Find and Replace Multi-Filter

Version 02.02.00
Added 31 Dec 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, Sibelius 20.x and Sibelius 21.x

Lets you set up a set of find/replace/text style filter combinations that can be used to call Find and Replace Text plugin multiple times.

Like all "global replace" schemes, it runs the risk of replacing something you had already replaced, so you need to be careful about replacing in the correct order.

The plugin lets you set up multiple sets of replacement texts, and for each set you can specify a text style to filter on before running Find and Replace Text. The plugin remembers the original selection and restores it after each pass, so the filtering always works on the possibly altered original text.

The list of text styles is a small subset of all styles, but there is an Add Text Style button that lets you add more styles, and these are remembered across Sib sessions.

You can get 15 sets on a page, and can get more pages as needed, so there is no limit, except perhaps time.

It is possible to set up and save and restore multiple "text sets", so if you want to run a certain set of replacements on one score and another set on another score you do not have to retype them all.

Updated 19 October 2011 to use Std fonts in Sib 7.
