Adjust Start Repeat Barline

Version 01.14.00
Added 10 Sep 2016 (last updated 10 Sep 2016)

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

Looks for Start Repeat barlines at the start of a bar, which are preceded by a visible Key Signature but not a Time Signature. You can add horizontal offsets to such barlines to give more space between the barline and Key Signature. These offsets will be removed if you reset note spacing so run the plugin late in your layout process.

You can also just trace the locations of potentially mispositioned barlines without changing any.

All potentially mispositioned barlines will be selected at the end of the plugin. You can use the Selected Objects option of the Go To plugin to browse among the selected barlines.

This was written to correct key signature and start repeat barline conflicts in Sibelius 8.4.2. These are most pronounced in fonts like Inkpen2 and Reprise and in flat keys.
