Position Rehearsal Marks

Version 02.01.10
Added 02 Apr 2014 (last updated 05 Aug 2019)

For use with Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x, Sibelius 18.x, Sibelius 19.x and Sibelius 20.x

This plugin centers Rehearsal Marks at the start of a system horizontally over the clef.

It works in a full score, in each dynamic part of a score, or in the currently active part in an open score. It can process a folder of scores. Open scores are neither saved nor closed.

All bars in the score are normally processed. The selection is only used when processing the active part or score in the current score.

The plugin does not affect the vertical position of the Rehearsal Mark; you can adjust this by changing the Default Position settings for the Rehearsal Mark text style, outside of the plugin.(The plugin does not have access to these settings, and so cannot do it itself).

A PDF file explaining how the plugin is used is included in the zip file.

Updated 29 October 2014 to fix a bug and dialog layout when running in Sibelius 6.

Updated 28 May 2018. Bug fixes and tuning.

Updated 21 June 2019. Version 01.87.00. Text that is not attached to the first beat is now moved to the first beat before adjusting.

Updated 25 July 2019. Version 02.00.00. Does a better job by default, and it also puts a checkbox on the groups of offsets, so that you can keep the default values around without having to recalculate them when you want alignment to the barline. There is also a Reset button to restore the original settings.

It will now also optionally left align selected text, lines and symbols to the clef or barline, and handles the different spacing in bars that have just a bar rest.

As before, it will only align objects if the first bar of a system.

The PDF file included in the zip file has been updated to reflect the changes.

Updated 5 August 2019. Refined handling of Lines and made improvements to how Time Signatures are dealt with. Updated code that allows calling by other plugins.
