Simplify Tied-To Notes

Version 01.11.00
Added 30 Mar 2010 (last updated 29 Jul 2017)

For use with Sibelius 5, Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x and Sibelius 18.x

Selects notes that are tied to (notes that are immediately preceded by a note of the same pitch, in the same voice, with a tie), and removes any articulations and cautionary accidentals on these notes.

Notes tied to from different voices or notes tied to but separated by other notes, will not be detected or processed.

Updated 15 August 2011 to remove brackets accidentals as well as cautionaries.

Updated 18 January 2012 to remove articulations in chords only if all the notes are tied to.

Updated 9 May 2016. Reworked the way tied to notes are calculated for better results and faster execution.

Updated 29 July 2017 Removed debug traces which slowed it down greatly
