Browse Selected Objects

Version 01.86.00
Added 18 Jul 2018 (last updated 30 Nov 2021)

For use with Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x, Sibelius 18.x, Sibelius 19.x, Sibelius 20.x and Sibelius 21.x

This plugin lets you navigate through a set of selected objects, typically those created by a filter.

Change the list selection with the mouse or arrow keys to bring the chosen object into view. By default the entire bar will be selected for better visibility. The score selection will only move when the bar changes.

There are a number of options for sorting the list and viewing different objects, and if Run Plugins By Name is installed you can run another plugin on the objects currently viewed in the score.

When the plugin ends, the last viewed object will be visible with options for what will be selected.

Updated 27 July 2018 Version 01.60.20. Fixed crash when canceling out of search. Some code cleanup.

Updated 13 August 2018. Version 01.80.00. Added the ability to remove objects from the list and to make a score selection fro what remains in the list so that a plugin could be run on that selection (thanks to Tom Owen for the suggestions). I also added another, simpler dialog, for straightforward browsing. You can easily switch between the dialogs.

Updated 28 August 2018. Version 01.81.00. Added text to lyric description and put text in quotes.

Updated 30 August 2018. Version 01.83.00. Handle deleted objects better. Change text in descriptions to use [] rather than quotes for technical reasons.

Updated 3 September 2018. Version 01.84.00. Added count of objects to listbox.

Updated 11 July 2021. Version 01.85.2021. Fixed crash if run with no actual objects selected, such as bar number fields or default barlines.

Updated 30 November 2021. Version 01.86.00. Changed to have the simple browser dialog come up by default, rather than the advanced version. Also removed the call on first startup that asked if you wanted to save the selection. It saves it quietly in the background if Save And Restore Selection is available. The intention is to make the plugin less intimidating for simple browsing, while the full editing features are still available with the Show Advanced Options button.
