Convert Spaces To Units

Version 01.07.00
Added 06 Nov 2009 (last updated 14 Aug 2016)

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

Convert Spaces To Units will convert fixed units like inches, mm, or points to or from "spaces" based units as used internally by Sibelius. (One "space" is defined as 1/4 of the staff height).

This plugin will probably only have niche uses, but if you are using wildcards that use space units, or are writing plugins, or are just trying to figure out how many x units in the General tab of the Properties window will make an inch, it can come in very handy.

This plugin requires Sibelius 6.1

Updated 8 September 2010 to correct invalid conversion of points.

Updated 14 August 2016 to prepare for multiple staff sizes.
