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, 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

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.
