Custom Filter

Version 01.70.00
Added 05 Oct 2007 (last updated 13 Sep 2021)

For use with Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x, Sibelius 18.x, Sibelius 19.x, Sibelius 20.x, Sibelius 21.x, Sibelius 22.x, Sibelius 23.x and Sibelius 24.x

A filter that will filter lines as written, but which is designed to be modified. Change the condition in the IsDesiredObject method. The remaining code will filter objects that pass the IsObjectDesired test.

Updated October 10, 2007 to filter for Highlights rather than lines (Edit-Filter can filter lines).

Updated 17 April 2016 to check for empty selections as ask to select entire score.

Updated 03 October 2019. Version 01.40.00. This plugin now will run only in Sibelius version 6.2 or later. It is now completely in the public domain, so that any code within the file may be used in and other plugins without attribution (or support).

As before this plugin is intended to be a template for making your own filtering plugins. I recommend making a copy of the plugin and changing the value of the variable "_PluginMenuName" to be the new plugin name. If you install the plugin "Copy Plugin", it will make a copy of any other plugin and update _PluginMenuName if that variable is available.

In most cases all you should need to change is the code in the method "IsDesiredObject" to produce a new filter. This trick is knowing exactly what to ask for, but at least the structure of getting objects and selecting them will be taken care of by the existing code. Happy filtering!

Updated 10 October 2019. Version 01.50.00. Changed default code to filter for Text, System Text, and Lyrics.

Updated 22 August 2021. Version 01.60.00. Made tracing of results options based on the global variable g_fTraceResults. Made results a Trace call rather than a message box. Made minor code cleanups.

Updated 13 September 2021. Version 01.70.00. Fixed crashing bug when the plugin was run with no selection and user asked to select the entire score.

Filter Notes Tied To - Simple

Version 01.20.00
Added 03 Nov 2008 (last updated 29 Jun 2018)

For use with Sibelius 5, Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x, Sibelius 18.x, Sibelius 19.x, Sibelius 20.x, Sibelius 21.x, Sibelius 22.x, Sibelius 23.x and Sibelius 24.x

Filters notes in a selection that are the targets of a tied note, i.e., if one note is tied to a second note, the filter will select the second note.

This plugin will not catch all notes that are tied to. It assumes that the note with the ties immediately precedes its target, and so will miss arpeggiated notes tied to a block chord. It will also miss notes tied to from a note in a different voice. It general, for simple cases it works well, but please check all output carefully, and do not assume it is always correct.

This was intended for the use of selecting target notes in guitar tab, to make it easier to hide them, but there are likely many other uses as well. The Filter Other plugin has an option to filter tied notes, and these may find uses in tandem.

Updated 27 May 2010. A dialog was added, along with the ability to deselect as well as select notes.

Updated 5 April 2010. Changed initial test to allow plugin to run in Sibelius 5.25.

Updated 9 May 2016. Reworked the way tied to notes are calculated for better results and faster execution.

Updated 28 June 2018. Added option to filter tied-to notes only if the note was the first note in the first bar in a system. This helps find notes that are tied-to across system and page breaks.

Finds the previous (default) or following rehearsal mark (if any), starting from the start of the selection. To choose direction, run the plug-in with no selection.

Change the condition in the IsDesiredObject method. The remaining code will filter objects that pass the IsObjectDesired test.

Updated 10 October 2019. Version 01.50.00. This plugin now will run only in Sibelius version 6.2 or later. It is now completely in the public domain, so that any code within the file may be used in and other plugins without attribution (or support).

If you are already at the section start it will go the the next section, wrapping to the start of the score as needed. __ Run with no selection for options, including changing direction __ The start of a movement is defined as the bar following a bar marked as a Section End. There are some options to allow extra criteria for start of movement. __Updated 23 June 2017. Added options to have end of movement marked by Section End or Final Barline. __Updated 28 May 2023. Minor code cleanup.

Find Next One Of These

Version 01.55.00
Added 06 Jul 2010 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

For use with Sibelius 5, Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x, Sibelius 18.x, Sibelius 19.x, Sibelius 20.x, Sibelius 21.x, Sibelius 22.x, Sibelius 23.x and Sibelius 24.x

Using the properties of the first selected object, this plugin finds the next or previous object in the score that has the same properties. For example, you can select a piece of Fingering text and it will find the next piece of Fingering text.

