Create Add Line Plugin

Version 01.57.00
Added 14 Dec 2010 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

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

Lets you create and install a new plug-in that, when run, will insert a line into the score. The properties of the line are taken from a line that is selected when Create Add Line Plugin is run. If you assign a shortcut to the new plug-in, you will have, in effect, a way to assign a shortcut to an individual line with specific properties.

The generated plugin will be put by default in the Add Line subfolder of your user Plug-ins folder (the plugin may create this subfolder). The name will include the line style.

In order to assign shortcuts to the newly-created plug-ins, you must first close and restart Sibelius, so the new plug-ins will be loaded.
