Edit Formatted Text

Version 01.06.00
Added 22 Oct 2021 (last updated 22 Oct 2021)

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

Version 01.06.00. This plugin displays the formatted text string for the first selected Text or System Text object. It does not process Lyrics. If the text is very long it will be split into multiple edit boxes, which will be joined together before being used to update the selected text object.

You can make changes to the text, and update the Text object with the updated text, but this plugin will not validate the changes you make. Use it carefully and at your own risk. You might use it on a copy of the text you want to change.

Valid formatting wildcards can be found in the ManuScript Language Reference in the section Expressions_string. Editing formatted text is similar to editing HTML code. This plugin lets you change formatted text when you cannot do it directly by pasting a formatted string into a Text object.

A PDF file explaining how to use the plugin is included in the zip file.
