Convert Text to Comments

Added 16 Aug 2009 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

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

This plug-in, for use with Sibelius 6, converts all text of a specified style in a score (including any or all versions) to Comments. It extracts all of the text types present in the score and allows you to create colorful, maximized or minimized, comments. We've all tried making our own comments in earlier versions of Sibelius using a special text style, so what now when you open the score in Sibelius 6? Painless remedy.

"I have a number of scores from the opera Kiravanu that I wrote with James Humberstone made in Sibelius 5, with comments made by using boxed text on an added staff. I wanted to both convert these in the scores to Sibelius 6 comments and also create a list to review as we consider revising the opera. With 'Convert Text to Comments,' I can do both in one quick run." - Mary Elizabeth
