Filter By Accidentals

Version 01.36.00
Added 02 Sep 2011 (last updated 07 May 2019)

For use with Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x, Sibelius 18.x, Sibelius 19.x, Sibelius 20.x and Sibelius 21.x

Lets you filter either notes or Sib6-style chord symbols (not legacy chord symbols) based on the accidentals.

It could be handy as a pre-step for converting, for example, all sharps to flats, or for processing chord symbols with double accidentals, or filtering quartertones.

It has an option to select only the notes that have visible accidentals.

Updated 14 July 2013 to use built-in test for visible accidental when running in Sibelius 7.1.3 or later.

Updated 16 June 2016. Added ability to filter note roots as well as accidentals. This is mostly useful with quartertones, as it is the only way to filter all the E-quarter-flats in a selection.

Updated 7 May 2019. Version 01.36.00. Added ability to filter Triple Accidentals (which should never appear in a Sibelius score, but do). Follow with Browse Selected Objects to find any notes with triple accidentals.
