Unfold Repeats

Version 01.10.60
Added 16 Oct 2012 (last updated 28 Dec 2016)

For use with Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x, Sibelius 18.x, Sibelius 19.x, Sibelius 20.x and Sibelius 21.x

This plugins requires Sibelius 7.13 or later.

Creates a copy of a score with all repeats written out as separate bars. It uses the ordering shown in Play > Repeats, and will optionally delete any repeat barlines, end lines, and Repeat or Jump text.

User defined text, symbols, and lines will have to be deleted by hand. The plugin will warn if the playback structure indicates there are still repeats after the plugin is run. If playback does not go from start to end, go to the bars where playback changes and delete the objects that are affecting playback.

Updated 28 December 2016. Fixed crash that occurred when a repeated section consisted of a single bar.

The plugin will not run if there are jumps that are not at the end of a bar. It will not run if there are any unreachable bars. It will add time signatures to any irregular bars to avoid problems with the pasting of irregular bars.

There are likely many things that can go wrong, so check the output carefully.

This plugin is gratefully dedicated to Daniel Spreadbury and Michael Eastwood.
