Go To Comment

Version 01.06.10
Added 26 Apr 2010 (last updated 09 Jul 2021)

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

Provides a list of all comments in a score, optionally filtered by author, and lets you navigate to one of them.

There are 2 modes of operation. In the default mode (with the checkbox on), clicking in the listbox closes the dialog and takes you to the chosen comment. It is very fast if you use the mouse.

If you uncheck the checkbox, changing the selection in the list box brings that comment into view but the dialog stays up until you choose the Go To button. It is what you want if you navigate with arrow keys, and it lets you preview the comments.

The checkbox setting is remembered across Sibelius sessions.

Updated 29 September 2017 Reworked code for better speed in large scores. Also added positioning data to each list entry and added Trace button to write list to trace window.

Updated 10 January 2021. Version 01.05.00. Fixed problem with Line feeds in comment text. Needed to be in a list box and they messed it up. Now replace line feed/carriage return characters with spaces.

Updated 9 July 2021. Version 01.06.00. Fixed bug where the original selection as always restored at the end of the plugin. Now the original selection is restored on Cancel, but otherwise the last comment chosen will be selected at the end.

Updated 9 July 2021. Version 01.06.10. Make a change so that the score will reposition even if score position.follow selection is unchecked.
