Split Point One Staff

Version 01.05.00
Added 11 Sep 2006 (last updated 24 Jun 2012)

For use with Sibelius 4 and Sibelius 4.1

Split Point One Staff processes two staves. It moves notes on or above the split point to one staff, and notes below the split point to the other staff. Usually the high notes go to the top staff, but you can choose to have them go to the bottom staff. It will only work if one of the staves is empty, not when both staves have notes.

Only notes are moved, not dynamics or slurs, or transposition changes, etc., so you may need to clean up after it is run. The Combine Tied Notes and Rests plug-in is called to consolidate rests that may be left behind.

Plug-ins cannot process tuplets, so any notes inside tuplets will not be moved, and will have to be moved manually. If tuplets are detected, a warning will be given.

For Sibelius 5, use the shipping Change Split Point plugin.

Plug-in written by Bob Zawalich.
