Beamed Note Groups

Version 01.06.00
Added 18 Jul 2016 (last updated 27 Dec 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

Makes selected notes (8th notes and smaller) into a beamed group. It interrupts the groups at rests, barlines, long notes, or tuplets.

It skips notes under tuplets and notes with feathered beams.

The plugin cannot set the ends of groups to stop at rests. When the plugin concludes, the rests will be selected. Without changing the selection, go to keypad layout 3 and click the No Beam button.

Updated 27 December 2019. Version 01.06.00. Added options to beam in tuplets and across barlines and rests. The plugin will usually be able to beam across deleted rests, which is not usually allowed. These new features will not always work, for unknown reasons, but they are probably worth trying if you cannot get beaming to work.
