Edit Text File

Version 01.80.00
Added 28 Sep 2012 (last updated 22 Aug 2019)

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

For Sibelius 7.1.3 and later only.

Launches an application that will edit a text file. You specify both the application and the text file, and these files will be remembered over Sibelius sessions.

This could be be useful for plugins that create log files and text files, or even html files, and would like to display them from within Sibelius.

For plugin developers, please note that the mechanism to launching apps is rather different in Windows and OSX.

This plugin is dedicated to Mary Elizabeth, for her invaluable testing assistance.
