Convert Folder To Current Sibelius Version

Version 02.26.00
Added 02 Dec 2010 (last updated 13 Nov 2018)

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

Opens all scores (created in an earlier version of Sibelius) in a specified folder and saves them as scores in the current Sibelius version format.

To use the plug-in, choose Convert Folder of Scores to Current Version, and choose the folder you want to convert.

A simple dialog appears, in which you can specify the destination folder for the exported files, and how to alter the filenames to avoid overwriting the original files. Click OK to confirm your choices.

Updated 9 November 2018. Version 02.25.00. Added an option, on by default, to make the destination folder create subfolders that match the subfolder names in the source folder, so that all the files do not end up in a single folder.

Updated 12 November 2018. Version 02.26.00. Cleanup and better error handling when scores cannot be processed.
