Tag Bar Number Changes

Version 01.05.00
Added 28 Dec 2005 (last updated 24 Jun 2012)

For use with Sibelius 4 and Sibelius 4.1

This plug-in adds a piece of Technique text at the same location as any Bar Number Changes in the score.

The purpose of the tag is to provide a label that can be \'gone to\' using the Find command.

The tag consists of the displayed bar number and an optional prefix. So if you had changes to bars 20, 100, and 1, in bars 2, 3, and 4, and the prefix was ~BNC, bar 2 would get the text ~BNC20, bar 3 ~BNC100, and bar 4 ~BNC1. Use Find on ~BNC to go to those bars.

Run the plug-in again to update changed bar number changes, but if extensive changes have been made, it might be best to remove existing tags before re-running.

You can use the plug-in to remove (untag) the Bar Number Changes later. It cannot actually delete the text tags, but it can either set them blank, or to a single text of your choosing. The latter is suggested, because you can set them to the same text (such as ~DeleteMe), and filter that text and delete them all at once.

In Sibelius 5, use the downloadable Go To plugin instead (use the bar number change option.
