Current Instrument Name Each Page

Version 01.11.00
Added 04 Jun 2022 (last updated 05 Oct 2022)

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, Sibelius 22.x, Sibelius 23.x and Sibelius 24.x

Current Instrument Name Each Page adds a text object containing the name of the instrument used in the first visible bar on each page of the score or part. It will adjust for Instrument Changes. The full score and each part have an independent set of instrument name text objects. Text created in the full score will be hidden in parts. Text created in a part will be visible only in that part, and hidden in the full score and any other parts that share a staff with the part. The plugin pays attention to the selection only in the Current score or part option, otherwise the entire score or part is processed. Unless you have a particular reason to format only a selection, a full selection of the score or part is recommended. If the selection is used, a passage (box) selection is required. Updated 25 July 2022 Version 01.10.00. Changed dialog to allow user to multiselect parts to be processed, and added ability to adjust X and Y offsets, similar to what Position Rehearsal Mark does. Allows system text items that can be page aligned, but this generates a huge number of hidden texts in parts so it is only recommended when using extracted parts. Updated 05 October 2022. Version 01.11.00. As of Ultimate 2022.9, the "Use Edited Names" option can pick up user-edited names that follow Instrument Changes. Previously it could find edited names from the Staff prior to the first IC, but could only get default names from the IC.
