.

Updated 29 November 2009. Now places the text at the start of the selection if any, fixes a bug with the title text, adds Instrument changes for Sib 5+, and allows you to specify if the list will appear in the score or in a part.

Updated 27 July 2010. Under Sib 6, it can now insert the instrument list onto a Sib 6-style title page.

Updated 26 August 2017. New option to omit empty staves, plus dialog was rearranged to make it clearer that list can go either to the title page or the score but not both.

Updated 28 August 2017. Fixed Omit Empty Staves Option. Added options to trace lists and to Not show dialog for this session, which makes it easier to use with Run Plugin on Score and Parts.

Plug-in written by Bob Zawalich.

Fix PhotoScore Lyrics

Added 17 May 2007 (last updated 24 Jul 2009)

For use with Sibelius 4, Sibelius 4.1 and Sibelius 5

This plug-in replaces lyrics read by Photoscore (which when sung over many notes usually lack of the appropriate hyphen line or end of word line) with the correct Sibelius objects.

Simply make a passage selection and run the plug-in. Use Layout > Reset Position afterwards if you find hyphens colliding with adjacent syllables.

Plug-in written by Hans-Christoph Wirth.

Delete Empty Text Strings

Version 01.50.00
Added 05 Oct 2007 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

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

Deletes truly empty text strings, which were probably put into a score by a plug-in or file converter. These are usually not a problem, but if they are, this will clean them up.

Updated Jan 1, 2009 to add staff info to trace.

Updated Jan 11, 2009 to fix bug that deleted *all* text if the all-spaces checkbox was unchecked.

Updated 12 Feb 2009 to restructure some code.

Updated 16 May 2009 to allow empty and spaces only strings to be deleted separately, and also added a trace-only option

Plug-in written by Bob Zawalich.

Delete Duplicate Text Lines Symbols

Version 01.03.00
Added 06 Oct 2007 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

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

Deletes copies of text objects, lines, or symbols that have the same properties and location as another object of the same type.

Plug-in written by Bob Zawalich.

Move System Objects For Delete Bar

Version 01.50.00
Added 06 Oct 2007 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

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

This is an update of Copy Text For Delete Bar. Copies any system objects (such as Title, Composer, or Instrument name at top left, time signatures, key signatures, rehearsal marks) from one bar to another.

Typically you will copy from bar 1 to bar 2 when you want to delete bar 1 without losing the system objects. If a bar number is duplicated in the score (because of bar number changes), you will need to make a selection that excludes the duplicate of any bars you want to process.

Updated 15 May 2010 to fix incorrect copying of time signatures from pickup bars and special barlines

Plug-in written by Bob Zawalich.

Restore Tempo

Version 01.15.00
Added 06 Oct 2007 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

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

Restores the tempo at the start of the selection to the end of the selection. It can be used for “a tempo”.

Updated 18 December 2011 to add in missing variable.

Updated 19 December 2011. New option for text style, options saved across Sibelius sessions, new warning text.

Updated 21 December 2011. Fixed bug that gave wrong values if time signature changes within the selection range.

Updated 22 December 2011. Changed the way a beat is calculated to match what Sibelius does for current tempo.

Plug-in written by Bob Zawalich.

Bracket Expression Text

Version 01.88.00
Added 15 Nov 2007 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

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

Puts brackets or parentheses (or any chosen character(s)) around selected expression text. It is especially useful for bold expressions entered with the ctrl or cmnd key, since those involve a font change.

Updated 7 November 2009 to add spacing around 'f' characters to avoid collisions with the brackets. Sib 6.1 is recommended, though it will work in Sib 5.

Updated 23 Feb 2011. It now allows you to process Expression dynamic text (which starts with a font change, and is typically bold) separately from normal expression text. It also allows to to use bold brackets for dynamics only or for all expressions.

Updated 21 November 2011 to handle dynamics correctly in Sib 7.

Plug-in written by Bob Zawalich.

Add Cresc Dim Lines

Version 01.62.00
Added 15 Nov 2007 (last updated 05 Jun 2016)

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

Adds crescendo and/or diminuendo lines and optional expression text to a selection.

You can include Expression Text if desired; if the edit boxes are blank, only the line(s) will appear. Type or select an appropriate font if you want bold expression text.

To increase the amount of space surrounding the characters, increase the Rhythmic space per character (quarter note = 256 units). This may expand the output past the selection. It cannot be expanded past the end of the score.

You may still need to adjust horizontal spacing using arrow keys.

This will run in Sib 4, but some features are missing and text and lines will not align as well as in Sib 5

Updated April 4, 2008 (version 1.20) to allow choice of line type at each position, so you can reverse the dynamics

Updated 1 December 2011 to handle Sib 7 fonts.

Updated 10 January 2012 to allow more line type.

Updated 24 August 2014 to retract lines over barlines and add an option to specify space between 2 lines if no text is used, and to process a single note or the first note in a selection.

Updated 4 February 2014 to fix crash in Sib 5 and 6.

Updated 2 February 2016, adding straight, dotted and dashed lines to the list. These behave differently from the dynamics lines and the horizontal position is not very good, but it is too complex to fix right now. It might at least get you in the ballpark with such lines.

