Convert Legacy Chord Symbols

Version 01.40.40
Added 23 Jun 2009 (last updated 23 Feb 2019)

For use with Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x, Sibelius 18.x, Sibelius 19.x, Sibelius 20.x and Sibelius 21.x

Converts "legacy" text chord symbols to Sib 6-style chord symbols, or Sib 6 chords to legacy text chord symbols.

Updated 9 August 2011 for Sib 7 dialog control changes

Updated 8 September 2012 adding option to use plain text rather than formatted text when converting to Legacy chord symbols.

Updated 1 February 2016. Added code to retain the horizontal and vertical offsets of the original text or chord symbol objects. Also made the display of the number converted at the end of the plugin a dialog option. Internally, the code was restructured to move most of the processing out of the Run routine into ProcessSelection, and the check for an empty selection is now made before the dialog appears. This should have no effect on the output.

Updated 27 November 2017. Moved check for chords symbols in selection to after the dialog so the setting for which type to look for could be set by the user. Otherwise one combination would be impossible without selecting entire score.

Updated 2 December 2018. Version 01.40.00. Add support for some new chord symbol fonts.

Updated 4 December 2018. Version 01.40.20. Added option to select all converted symbols at the end of the plugin.

Updated 23 February 2019. Version 01.40.40. Add support for some new chord symbol fonts.
