Version 01.01.00
Added 26 Apr 2010 (last updated 21 Feb 2020)

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

Deletes all notes, tuplets and slurs in any fully selected bars, replacing them with a bar rest, but leaving any text attached to the bars.

Note that if there are lyrics attached to the resulting bar rest, they cannot be dragged. You need to have notes or rests in a bar for lyrics to be moveable.

Updated 21 March 2015 to rename the plugin which was formerly called Delete Notes Only, which was misleading.
