Intelligent Ties

For use with Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7, Sibelius 7.5 and 8

Version 1.0

This is designed to complement the existing tie function in Sibelius and assigning a similar shortcut, such as Shift+Enter on the numeric keypad, is recommended.

It does the following:

  1. If tie is present in any of the selected notes then all ties are removed.
  2. If no ties are present then ties are added to all selected notes where a partner, i.e. an appropriate note to tie to, is also selected.
  3. If a partner is available in another voice, a suppressible dialog appears offering this option.

Because the plugin looks for a partner, this must be selected for a note to be tied to it.
