Lyrics Verse Numbers and Alignment

Version 01.32.00
Added 02 Apr 2020 (last updated 09 Apr 2020)

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 and Sibelius 22.x

This plugin can add verse numbers and left align the first lyric syllable in a system. It can completely replace the plugin Left Align First Lyric in System, and it offers a different way of adding measure numbers than Add Verse Numbers. It can also convert verse numbers created in Add Verse Numbers to its own format.

Verse numbers created by this plugin are separate lyric syllables positioned to the left of the first lyric syllable for each verse in each staff in a system. Use the Help button for more details.

If you use the Left Align option after verse numbers are added, both the verse number and the following lyric syllable will be aligned.

The original version number is 01.30.00.

Updated 8 April 2020. Version 01.32.00.

Hyphen handling has been changed so that the plugin adds 2 non breaking spaces and a hyphen to the end of adjusted middle-of-word syllables. The gives less flexibility but is the only way I have yet found to prevent hyphens from vanishing in normal use. See Help for more details.
