Respell Chord Symbols

Version 01.12.00
Added 09 May 2013 (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 and Sibelius 21.x

This plugin will respell chord symbol names, changing sharps to flats, and so on. Notes and key signatures are not affected.

There are options for how certain chord roots are respelled. Chord root names with accidentals (such as Eb or C#) will change to a natural or single accidental. Natural roots change depending on the option: they can be set to never change, to change to a single accidental (E, F, B, or C), or any natural root can change, possibly producing a double accidental.

Options are retained over Sibelius sessions, and the settings dialog may be hidden after it appears the first time the plugin is run in a Sibelius session.

There are options to respell as sharps and flats, and all flats as sharps.
