My Plugins

Version 02.1800
Added 26 Jan 2016 (last updated 12 Aug 2021)

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

Provides a list of plugins that can be run using the shortcuts in the list. The list can be edited by the user without editing the plugin itself, using the Customize feature. This lets you add plugins to a list in a specific order which will remain until you customize again. Each of the up to 35 plugins will have a specific one character shortcut (1-9 and a-z) so it should make having a working set of plugins easier to manage.

Updated 10 Feb 2016. Now there will be a set of default shipping plugins that will appear in the list until the list is customized so there will be a starting point.

Updated 3 March 2016. Changes default shipping set. Added options to trace list and import list from a file and sort the list.

Minor change to allow blank lines in the text import file

Updated 16 March 2016 to widen some dialog buttons.

Updated 31 March 2016 to always check for duplicates at startup, not just when customizing

Updated 3 April 2016 to improve an error message

Updated 18 January 2017. Dialog was laid out differently to allow all 35 possible plugins to be listed without scrolling. New option to run plugins just by clicking in the list box or typing a letter was added for Sib 7.1.3 or later.

Updated 8 September 2019. Version 02.10.10. Fixed the option Run Plugin if List Box Changes, which had immediately run the first plugin in the list if run from a keyboard shortcut. There is now a placeholder entry at the start of the list to support that feature. If you assign My Plugins to a keyboard shortcut, you can run any plugin in your list with 2 keystrokes.

Updated 1 July (O Canada) 2021. Version 02.12.00. Fixed unwanted warning message when using the Customize option.

Updated 22 July 2021. Version 01.16.00. Removed "Run if list box changes options, so you will need to press Enter or Run Plugin after selecting from the list. This was changed to avoid rare but dangerous crashes.

The first list box entry (index zero) was once a placeholder which could not be run, but now it is a normal plugin index. There are now 36, rather than 35, available plugins.

Updated 06 August 2021. Version 02.17.00. Improved some error handling.

Updated 12 August 2021. Version 02.18.00. Internal restructuring or code to make it callable by Rerun My Plugins.
