Replace Ties With Slurs

Version 01.11.00
Added 16 Aug 2018 (last updated )

For use with Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x, Sibelius 18.x, Sibelius 19.x, Sibelius 20.x, Sibelius 21.x, Sibelius 22.x, Sibelius 23.x and Sibelius 24.x

Processes notes in a selection and adds slurs to the processed notes. If the processed notes were tied, the plugin removes the ties.

The intended usage is to use slurs to simulate dotted or dashed ties.

If no adjustments are made, the slurs are added as Sibelius adds them. Their duration is the length of the note to which they are added. They will be placed at the top or bottom of a chord. The plugin can also try to place the slurs close to the notes that had the ties. This is tricky to do. Magnetic Layout is turned off for these slurs. Such added slurs will need to be flipped manually in chords.

This is a blunt instrument. I suggest making a copy of the score with ties so you can compare the results at the end.
