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, Sibelius 8.x, Sibelius 18.x, Sibelius 19.x, Sibelius 20.x, Sibelius 21.x, Sibelius 22.x, Sibelius 23.x and Sibelius 24.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.
