Apply Key Signature to Selection

Version 01.41.00
Added 01 Aug 2005 (last updated 24 Jun 2012)

For use with Sibelius 3.x and Sibelius 4

This plug-in allows you to change key signature for a part of a score, and automatically switches back to the original key signature at the end of the selection. This plug-in can also optionally transpose the selected music into the new key.

Fixes in v1.41.00 (updated 23 March 2004):

  • now handles transpositions by intervals of a double diminished unison (e.g. C# - Cb) correctly.

Fixes in v1.40.2:

  • progress bar added
  • fixed problem with duplicated stopper key signature
  • the transpose checkbox now works; transposing can be turned off
  • will not transpose percussion staves
  • Chord symbol transposition rewritten. Handle parentheses and multi-level slash chords
  • chord validation using internal parser removed; allows more chords to be handled
  • some help text updated.

Sibelius 5 can do this without a plugin.
