Filter Notes Tied To - Simple

Version 01.20.00
Added 03 Nov 2008 (last updated 29 Jun 2018)

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

Filters notes in a selection that are the targets of a tied note, i.e., if one note is tied to a second note, the filter will select the second note.

This plugin will not catch all notes that are tied to. It assumes that the note with the ties immediately precedes its target, and so will miss arpeggiated notes tied to a block chord. It will also miss notes tied to from a note in a different voice. It general, for simple cases it works well, but please check all output carefully, and do not assume it is always correct.

This was intended for the use of selecting target notes in guitar tab, to make it easier to hide them, but there are likely many other uses as well. The Filter Other plugin has an option to filter tied notes, and these may find uses in tandem.

Updated 27 May 2010. A dialog was added, along with the ability to deselect as well as select notes.

Updated 5 April 2010. Changed initial test to allow plugin to run in Sibelius 5.25.

Updated 9 May 2016. Reworked the way tied to notes are calculated for better results and faster execution.

Updated 28 June 2018. Added option to filter tied-to notes only if the note was the first note in the first bar in a system. This helps find notes that are tied-to across system and page breaks.
