Replace Trill Symbols with Trill Lines

Added 18 Apr 2009 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

For use with Sibelius 5, Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5 and Sibelius 8.x

This plug-in replaces trill symbols that don’t play back with trill lines that do playback. It handles the standard trill symbol “tr” as well as the bracketed trill symbol “(tr)”, which are replaced with a trill line without the wiggly line. If there is no initial selection, the user is given a choice of replacing every trill symbol or canceling the operation.

This plug-in is useful if you receive a score from another copyist that used trill symbols or for scores imported into Sibelius from some other programs.