If you run the plugin without a selection, it will bring up a dialog that allows you to change options, including the search direction and which properties to consider when finding. The options are saved across Sibelius sessions.

The zip file contains 2 plugins, each defaulting to a different search direction, and a PDF file explaining the options in more detail.

Filter What Was Chosen

Version 01.10.00
Added 15 Jul 2010 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

For use with Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x, Sibelius 18.x, Sibelius 19.x, Sibelius 20.x, Sibelius 21.x, Sibelius 22.x, Sibelius 23.x and Sibelius 24.x

This is the filter version of Find Next One Of These. It is a 2-step plugin. Select a single object, such as a note or piece of text. Then make a selection and run the plugin again. The plugin will filter all objects that match the original object properties.

Run with no selection to change options

Custom Note Filter

Version 01.60.00
Added 20 Apr 2011 (last updated 22 Aug 2021)

For use with Sibelius 5, Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x, Sibelius 18.x, Sibelius 19.x, Sibelius 20.x, Sibelius 21.x, Sibelius 22.x, Sibelius 23.x and Sibelius 24.x

A filter that will filter selected Note objects. By default it will filter for notes with ties, but it is designed to be modified. Change the condition in the IsDesiredObject method. The remaining code will filter objects that pass the IsObjectDesired test.

Updated 17 April 2016 to check for empty selections as ask to select entire score.

Updated 10 October 2019. Version 01.50.00. This plugin now will run only in Sibelius version 6.2 or later. It is now completely in the public domain, so that any code within the file may be used in and other plugins without attribution (or support).

As before this plugin is intended to be a template for making your own filtering plugins. I recommend making a copy of the plugin and changing the value of the variable "_PluginMenuName" to be the new plugin name. If you install the plugin "Copy Plugin", it will make a copy of any other plugin and update _PluginMenuName if that variable is available.

In most cases all you should need to change is the code in the method "IsDesiredObject" to produce a new filter. The trick is knowing exactly what to ask for, but at least the structure of getting objects and selecting them will be taken care of by the existing code. Happy filtering!

EDIT changed. See below. The default code will filter for quarter notes from the original selection.

Updated 22 August 2021. Version 01.60.00. Made tracing of results options based on the global variable g_fTraceResults. Made results a Trace call rather than a message box. Made minor code cleanups.

Changed default action to filter for Note-object-specific properties. By default, it now filters for Notes wholse notestyle is not NormalNoteStyle. Internal documentation was also updated.

Filter By Accidentals

Version 01.37.00
Added 02 Sep 2011 (last updated 02 Apr 2023)

For use with Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x, Sibelius 18.x, Sibelius 19.x, Sibelius 20.x, Sibelius 21.x, Sibelius 22.x, Sibelius 23.x and Sibelius 24.x

__Lets you filter either notes or Sib6-style chord symbols (not legacy chord symbols) based on the accidentals. __It could be handy as a pre-step for converting, for example, all sharps to flats, or for processing chord symbols with double accidentals, or filtering quartertones. __It has an option to select only the notes that have visible accidentals. __Updated 14 July 2013 to use built-in test for visible accidental when running in Sibelius 7.1.3 or later. __Updated 16 June 2016. Added ability to filter note roots as well as accidentals. This is mostly useful with quartertones, as it is the only way to filter all the E-quarter-flats in a selection. __Updated 7 May 2019. Version 01.36.00. Added ability to filter Triple Accidentals (which should never appear in a Sibelius score, but do). Follow with Browse Selected Objects to find any notes with triple accidentals. __Updated 2 April 2023. Version 01.37.00. Fixed crashing bug when the "show visible accidentals only" option was chosen. Added option to filter notes whose accidentals were not visible. Added a note in the dialog to explain what visible means in a plugin.

Filter Notes And Rests

Version 01.25.00
Added 21 Sep 2011 (last updated 06 Feb 2015)

For use with Sibelius 5, Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x, Sibelius 18.x, Sibelius 19.x, Sibelius 20.x, Sibelius 21.x, Sibelius 22.x, Sibelius 23.x and Sibelius 24.x

Filters any combination of notes and chords, rests, and bar rests.

