Tidy Score

Version 1.1
Added 11 Aug 2014 (last updated 17 Jun 2015)

For use with Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x, Sibelius 18.x, Sibelius 19.x, Sibelius 20.x, Sibelius 21.x, Sibelius 22.x, Sibelius 23.x and Sibelius 24.x

This plugin runs a number of Sibelius options which tidy up and optimise the appearance of a score.

It may be necessary to drag the first stave down to make space for the title after running it, but overall it should improve the overall appearance. If the effect is not what is desired, then it is, of course, undoable.

It does the same as the following commands in Sibelius 7 (and their equivalent in Sibelius 6):

  1. Layout > Reset Space Above
  2. Layout > Reset Space Below
  3. Appearance > Reset > Position
  4. Appearance > Reset Note Spacing
  5. Layout > Optimize
1.1 Update: minor improvements
