Position Dynamics

Version 01.72.00
Added 17 Apr 2012 (last updated 30 Jan 2020)

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

This plugin repositions Expression/dynamics text according to the text of the dynamics expression, the width of the associated noteheads, and the stem direction (in Sib 7 only), so that a dynamic will appear in an aesthetically pleasing relation to an associated note.

It comes with 4 "position sets" designed by Matthew Maslanka, with input from Jeremy Hughes, for use with Opus, Helsinki, Inkpen2 and Reprise fonts.

New positions sets can be created and existing ones edited. Position sets are saved as text files and can be shared among users.

A PDF file describing how to use the plugin is included in the zip file. I recommend looking through it before you use the plugin.

Updated 28 May 2018. Mostly grand staff fixes.

Updated 30 January 2020. Version 01.72.00. Fix to crash on grand staff when it was the final staff in the score.
