Respell Accidentals Allow Doubles

Version 01.20.00
Added 07 Aug 2012 (last updated 21 Feb 2020)

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

Respells selected notes to their enharmonic equivalent (same sounding) spelling. Unlike the Return key in Sibelius, Respell Accidentals Allow Doubles can change a note to a note with a double accidental.

If the key signature contains flats, the plugin favors double flats when starting with a note without an accidental. For other keys (sharp, C/Am or atonal), it favors double sharps.

Quartertones are not respelled.

It is probably going to be most useful if assigned to a keystroke shortcut, so you can run it again quickly if the first respelling is not what you want.

This plugin is dedicated to Daniel Spreadbury and the Sibelius development team.