Updated 2 February 2016 to fix not bold text bug

Updated 4 June 2016 fixed some crashing typos when there was no text with the lines.

Plug-in written by Bob Zawalich.

Remove Lyric Extension Lines

Version 01.70.00
Added 14 Dec 2007 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

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

Changes all final syllables or single word lyrics to apply to 1 note, thus removing the extension lines. May be useful if note values have changed.

Updated 17 December 2011. Added ability to center of left justify syllables and ability to remove only durationally short extension lines.

Plug-in written by Bob Zawalich.

Reposition Dynamics

Version 01.07.00
Added 14 Apr 2008 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

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

Processes Expression text and hairpins for \"vocal\" staves, which expect dynamics to go above, rather than below the staff. It will also move dynamics on non-vocal staves to the bottom of the staff.

If it finds dynamics in the wrong location relative to the center staff line, it will move them to the corresponding location on the opposite side of the center staff line.

This is useful for scores with a mix of vocal and non vocal staves.

It does not change the text or line style, but moves the objects as you would by dragging them by hand; \"Reset Position\" will restore them to their original position. It will not change the position of objects that are already on the correct side of the center line.

Plug-in written by Bob Zawalich.

Trombone Slide Positions

Added 21 Apr 2008 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

For use with Sibelius 3.x, Sibelius 4, Sibelius 4.1, Sibelius 5, Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5 and Sibelius 8.x

Adds possible slide positions for selected Bb/F trombone notes in the range from F an octave below the bass stave to the Bb an octave above it.

You can specify which voices should be marked.

Plug-in written by Ian Cugley.

Create Add Text Plugin

Version 01.82.00
Added 21 Nov 2008 (last updated 15 Feb 2015)

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

Lets you create and install a new plug-in that, when run, will insert a piece of text into the score. The properties of the text are taken from text (staff text, system text, or lyrics) that is selected when Create Add Text Plugin is run. If you assign a shortcut to the new plug-in, you will have, in effect, a way to assign a shortcut to an individual piece of formatted text.

The generated plugin will be put by default in the "Add Text" subfolder of your user Plug-ins folder. The name will include the text style and some of the text.

Updated 9 August 2011 for Sib 7 user file location compatibility

In order to assign shortcuts to the newly-created plug-ins, you must first close and restart Sibelius, so the new plug-ins will be loaded.

Updated 13 December 2010 to transfer the show/hide state in both the score and parts (Sib 6 only). The zip file now contains 2 plugins one for Sibelius 5 only, the other for Sibelius 6 and later.

Updated 22 Oct 2011 to restore the Sib 5 version

Updated 6 February 2012 to fix crash when choosing system text.

Updated 12 Oct 2012 to reduce restrictions on user-defined text.

Updated 14 Feb 2015 to restore the Sib 5 version again...

Add Pitch Class to Notes

Version 02.51.00
Added 13 Dec 2008 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

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

Adds pitch class numbers for selected notes, including quartertones.

You can specify which pitch to use for pitch class 0, and also mark classes 10 and 11 so they will not be confused with 1 and 0.

All pitch classes with be assigned to the voice \\\'all voices\\\'. If you use Lyrics style, each voice will be assigned to a different lyrics verse (voice 1 = Lyrics line 1, etc.), so the voices will be at different heights and may be filtered for, using the text style.

Updated 2 April 2009 for internal code cleanup

Find and Replace Text for Sibelius 5

Added 17 Mar 2009 (last updated 21 May 2009)

For use with Sibelius 5

This is an update of the plugin that ships with Sibelius version 5.25. The update fixes a problem encountered with processing lyrics, and also allows colors other than Red for coloring changes, and lets you run the plugin without showing the dialog after the first time it is run in a Sibelius session.

It also fixes a problem where all text in all bars that included selected text would be processed. Now only text which is actually selected will be processed.

Changes made by Bob Zawalich

In Sibelius 6 use the shipping version of this plugin.

Plug-in written by Stefan Behrisch.

Add Note Names To Noteheads White

Version 02.05.00
Added 08 Apr 2009 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

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

Works like the shipping Add Note Names to Noteheads plugin, writing the name of a note inside the notehead using the Opus Note Names font.

It also creates a stemless white colored note behind each note to block out the staff and leger lines.

You must install the included House Style, Opus Note Names No Leger.lib in your user House Style Folder (located at the same level as your user Plugins folder).

It will only work on a file that has notes only in voice 1. The visible notes will be changed to be in voice 3 (the white notes are in voice 1). You can rerun the plugin if you need to change notes that have been transposed.

Updated 29 June 2009 to handle notes within tuplets

Updated 17 November 2011. If running in Sibelius 6.1 or later, you must install the included House Style, Opus Note Names No Leger 6-1.lib in your user House Style Folder.

If you are running Sibelius 7.1.2 or later, you will be better results by using the shipping Add Note Names To Noteheads Plugin (Notations - Noteheads - Add Note Names).

Plug-in written by Bob Zawalich.

