Add Work Number to the Top of Page

Added 13 Jul 2010 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

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

This plug-in adds user-specified text to the top of the first page of the score, each part or both. Many font, placement, color and style options are available. Performing groups with many pieces in their "book" can add a unique number (a.k.a. Work or Library Number) to the top of each piece and then sort the music in the book by number. This allows leaders to create set lists by number instead of title. Numbers make it easier for musicians to locate the next piece during "sets" and to quickly find a piece the leader unexpectedly calls that is not on the set list. Also, these numbers are useful for organizing stored music.

Numbers added to parts are in approximately the correct location. Numbers added to the score will require manual vertical adjustment as that canít be controlled through a plug-in at the moment. Please do review each before you print. If the selected text colors are not appearing on screen as expected, go to the Sibelius View menu and ensure Differences in Parts is unchecked.

JazzText and Reprise Rehearsal fonts appear within the special borders those fonts provide. Every other font appears as Sibelius boxed text.
