Show Hide Instrument Names

Version 01.59.00
Added 04 Oct 2010 (last updated 29 May 2018)

For use with 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

This plugin changes the settings for Engraving Rules > Instrument so that the instrument names are either all set to None (Hide) or to Full at start, Short subsequently, and Full at sections (Show).

With luck, you will never have to use this. If you happen to be given a lot of scores that are not set the way you want, this can save some time. Works on the current score, all open scores, or a folder of scores.

Updated 28 May 2018. Various improvements and bug fixes.
