Invert Chords

Version 01.07.00
Added 12 Sep 2018 (last updated )

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

Transposes the top or bottom note in each selected chord by one or more octaves to make inversions of the chords.

Any chord with one or more notes selected will be inverted. It is recommended that only one voice should be processed at a time. If multiple voices are processed, each voice is treated as a separate chord. Chords in the same voice on multiple staves can be processed as a group if you use a passage selection. Only chords with 2 or more notes are processed.

You can select one or more notes in a chord, and that chord will be processed as if the entire chord were selected, so you can select a number of non-contiguous chords and process them at once. If you want to process notes in multiple staves as a unit, you must make a passage selection of the notes, and choose "All staves".

The zip file contains both Invert Chords, which transposes the bottom note up, and Invert Chords Down, which transposes the top note down, so you can assign each plugin to a shortcut. They are otherwise identical.
