Note Spacing

Version 01.52.00
Added 09 Oct 2012 (last updated 28 Aug 2018)

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

Apply a Note Spacing preset, a set of predefined Note Spacing Rules, whose values can be scaled by a percentage, to a selection. The plugin will apply the spacing rules, respace, then restore the original score spacing. The preset can also be applied to the entire score, with optional respacing.

For a non-passage selection, any bar containing selected notes will be respaced.

The plugin requires Sibelius 7.1.3 or later. A PDF document describing the plugin is included with the zip file, and it is recommended reading.

Updated 28 August 2018. Version 01.52.00. Removed adjustment that caused values to be rounded incorrectly and could add incorrect cumulative spacing offsets.

The plugin comes with several predefined presets (thanks to Robert Puff and Bill Holab for these, and to Neil Sands for the Proportional Spacing settings). You can also edit or create presets. The Current score and Defaults presets may not be edited nor deleted.

This plugin is dedicated to Robert Puff and Daniel Spreadbury.
