Align Objects To Barline

Version 01.21.00
Added 11 Jul 2019 (last updated 05 Aug 2019)

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

Moves selected Text or Symbols close to a barline. Aligning right moves an object to the end of its current bar, aligning left moves it to the end of the previous bar, which is the closest it can get to a barline.

If an object is in the first bar in a system, left alignment will move it to the first beat following the left barline in the same bar to prevent it moving to the end of the previous system, unless the checkbox is set to force all objects to the end of the previous bar.

It is important to check moved objects in parts, where system breaks may be different from the full score. Check also if you change the number of bars in a system to be sure a move text does not go to the previous system. Objects already aligned will not be moved.

Only Text and Symbol objects are processed.

Updated 27 July 2019. Version 01.10.00. Minor changes to improve calling Position Rehearsal Mark plugin.

Updated 5 August 2019. Version 01.21.00. Added ability to process lines, including the ability to align both ends of a line to barlines. This can be useful when you want to use text in a line to center the text in a bar.
