Gap Before Bar

Version 01.63.00
Added 10 Mar 2014 (last updated 22 Feb 2020)

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

Optionally traces bars that contain non-zero gaps before bars, or resets such gaps to zero. Can process the current score, all open scores, or a folder of scores.

The entire score is always processed, regardless of selection. To reset specific gaps, run the plugin to trace the location, and reset manually with the Inspector.

The plugins requires Sibelius 7.5 or later.

Updated 21 May 2019 Version 01.61.00.Redid the dialog. When running on the current score the plugin will process only the bars in a passage selection; in other cases it will always process the entire score. You can now reset Gap Before and Gap After to zero separately, and can change the values of Gap Before or Gap After for the first selected bar in each system when multiple staves are selected in a passage selection. A PDF explaining how this works in detail will be downloaded when the plugin is installed. Most of the PDF information is available using the Help button.

Updated 28 August 2019. Version 01.63.00. Added the ability to process parts within a score, since changing the gaps in the full score does not affect parts and vice versa. Also added an option to indent (using Gap Before) at the start of a score and at the start of each movement, as indicated by some options. PDF and Help explain details.
