Go To Internal Bar Number

Added 09 Jan 2009

For use with Sibelius 5

This plug-in acts exactly the same as the Sibelius 'Go To Bar' built in function, except that it goes to a bar based on its internal bar number rather than its external bar number. It is useful for navigating through a score that has one or more bar number changes.

An example of such an instance would be when a user has a run another plug-in that outputs internal bar numbers. Another instance would be if the user knew the number of a bar before they inserted a bar number change.

Internal bar numbers never change, except when measures are added or deleted. If the user enters an incorrect internal bar number, the plu-in will display the range of internal bar numbers so the user knows why their entered number was not valid. This plug-in is particulaly well-suited to have a shortcut assigned to it.

Move Passage Selection Up or Down A Staff

Added 29 Jul 2009 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

For use with Sibelius 4, Sibelius 4.1, Sibelius 5, Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5 and Sibelius 8.x

In Avid's industry-standard software Pro Tools, there is often a need to navigate the music using a selection. For example, if you make a selection in one instrument and wish to jump to another instrument whilst retaining the original selection's boundaries you can easily do so using Pro Tools's built-in shortcuts. There certainly exists a need for this type of navigation in Sibelius; however, in Sibelius if you wish to jump a passage selection up or down to another staff, there is no quick way to do so.

To remedy this, simply assign shortcuts to these two selection navigation plug-ins, which are useful for copying and pasting from one staff to another, quickly pasting throughout staves, toggling through them, or for allowing the engraver to adjust staff spacing without ever having to use the mouse or a combination of shortcuts. Currently it toggles through even staves that are hidden, so if your selection goes off the screen it is because you are selecting a staff that is currently hidden. Compatible with Sibelius 4, 5, and 6.

Move Passage Selection to Next or Previous Bar

Added 27 Sep 2009 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

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

These two Selection Navigation plug-ins make a passage selection around the next or previous bar (assuming you have a passage currently selected). They are useful when assigned shortcuts, and are particularly suited to be used with the other Selection Navigation plugins. They work for Sibelius 5 and 6.

Go To Text

Version 01.56.00
Added 10 Nov 2011 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

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

This plugin lets you go to the next or previous piece of staff text, in any text style, relative to the current selection.

You can run it with no selection to change search direction.

You can type arbitrary text to use as bookmarks (hidden text starting with ~ is recommended, such as ~1, ~2, ~3 for easy to enter bookmarks), and use this plugin to find those bookmarks.

Updated 11 Nov 11 to select the bar containing the bookmark and move it to the upper left corner to increase visibility.

Updated 24 November 2011 selects the text, not the bar, so next finds work.
