Add Interval

Version 01.18.03
Added 14 Feb 2013 (last updated 07 May 2021)

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

Add an interval above or below selected notes. Describe intervals using a fixed number of semitones, or add named intervals to the selection. This is similar to the Sibelius Interval Above/Below, except that Sibelius allows only diatonic intervals to be added.

The plugin remembers its settings and can be invoked without its dialog. Other plugins call call into it to produce a specific interval. Plugins that do this can be assigned a separate shortcut. Two sample plugins that generate up and down diatonic tenths can be found at Add Interval Diatonic 10th in the category Notes and Rests. These plugins require Add Interval to be installed, and can be used as templates for plugins for other intervals.