Insert Current Dynamics

Version 01.30.00
Added 16 Apr 2009 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

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

Will insert the most recent dynamic (expression text) into all selected bars, or optionally into selected bars that follow a system or page break, double barline, or Rehearsal Mark. The dynamics may be parenthesized.

It cannot determine where a system or page starts, but if you lock the score or put in explicit page and system breaks, dynamics can effectively be placed at the start of systems.

If you want bold expressions, you must specify a Music text font. Valid fonts include Opus Text and Inkpen2 Text.

Updated 26 May 2009 to allow dynamics to be placed in the first bar of a system or page, even if the file is unlocked, when run in Sibelius 6.

Updated 9 August 2011 for Sib 7 font compatibility

Updated 23 Oct 2011. Music text font now initialized to the score music text font.

Plug-in written by Bob Zawalich.

Scale Numbers

Added 26 Oct 2009 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

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

This plug-in allows you to scale all numbers (with text) in a selection. It is ideal for scaling tempo and metronome markings in one automated swoop. In addition to being able to process both staff and system text, there is also a rounding function.

Plug-in written by Roman Molino Dunn.

Verse Styles For Lyrics

Version 01.15.0
Added 10 Apr 2010 (last updated 03 Dec 2014)

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

Combines selected lyrics that are of approximately the same vertical spacing into a single lyrics text style, aligned at the same position.

It will not work well if there are overlapping lyrics, or the heights of lyrics in a verse have greatly different vertical positions, or there are different numbers of verses in different parts of the score. You can run the plugin on sub-selections of the score to get around some of those problems.

It can create up to 5 lines of lyrics, with styles Lyrics Line 1 to 5. Only lyrics below the staff are processed.

This plugin may be particularly useful after using Photoscore to read in a score with multiple verses of lyrics, as Photoscore puts all lyrics in the style Lyrics Line 1. It is intended to be used to prepare a score for running the Fix Photoscore Lyrics plugin.

Please proofread carefully after running the plugin.

Updated 2 December 2014 to allow plugin to run in Sibelius 5.

Plug-in written by Bob Zawalich.

Add Note Names

Added 02 May 2010 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

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

This is an update of the plugin that ships with Sibelius 6.2 and earlier. The update allows it to process notes selected with a multiple (non-passage) selection. Earlier versions would select the entire score if there were not a passage selection. So now you can filter notes and run the plugin on the result.

One small quirk is that if you select only some notes of a chord, the chord will be processed as if it were completely selected. However, unselected single notes in a bar will not be processed (unlike earlier versions).

Tin Whistle Fingering

Version 01.16.00
Added 19 Oct 2010 (last updated 24 Jul 2015)

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

Tin Whistle Fingering adds fingering diagrams, which are characters in a special font mapped to specific pitches, under each selected note.

The font Tin Whistle Tab was designed and donated by Blayne Chastain for this plugin, and can be freely distributed.

The zip file contains the plugin, the font, and 2 PDF documents describing the plugin and the font.

Updated 29 October 2010. Now skip notes that are tied to and adds an option to use a fingering only the first time a note appears in the selection.

Updated 23 April 2015. Added more pitch range (4 octaves) and a button to reset the D whistle setting if used for another instrument.

Updated 30 April 2015 to add in a missing default preference value to restore.

Updated 24 July 2015 to add another PDF file explaining how to use the plugin with different fonts

Add Fingering To Notes For Sibelius 5

Version 01.08.00
Added 02 Feb 2011 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

For use with Sibelius 5, Sibelius 7.5 and Sibelius 8.x

Adds fingering numbers immediately to the left of noteheads. Type the numbers you want separating numbers with spaces or commas (or both). Numbers will be applied to selected notes in the order in which they were selected. For chords, notes are always processed from low to high pitch.

The fingering avoids accidentals if Magnetic Layout is on in Sibelius 6. You can adjust the horizontal and vertical offsets, and these values are remembered across Sibelius sessions.

Updated 22 August 2010. The original plugin is in the zip file renamed Add Fingering To Notes Sib 5, and it will run on Sib 5 or later. Add Fingering To Notes will now only run on Sib 6 or later, and the interface has changed so you see a keypad with numbers. Move the dialog so you can see the selected notes, then click a number button to add that number in fingering text to the next note in the selection.

Updated 23 August 2010. The Sib 5 plugin now allows you to specify the text style used for fingering. Some styles, like Expression, do not work well because their Magnetic Layout settings keep them out of the staff, so choose carefully. The Sib 6 version adds the ability to enter the fingering number 0.

Updated 2 February 2011. Placed separately from the Sib 6 version. This version is unlikely to be updated in the future except for bug fixes.

Trace MIDI Messages

Version 01.37.00
Added 19 May 2016 (last updated 16 Aug 2016)

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

Writes the text and score location of selected MIDI messages (that start with ~) to the plugin trace window. For Note on (~N) and Note Off (~O) messages, it also translated pitch numbers to note names.

This can be useful when you have a "cloud" of MIDI messages, as when you use the Harp Gliss or Cresc/Dim plugins.

Updated 19 May 2016 to add a blank line between blocks

Updated 16 August 2016. Added blank line between messages for each bar.
