Fill Selection With Slash Notes

Version 01.21.00
Added 15 Aug 2009 (last updated 21 Feb 2019)

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

Adds notes in a chosen voice to the middle staff line in selected bars (even if they are empty). Notes are normally added in voice 1; change this if the bars contain voice 1 notes.

Only type 3 and 4 (slash) noteheads will stay on the middle line in parts for transposing instruments, though other noteheads may be added.

Added notes can be shown only in the score or the part, be hidden, or be cue-sized.

Updated 11 October 2009 to handle instruments with different clefs in concert and transposing scores. (Needs Sib 6.1 for this to work).

Updated 23 February 2018. Added option to hide existing music in selection before adding slash notes. Changed default voice for slashes to be the first voice in the selection with no notes, to avoid unintentional overwriting. Added warning when there are selected notes in the same voice as the slashes to be added. Added slashes are now selected at the end of the plugin.

Updated 9 February 2019. Version 01.20.00. Added notehead styles 27 and 28 to the list of available noteheads.

Updated 20 February 2019. Changed mapping of notehead names and notehead numbers to be able to handle earlier scores and templates that used different numbers for built in notehead styles.
