Bracket Notes

Version 01.20.10
Added 16 May 2013 (last updated 18 Feb 2019)

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

Bracket Notes will add a vertical bracket line to the left of selected notes. If more than 2 notes in a chord are selected, the highest and lowest notes will be connected.

It cannot make horizontal space for added lines, so you will need to do that manually. The vertical position of the line will usually be correct, but you will likely need horizontal adjustments.

This can be very useful for adding double-stop indicators in string parts.

The code that figures out the stem direction for notes in Sibelius 6 was graciously provided by Neil Sands, and I thank him for allowing me to include it in this plugin.

Updated 18 February 2019. Version 01.20.00. In Sib 7.1.3 or later, lines added to the first note or a bar will cause the bar to be respacaed to avoid the barline.

Updated 18 February 2019. Version 01.20.10. Increased dialog size to avoid text truncation on Macs.
