Select Staves

Version 01.25.00
Added 25 Mar 2015 (last updated 22 Feb 2018)

For use with Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x, Sibelius 18.x, Sibelius 19.x and Sibelius 20.x

Lists the names of all the staves in the score.

Click on a staff name in the list box to check or uncheck it. Checked staff names will be selected when the plugin ends.There is no keyboard access to the list, so you will have to use a mouse.

This can make selecting staves in a large score easier, since less scrolling will be required, and can be useful if you are going to use Focus On Staves.

Updated 22 February 2018. Change Select Staves to use a conventional multi-selectable list box, which allows forkeyboard selection, in Sibelius 7.1.3 and later. For Sibelius 6, the original plugin, which uses a special checkbox-style listbox that can only be used with a mouse, is also available and is now called Select Staves for Sibelius 6.

Retract Selection

Version 01.05.00
Added 02 Sep 2019 (last updated 02 Sep 2019)

For use with Sibelius 5, Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x, Sibelius 18.x, Sibelius 19.x and Sibelius 20.x

A passage (blue box) selection or system passage (purple box)selection, is considered full selected if the last bar was selected by clicking in the bar rather than on a note. When adding lines to such a selection, the lines will often extend into the following bar. This plugin move the end of such a selection to end end of the previous bar so lines will end where you expect them to.
