Find Irregular And Misfilled Bars

Version 01.08.00
Added 22 Apr 2007 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

For use with Sibelius 4, Sibelius 4.1, 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

This plug-in displays (in the plug-in trace window) any bars whose length and time signature do not match (irregular bars), and also any misfiled bars, which are bars that have missing rests, so that the sum of the lengths of the notes and rests (in each voice) do not match the length of the bar.

Misfilled bars can come from deleting rests, or when using scores generated by an errant plug-in or file converter.

Updated 2 May 2007: the plug-in now handles grace notes and notes within tuplets.

Updated 21 Feb 2013: Plugin now treats completely empty bars (no notes, rests, tuplets or bar rests in any voice as misfilled. It also handles misfilled tuplets better.
