Pedal Lines

Version 01.06.00
Added 06 Oct 2007 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

For use with Sibelius 5, Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1 and Sibelius 7.5

Reads MIDI pedal control messages and converts them to pedal lines. You must make a passage selection. It will convert pairs of ~C64 (sustain pedal), ~C66 (sostenuto pedal) or ~C67 (soft pedal) messages, and will optionally delete the messages. You can choose pedal line styles for different controllers.

Updated 2 October 2011 to fix error message that said "false" instead of "0".

Updated 18 October 2011 to ignore (with warnings) unmatched OFF messages and to create short lines for any unmatched ON messages. This lets the plugin do more with scores where the MIDI message are not properly matched, but if you see messages, check the output VERY carefully, because some pedal lines will surely be the wrong position or the wrong length. I recommend not having the plugin delete MIDI messages if you see warnings, so you can do better manual adjustments.

Remove Trill Wiggly Lines

Added 14 Apr 2009 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

For use with Sibelius 5, Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1 and Sibelius 7.5

This plug-in removes the wiggly lines from selected trills in a score. If there is no initial selection, the user is given a choice of changing every trill or cancelling the operation.

Behind the scenes, the plug-in shortens the length of a trill\'s wiggly line to zero. As such, trills are maintained as \"line\" type elements and keep their ability to sound a trill during score playback.

Replace Trill Symbols with Trill Lines

Added 18 Apr 2009 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

For use with Sibelius 5, Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1 and Sibelius 7.5

This plug-in replaces trill symbols that don’t play back with trill lines that do playback. It handles the standard trill symbol “tr” as well as the bracketed trill symbol “(tr)”, which are replaced with a trill line without the wiggly line. If there is no initial selection, the user is given a choice of replacing every trill symbol or canceling the operation.

This plug-in is useful if you receive a score from another copyist that used trill symbols or for scores imported into Sibelius from some other programs.

Version 01.00.00
Added 08 Jul 2009 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

For use with Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1 and Sibelius 7.5

Looks for "old-style" arpeggio lines and replaces them with a new note-attached arpeggio attached to the nearest following note or chord.

Line Between Notes

Version 01.39.00
Added 14 Jun 2010 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

For use with Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1 and Sibelius 7.5

Adds a line (such as a gliss line)between 2 selected notes (skipping rests).

You can adjust horizontal and vertical offsets, and these values are remembered across Sibelius sessions. You should only have to set these up once.

If selected notes are on multiple staves, the line will be added only to the staff when the line starts; you will need to drag the other end to its destination. Use alt/opt right arrow to select the line end point.

Magnetic layout is turned off by default. For transposing instruments, a line added to the full score will be repositioned in the parts.

These is also an option to realign lines between 2 notes for situations where the notes might have changed without the lines following

Updated 17 June 2010. Handles grace notes (though the lines do not line up well when the interval is less than a 5th). The alignment option has been removed (it never really worked), and a new option to connect a selection with lines has been added.

Updated 13 October 2010. Bug fix to handle clef changes in bar 1 and another for connecting selections with an odd number of notes.

Updated 27 December 2010. Minor tweak to prevent unneeded transposing score view change

Updated 3 June 2011. Removed a trace message and changed the text on the dialog to clarify what the options mean.

Updated 9 October 2011. Extra window on main score could appear in Sib 7 if there were transposing parts - fixed.

Updated 3 November 2011.

* takes the line style names from the score, so it will work in any supported language.(It will now dirty the score even if you add no lines. If you run the plugin and make no changes, Sibelius will ask you to save changes, and you can ignore that).

* adds a new option that will add lines across multiple selected notes, restarting the line if rests are encountered.

* for the “connect the notes options, it now connects within voices and also processes notes staff by staff, so it can correctly handle a multi-staff selection.

* it will now process slurs, though they do not work with grace notes.

* if there are chords, the line will be connected to the highest selected note in the chord

* the style of any lines in the score will be added to the list of available styles. To get additional styles to use, add a line of that type somewhere in the score.

Updated 24 December 2011 to make the Do not show dialog option turn off at the start of every Sibelius session, rather than staying off until you run the plugin with no selection. No selection will still bring up the dialog even if shut off for the session.

Updated 6 October 2012. Added option to disable playback for added lines.

Shift Line Height

Version 01.03.00
Added 15 Jul 2010 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

For use with Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1 and Sibelius 7.5

Shifts both ends of all selected lines vertically by a specified number of spaces. Can be useful if you have mixed text and hairpins after aligning by row.

Replace Line Style

Version 01.05.00
Added 24 Jul 2010 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

For use with Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1 and Sibelius 7.5

Replaces selected lines of a specified style with lines of another style, effectively providing a mechanism to change the style of lines.

System lines can only be replaced by system lines, and staff lines by staff lines.

The plugin is in English, but it will correctly replace lines whose style names are in different languages.

Updated 31 July 2010 to pick up system lines that are the only thing in the selection.

Updated 2 August 2010 to pick up all user lines in the score, not just those in the selection.

Updated 8 October 2010 to restore custom drawing order and magnetic layout properties. Version 1.05.

Create Add Line Plugin

Version 01.57.00
Added 14 Dec 2010 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

For use with Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1 and Sibelius 7.5

Lets you create and install a new plug-in that, when run, will insert a line into the score. The properties of the line are taken from a line that is selected when Create Add Line Plugin is run. If you assign a shortcut to the new plug-in, you will have, in effect, a way to assign a shortcut to an individual line with specific properties.

The generated plugin will be put by default in the Add Line subfolder of your user Plug-ins folder (the plugin may create this subfolder). The name will include the line style.

In order to assign shortcuts to the newly-created plug-ins, you must first close and restart Sibelius, so the new plug-ins will be loaded.

Updated 9 August 2011 for Sib 7 user file location compatibility

Updated 22 Oct 2011 to fix Sib 7 changes.

Updated 12 Oct 2012 to reduce restrictions on user-defined lines and handle system lines.

Retract Line Ends

Version 01.05.00
Added 19 Apr 2013 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

For use with Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1 and Sibelius 7.5

Pulls back the right end of lines that end at the start of the next bar. The line will then terminate at the end of the previous bar. The plugin can process all selected lines, or just lines of specified types.

If the selection is a passage selection, any system lines in the selection range will be processed; otherwise only selected lines will be processed.

Bracket Notes

Version 01.18.00
Added 16 May 2013 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

For use with Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1 and Sibelius 7.5

Bracket Notes will add a vertical bracket line to the left of selected notes. If more than 2 notes in a chord are selected, the highest and lowest notes will be connected.

It cannot make horizontal space for added lines, so you will need to do that manually. The vertical position of the line will usually be correct, but you will likely need horizontal adjustments.

This can be very useful for adding double-stop indicators in string parts.

The code that figures out the stem direction for notes in Sibelius 6 was graciously provided by Neil Sands, and I thank him for allowing me to include it in this plugin.
