Ties Into Second Ending

Version 01.06.00
Added 14 Jun 2018 (last updated 17 Aug 2018)

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

This plugin fakes ties into a second or later ending by turning a note into a tuplet with a hidden short first note tied to a note that appears to be the original duration. The first note and the triplet brackets are hidden, so it appears as if the visible note is tied from nothing. The note that starts the tie is given the notehead style HeadlessStemlessSilent, which the plugin will derive from its associated data file if it is not defined in the score.

The data file is included in the zip file, and the installer will copy it into the same folder where the plugin is installed.

At the end, the visible note(s) will be selected. To adjust the tie length use Shift+Alt/Option+Right to change the bar width. You can also adjust the horizontal position of the invisible note. Do not Reset Note Spacing.

Updated 17 August 2017. Rebuilt with slightly different tuplet mechanism so tied notes are offset less that before. You will still need to make horizintal adjustments by hand.
