Box Line Fixed Width

Version 01.21.00
Added 16 Jul 2019 (last updated 25 Jul 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

Gives selected Box lines, and optionally other lines, a stable width when layout changes by setting the attachment points of both ends of the lines to the same beat position in the same bar (the position of the lower left corner of the original box).

It will also set the height and width (as offsets from the lower left hand corner in spaces). You can make further adjustments in the Inspector.

A PDF file with examples of how this can be used is included in the zip file and will be available on your machine when you use the plugin installer.

Updated 16 July 2019. Version 01.20.00. In the Trace routine, width and height are now available in both space and the units used in Document Setup. This makes the trace useful as an on screen ruler when fixed width lines are used.

Updated 25 July 2019. Version 01.21.00. You can now leave the Height field blank, which will leave height unchanged. You must still always specify a width, however.
