There It Is!

Version 01.49.00
Added 09 Jul 2014 (last updated 08 Dec 2018)

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

This is one of a group of plugins designed to provide sight-impaired users with access to Sibelius score objects.

It displays a list of types of objects present in the current selection. If the selection is a system selection (purple box), the list will include system objects, such as Title text, Rehearsal Marks, and Special Barlines.

When an object type is chosen, another list is filled with the objects of that type present in the selection, with their staff, bar, and position in bar locations noted. Choosing OK will select the object, and bring the selected object on screen.

Objects can be displayed sorted by Bar (the default), so you can see all the objects in a single bar for all the staves, or you can sort the objects by Staff, so you can see the objects across all the bars in each staff.

A View button can be used to browse to objects without taking the dialog down. This would probably be useful only for sighted users.

This plugin is similar to the What Is Where? plugin, with navigation capabilities.

There is a Help button and an Options button.

Some objects tend to be slow to gather and display, so the Options dialog has options to skip such objects, or to ask if you want to display them. By default, the plugin asks to show staff text, and skips slurs, notes and rests, and bar rests.

Updated 30 July 2014 minor bug fix

Updated 19 December 2014 to allow non-passage selections, so the results of a filter could be navigated to.

Updated 13 December 2016.Added articulations to notes, added Trace button, added score file name, part name and transposing score state to dialog title bar. Also added duration to Note/Rest listing.

Updated 28 May 2018. Speed up via progress bar and other code.

Updated 12 June 2018. Cleanup, separate listing for trills, wider dialog to avoid text truncation.

Updated 8 December 2018. Version 01.49.00. Added log file with new options. Added Trace All command to trace all lists at once, optionally tracing to the log file. Optimized tracing, both for log file and trace window, so it is significantly faster. Improved handling of Time Signatures. If there are Bar Number changes, both the Displayed (external) and Consecutive (internal) bar numbers are shown, since the external bar numbers may not be unique.
