Beam 3 Eighths In Common Time

Version 01.10.00
Added 12 Mar 2012 (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

Changes the beaming of consecutive 8th notes/quavers in common time (4/4 or C).

This only affect groups of 3 notes and a rest that start on beat 1 or beat 3, and have the rest as the first or last member of the group.

The plugin can beam the 3-8th notes together, or split 3 beamed notes into rest/single note/2 beamed notes or 2 beamed notes/single note/rest.

It should work correctly whether beam to/from rests is on or off. This plugin requires a passage (box) selection of full bars.

Updated 15 March 2012 to add ability to trace changed beam groups.