This ability is also available in the Advanced Filter, but it may be more convenient to use the plugin, especially if you assign a shortcut.

Updated 6Feb2015 to replace .plg file with .zip version

Filter Hidden Objects

Version 01.28.00
Added 02 Oct 2011 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

For use with Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x, Sibelius 18.x, Sibelius 19.x, Sibelius 20.x, Sibelius 21.x, Sibelius 22.x, Sibelius 23.x and Sibelius 24.x

Filters objects that are hidden by the Show-Hide operation, or text that includes the tilde (~) or both.

It will optionally filter system text in the range of a non-system passage selection, allows Deselecting, and saves its options (except for Do not show dialog) across Sibelius sessions.

Plug-in written by Bob Zawalich.

Filter System Objects

Version 01.22.00
Added 01 Dec 2011 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

For use with Sibelius 5, Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x, Sibelius 18.x, Sibelius 19.x, Sibelius 20.x, Sibelius 21.x, Sibelius 22.x, Sibelius 23.x and Sibelius 24.x

Filters objects from the System Staff, including system text, lines and symbols, Rehearsal Marks, Time Signatures, Key Signature Changes, Bar Numbers, and Special Barlines.

The plugin allows you to specify which types of object will be filtered.

This can be useful when copying the structure of a score onto a different score.

Updated 16 January 2013. Fixed a typo in the Rehearsal Mark code. Also changed the dialog to say "Bar number changes" instead of "bar numbers" and added set/clear all buttons.

Filter First Notes

Version 01.22.00
Added 02 Feb 2012 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

For use with Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x, Sibelius 18.x, Sibelius 19.x, Sibelius 20.x, Sibelius 21.x, Sibelius 22.x, Sibelius 23.x and Sibelius 24.x

Starting with a passage selection, this plugin filters the first non-rest note in each visible staff in the selection. It avoids staves hidden by Hide Empty Staves, Focus On Staves, or a hidden instrument change.

Filter Colored Objects

Version 01.70.00
Added 11 Sep 2012 (last updated 01 Jun 2019)

For use with Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x, Sibelius 18.x, Sibelius 19.x, Sibelius 20.x, Sibelius 21.x, Sibelius 22.x, Sibelius 23.x and Sibelius 24.x

Filter Families

Version 01.08.00
Added 18 Sep 2012 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

For use with Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x, Sibelius 18.x, Sibelius 19.x, Sibelius 20.x, Sibelius 21.x, Sibelius 22.x, Sibelius 23.x and Sibelius 24.x

Filters staves that belong to instrument families that you can specify in a dialog.

Filtered instruments will be selected as part of a (possibly discontiguous) passage selection. The filter can select from an initial passage selection, or it can select from the entire score.

This could be followed with Hide Empty Staves to hide only empty percussion staves, for example.

Updated 21 September 2012 to make Select All do a system selection so system objects are included.

Move or Copy to Another Voice

Version 2.3
Added 18 Oct 2012 (last updated 12 May 2018)

For use with Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x, Sibelius 18.x, Sibelius 19.x, Sibelius 20.x, Sibelius 21.x, Sibelius 22.x, Sibelius 23.x and Sibelius 24.x

This plugin is an updated and expanded version of the 'Move top or bottom notes to another voice' plugin previously submitted and is a simple alternative filter to the Sibelius one.

It moves or copies notes, lyrics, dynamics (including hairpins) and other text from one voice to another. Unlike Sibelius' filters, it works with tuplets (including nested ones) hence you can copy or move passages with tuplets partially or wholly selected. It also allows you to move whole dotted quavers (for example) in 6/8 time without converting them into semi+quaver combinations on the 2nd and 4th dotted quaver beats.

Furthermore it allows you to copy/delete the top or bottom notes of tuplets by moving them into another voice and then filtering and pasting/deleting that voice.

It works best when the destination voice is either empty or has the same rhythm as the source voice and is designed to complement the existing Sibelius filters. Where the rhythms of the source voice and destination voice are different, only the rhythm of the source voice is preserved.

