Replace From Clipboard

Version 01.06.00
Added 05 Sep 2022 (last updated 06 Sep 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 and Sibelius 22.x

In Sibelius, if you have a single object selected with a non-passage selection, and then paste a copied object, the original object will still be in the score, along with the pasted object. Sometimes this is not what you want. This plugin *replaces EACH * selected object with the contents of the clipboard. You will be warned if there is nothing in the clipboard. It will only work if the copied data to be pasted is a single Sibelius Bar Object, such as Text or a Line. The selection of objects to replace cannot be a passage selection. Be very aware that the paste will replace ALL selected objects, so be sure you want all such objects replaced. The horizontal and vertical position of the pasted objects is taken from the original objects. The pasted objects will be selected when the plugin completes. If the plugin is run with no selection, an informational dialog will come up. Initial version 01.06.00 4 September 2022.
