Apply KidSib Font for Sibelius 4

Added 25 Aug 2005 (last updated 17 Mar 2008)

For use with Sibelius 4 and Sibelius 4.1

This plug-in applies the KidSib music font (not included with Sibelius, available for purchase separately here), which places note names inside the noteheads, a convention used occasionally in educational music. You must purchase the KidSib font to use this plug-in: it will not work without it.

Important! Copy the KidSib.lib file from within the .zip file you download into your user account's House Styles folder, which is at:

  • Windows: C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Sibelius Software\Sibelius 4\House Styles
  • Mac: /Users/username/Library/Application Support/Sibelius Software/Sibelius 4/House Styles

For Sibelius 5, use the Add Note Names to Noteheads plugin and the Opus Note Names font (free with Sibelius 5).

Plug-in written by Gunnar Hellquist & Bob Zawalich.
