Fixed Plug-in Shortcuts (Windows only)

Added 03 Sep 2005 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

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

Did you ever want to assign keyboard shortcuts to your favourite plug-ins which do not change each and every time you install a new plug-in or change anything else in your plug-ins folder? If so, the Fixed Shortcuts plug-in is the right tool to use.

Assign from Sibelius one single shortcut to this plug-in, e.g. F5. Whenever Sibelius should decide to scramble shortcuts, only update this single shourtcut, F5 for the Fixed Shortcut plug-in.

You can define up to 26 plug-ins to be called by Fixed Shortcuts. These are accessed with the 26 letters A..Z. Develop your own memorizing scheme, and access your favourite plug-ins with a sequence of three keys which will no longer change. What about:

  • F5 c RET to call Cresc./Dim. Playback
  • F5 r RET to call Remove All Highlights
  • F5 s RET to call Split Bars

Of course you can always read the list on the screen, in case you forgot the chosen shortcut. Defining the 26 favourite plug-ins is only one additional keystroke away.

Now includes a 25% faster sort method which will be of great assistance to Sibelius 4 or 5 users who may have slower processors.

Have you noticed a slight delay every time you use Fixed Plug-in Shortcuts? Do you want to save even more time on Sibelius? Often you just want to rerun the last plug-in that you had selected, such as Cresc./Dim. Playback, Change Dynamics or Insert Current Dynamics. Run Previous Plug-in is the answer. It will immediately open the last plug-in you ran. Give it a shortcut similar to Fixed Plug-in Shortcuts, so if you are using F5 as suggested, why not used F6? Using Sibelius is time consuming and we need to save as much clicking and typing as we can. Even the download is quick (only 691 bytes!).
