Display Accidentals In Selected Notes

Version 01.11.00
Added 22 Aug 2013 (last updated 24 Jan 2018)

For use with Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x and Sibelius 18.x

Hide, unhide, or make the accidentals in selected notes visible. The noteheads must be selected, not just the accidentals.

In Sibelius 7.1.3 or later, the plugin can hide or force only accidentals that are visible, so you can select all notes in a passage. In Sibelius 6, you must select the notes you want individually, or the plugin will change the accidental style on all selected notes.

With cross-staff beamed notes, even in Sibelius 7, Sibelius sometimes gets confused about whether an accidental is visible. If you try to change visible accidentals and they do not change, turn off the visible option and select only the notes whose accidentals you wish to change.

Updated 26 August 2013. Handles selection that include only parts of notes, such as stems, which would crash the plugin. These are now ignored. Also the plugin now respaces the selection at the end.

Updated 17 January 2017 Added option to display accidentals in parentheses.

Updated 23 January 2018 to fix typos