1.1 Update: Improvements have been added in the way it handles destination voices which are not empty, copies note and rest properties to the destination voice and deals with the beam property in rests.

1.2 Update: This update contains various bug fixes which apply where the destination voice already has material.

Updated 12 May 2018. 2.3 Update.

Coloured notes are supported in Sibelius 8.3 and higher.

Slide Styles are supported from Sibelius 8.6 and higher.

Note styles in grace notes are now supported although multiple grace notes before notes are still not.

Delete Voices 1-4

Version 1.2
Added 11 Feb 2013 (last updated 09 Sep 2014)

For use with Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x, Sibelius 18.x, Sibelius 19.x, Sibelius 20.x, Sibelius 21.x, Sibelius 22.x, Sibelius 23.x and Sibelius 24.x

Delete Voices 1-4

Version 1.2

Added 11 Feb 2013 (last updated 13 Aug 2014)

For use with Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1 and Sibelius 7.5

Filtering out a voice and deleting it in Sibelius can take up to six steps if tuplets are involved. These plugins allows you to delete a voice with one command.

They are designed to be run from keyboard shortcuts, hence four plugins rather than one with a dialog and they will also work on selected passages that intersect tuplets.

Tip: Define Ctrl+Shift+Alt+F1-4 for these plugins respectively. This corresponds to the default Alt+1-4 (create or move to voice) and Ctrl+Shift+Alt+1-4 (filter voice) shortcuts.

  • Update: General bug fixes and improvements
  • Update to version 1.2 for Delete Voices 2, 3 and 4: Voice 1 is now never left empty in a bar. If no voice 1 notes or rests are present a bar rest is added.

Unfilter Selection and Unfilter Selection Whole Bars

Version 1.2
Added 14 May 2013 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

For use with Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x, Sibelius 18.x, Sibelius 19.x, Sibelius 20.x, Sibelius 21.x, Sibelius 22.x, Sibelius 23.x and Sibelius 24.x

These convert one or more selected objects into a selected passage. The Whole Bars version selects complete bars. They are quite useful when working with filters and I suggest assigning keyboard shortcuts to them if you use them regularly.

1.1 Update: Added ability to reverse selection e.g. notes to passage selection and the other way too. This update also includes general stability improvements.

1.2 Update: When run with a passage selected the plugin now filters out tuplets as well as notes. This is useful for cutting and pasting.

Filter Text

Version 01.91.00
Added 20 Mar 2014 (last updated 03 May 2023)

For use with Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x, Sibelius 18.x, Sibelius 19.x, Sibelius 20.x, Sibelius 21.x, Sibelius 22.x, Sibelius 23.x and Sibelius 24.x

__This plugin presents a list of text, system text, and lyrics that are present in the current selection, and allows you to filter specific styles in the selection. In Sibelius 7.1.3 and later, the list box is multi-selectable, and you can use ctrl/cmnd click to choose multiple styles for filtering. In Sibelius 6, you can only choose one style for filtering. __Checkboxes allow you to restrict the list to staff text, system text, or lyrics. __You can either Select or Deselect the chosen styles. Select will cause text with the chosen style(s) to be selected. Deselect will cause text in any styles in the list that are not chosen to be selected. __The Advanced Filter in Sibelius will also filter text, but if you have a lot of filtering to do, this plugin requires fewer steps, and makes searching for styles easier by restricting the list of styles to those that are present in the original selection. __Updated 6 May 2014 to fix bugs in dialog selection __Major update 6 December 2021. Version 01.90.00. Added features to allow the content of text objects to be filtered as well as the text styles. New features available in Sib 7.1.3 or later only. See Help in the plugin for details of the new features. __Updated 3 May 2023. Version 01.91.00. __Added checkboxes for Trace Results: shows number of changes made, off by default , and Reposition start of selection: Moves the Active View to the start of the selection after filtering, on by default. __These were previously non optional. The big change is to make repositioning at the end optional. Turning it off risks not having any evidence that anything was found, as does turning off Trace results.

