Change Case

Version 01.60.00
Added 06 Oct 2007 (last updated 26 Nov 2017)

For use with 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

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.

Unlike earlier versions, multiple line text will be retained as will any internal formatting (fonts or bold/italic, etc.).

Updated March 26, 2008 to allow changing the case of non-English characters, thanks to the MakeChangecase plugin (included in the zip file) which was generously contributed by Andrew Moschou. These include accented, Greek, and Cyrillic characters.

Please note: do not use this plugin on bold Expression text or chord symbols, or any other text that uses a font that does not have matching upper and lower case letters in the traditional locations.

Updated February 7, 2009 to change the Instrument Names code to only use special flat accidentals for lower case b if it follows A, B, D, or E.

Updated April 20, 2009 to put the MakeChangeCase plugin back in the zip file

Updated 29 Sept 2011 to rename file on download page.

Updated 26 November 2017. Changed list of text styles to be the styles used in the current score. Now allows a non passage selection to be used when processing text styles. Automatically skips Dynamics text.

Now requires Sibelius 6 or later. For earlier version use Change Case for Sibelius 4.

Plug-in written by Bob Zawalich and Andrew Moschou.
