Bracket Notes

Version 01.18.00
Added 16 May 2013 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

For use with Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5 and Sibelius 8.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.