Filter Slurred Notes - Simple

Version 01.40.10
Added 07 Apr 2014 (last updated 13 Mar 2024)

For use with Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x, Sibelius 18.x, Sibelius 19.x, Sibelius 20.x, Sibelius 21.x, Sibelius 22.x, Sibelius 23.x and Sibelius 24.x

This plugin selects most notes that are covered by slurs. It selects notes that are in the same staff and voice as a slur, and start at or later than the slur, and end at or before the end of the slur. It will select notes even if the slur itself is not selected, or if a covering slur starts before the first selected note.

All notes in a chord are selected if any note in the chord is under a slur.

This can be useful for doing things like changing Live Playback settings for slurred notes.

If you create slurs and extend them with the space key, it should catch notes at both ends. If you drag the ends of the slur, it may miss notes at the edges. It will not find notes if the slur crosses staves.

Updated 13 March 2024. Version 01.40.10. Added dialog to allow it to filter either slurred notes or unslurred notes.

Plug-in written by Bob Zawalich.

Filter Stem Direction

Version 01.06.00
Added 24 Sep 2014 (last updated 29 Jul 2018)

For use with Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x, Sibelius 18.x, Sibelius 19.x, Sibelius 20.x, Sibelius 21.x, Sibelius 22.x, Sibelius 23.x and Sibelius 24.x

Selects or deselects notes according to whether the note stem direction is up or down. It can also filter by voice.

Updated 29 July 2018. Version 01.06.00. Added ability to optionally include in the selection slurs that start at the same location in the same voice as a selected note. You can also select just the notes or just the slurs.

Hide MIDI Messages

Version 01.30.00
Added 20 Apr 2016 (last updated )

For use with Sibelius 5, Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x, Sibelius 18.x, Sibelius 19.x, Sibelius 20.x, Sibelius 21.x, Sibelius 22.x, Sibelius 23.x and Sibelius 24.x

Adds the Hidden attribute to selected text that starts with a ~ and is structured as a MIDI message. This allows Sibelius to use Hide Empty Staves on staves containing MIDI messages.

The code will not hide any other text, so it is generally safe to select an entire score and run the plugin.

Plug-in written by Bob Zawalich.

Filter Notes By String

Version 01.30.00
Added 29 Sep 2017 (last updated 31 May 2018)

For use with Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x, Sibelius 18.x, Sibelius 19.x, Sibelius 20.x, Sibelius 21.x, Sibelius 22.x, Sibelius 23.x and Sibelius 24.x

Filter notes on one or more strings. Notes must have been assigned string numbers, either by being on or pasted from a Tablature staff to be filterable.

In the list, string number 1 is the string with the highest pitch.

The number of strings in the staff, if a Tab staff, or in the Tab instrument to use for string tunings, if a Notation staff, must be correctly specified.

This plugin requires Sib 7.1.3 or later due to the multselect list box.

Plug-in written by Bob Zawalich.

Filter Text By Length

Version 01.07.00
Added 04 Apr 2018 (last updated 11 Apr 2018)

For use with Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x, Sibelius 18.x, Sibelius 19.x, Sibelius 20.x, Sibelius 21.x, Sibelius 22.x, Sibelius 23.x and Sibelius 24.x

Selects or deselects text objects based on the number of characters in the unformatted text.

Leading and trailing spaces may be ignored. Line breaks count as a single character.

This plugin is dedicated to Jo´┐Żo Pais.

Updated 10 April 2018. Added ability to use longest substring of a text object containing line feeds.

Filter Orphan Objects

Version 01.08.00
Added 03 Sep 2018 (last updated )

For use with Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x, Sibelius 18.x, Sibelius 19.x, Sibelius 20.x, Sibelius 21.x, Sibelius 22.x, Sibelius 23.x and Sibelius 24.x

Orphaned objects are those which are not at the same rhythmic position of any ''parent note'' in the bar containing the object. Orphaned lyrics can cause note spacing problems, and orphaned chord symbols can generate notes that play on the wrong beat.

This plugin selects orphaned objects. It can trace the location of the objects it selects to the plugin trace window. You can run the plugin Browse Selected Objects, if installed, on the selected objects to navigate among them after the filtering is complete.

