No Duplicates Paste

Version 1.0
Added 16 Jan 2017 (last updated 16 Jan 2017)

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

For Sibelius 6, 7, 7.5 and 8

This plugin pastes a selection without doubling lines and text when bars are partially selected.

It supersedes the Complete Copy and Paste plugins which are now deprecated.

It has the following advantages over them:

  • Conventional copying is used. No copy plugin is required.
  • It does not affect the draw order of notes, lines or text in any way.
  • It supports multipaste, ie copying a passage as many times as possible in a selected passage.
  • By default, Sibelius has two shortcuts for pasting. Shift+Insert is the least used of the two, so it can be assigned to this plugin if desired.

Many thanks to Bob Zawalich for his encouragement and technical contributions to this plugin.
