Add Notehead Names Graphics

Version 02.20.00
Added 10 Jan 2012 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

For use with 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

Adds notehead names to selected notes using the new Sibelius 7 ability to create symbols from graphics files. The result is that staff lines and ledger lines will not show through the noteheads as they have in the past.

This is a variant on the shipping Add Note Names to Noteheads, written by Neil Sands.

The plugin will import the attached House Style, Opus Note Names Graphics.lib. If you use Plugins - Install, the House Style will be automatically stored in the user House Style Folder; if installing manually, please copy it there./p>

This plugin will only work in Sibelius 7 and later, and scores that use graphics-based symbols will only work in Sibelius 7 or later.

This plugin will not convert existing scores that used the named noteheads from Add Note Names to Noteheads. You can use the downloadable plugin Remove Named Noteheads to create a score that can use this plugin.

If you are running Sibelius 7.1.2 or later, you will get the same results by using the shipping Add Note Names To Noteheads Plugin (Notations - Noteheads - Add Note Names).

Updated 21 May 2012 adding option (and additional house style) to allow noteheads that do not show accidentals. This feature is not available in the shipping plugin. Note that you cannot mix and match the styles in a single score.