The plugin will only process these objects: Lyrics, Chord Symbols (Legacy and Chord Symbol objects), Staff Text, Lines, and Symbols. You can filter for all of these at once.

By default, objects matched with rests are considered orphans, but for some objects, like chord symbols, you may uncheck that option, so that objects that match the position of rests will not be considered orphaned.

By default, notes must be in the same voice as the objects being matched, unless the object is defined as being in all voices.

Added 14 Oct 2019 (last updated )

Filters selected objects based on their visibility in the full score and in any dynamic parts included in the initial selection.

The options match Home-Edit-Hide/Show settings plus Hide All and where objects are hidden in some but not all parts, and where an object is only hidden in the current score or part.

The default code will filter for NoteRests that have a single note only, ignoring rests and chords.

Updated 22 August 2021. Version 01.60.00. Made tracing of results options based on the global variable g_fTraceResults. Made results a Trace call rather than a message box. Made minor code cleanups.

Filter All

Version 01.60.00
Added 15 May 2020 (last updated 08 Mar 2021)

For use with Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x, Sibelius 18.x, Sibelius 19.x, Sibelius 20.x, Sibelius 21.x, Sibelius 22.x, Sibelius 23.x and Sibelius 24.x

Changes a passage selection into individually selected objects. If there is no passage selected all objects in the score will be selected. [This behavior has been changed. See below].

Original version 01.50.00.

Updated 8 March 2021. Version 01.60.00.

Changed to mimic what a Filter All Voices command would do. Does nothing if there is not a passage selection, and does not reposition selection as it did before. If gathers all selected objects in the passage selection, then selects each object separately.

Filter Notes By Duration

Version 01.16.51

__Added 22 July 2021. Version 01.08.00. __Filters Note, Chords, and / or Rests by duration, similar to what is done in the Advanced Filter. Matching can be equal, less than, greater than, less than or equal to, or greater than or equal to the duration specified in the dialog. __ Durations between whole notes to 32nd notes, including dotted variants can be specified. __This plugin is designed to be called by other plugins as well as being used directly. You can hide the dialog, and it can be run using Run Plugin Hide Dialog. __To match a range, you need to run it twice, once matching greater or equal to the low value, then filter the results to be less than or equal to the high value.

__Initial Version 01.09.00. Filter notes, rests, and-or tuplets at a specific beat position from the start of their bars. __The size of a beat is determined by the current time signature in each selected bar. Beat 1 is always the start of the bar. __This plugin is dedicated to Ilkay Bora Oder. __Compare positions with the operators equal to, less than, greater than, less than or equal to, and greater than or equal to. __This plugin treats any time signature with a numerator divisible by 3, except 3 itself, as compound time. For compound time, the beat size is 3 times the size represented by the denominator. For any other time signature, the beat size is the size represented by the denominator. __Use whole numbers or fractions that are a multiple of 2 for a beat to match: 1.5, 1.25, 1.125... __The operator =multiple will match all objects whose beats are an exact multiple of the beat size. It does not automatically match the first note/tuplet in the bar. __Updated 30 July 2021. Version 01.09.01. Reset default settings and restricted Execute Command-related features to only work in Sib Ultimate 2021.2 or later. __Updated 06 August 2021. Version 01.10.00.

Version 01.10.30
Added 02 Feb 2024 (last updated 07 Feb 2024)

For use with Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x, Sibelius 18.x, Sibelius 19.x, Sibelius 20.x, Sibelius 21.x, Sibelius 22.x, Sibelius 23.x and Sibelius 24.x

__Initial version 2 February 2024. Version 01.10.20 __ This is a 2-stage plugin. The first stage is to select a single note in a score, to provide properties to which other notes will be compared. __The second stage, which can be repeated, is to select more than 1 note, and then run the plugin. __The plugin will then find or filter any selected notes that are determined to match the originally selected note. __If the plugin is run with no selected notes, it will put up a dialog that will let you change which properties will be compared when matching notes. __Filter Notes Matching Chosen Note is dedicated to Bernie Cossentino. This was all his idea. __Updated 6 February 2024. Version 01.10.30. Added option to match pitches in all octaves. The default is unchecked, meaning the pitch matches the selected pitch only in its current octave.
