Remove Named Noteheads

Version 01.05.00
Added 10 Jan 2012 (last updated 22 Nov 2016)

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

This plugin make a copy of a score that uses noteheads generated by the Add Note Names to Noteheads plugin, and strips out the notehead definitions. This will allow you to use the Add Notehead Names Graphics plugin in Sibelius 7 to created named noteheads using graphics-based symbols that are opaque, so the staff line does not show through the notehead.

If the old notehead definitions are in the score, Add Notehead Names Graphics will use those, rather than generating its own definitions, and the staff lines will still show through.

This is a hack, and though it will work, the author apologizes for not having a better solution.

Updated 22 November 2016. Added ability to also remove Colored Notehead Styles.
