Remove Previous Ties and Remove Final Tied Notes

Version 01.06.00
Added 23 Feb 2010 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

For use with Sibelius 5, Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x, Sibelius 18.x, Sibelius 19.x, Sibelius 20.x, Sibelius 21.x, Sibelius 22.x, Sibelius 23.x and Sibelius 24.x

These plugins offer different ways of dealing with notes tied across a barline after using the Sibelius 6 R (Repeat) command.

Given a single selected note or chord that is tied to:

Remove Previous Ties removes ties from the previous note or chord in the same voice, if any, and leaves the note or chord following the barline selected.

Remove Final Tied Notes deletes the note or chord after the barline, removes the tie from the previous note or chord, and selects the previous note or chord

In both cases, the final note is selected and is ready for further note input, so if you assign the plugin to a shortcut (I found shift-R to be handy), you can remove the tie or tied note with one keystroke and continue inputting notes without having to reselect a note.

Either plugin may be used; your workflow can determine which method you prefer.
