Create Tuplet Different Units

Version 01.59.00
Added 14 May 2020 (last updated 19 May 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

Original version 01.58.00.

Create a tuplet at the location of a note, chord, rest, or bar rest, where the units of the left and right sides of the tuplet can be different, such as 2-quarter notes in the time of 3-eighth notes.

If the left and right sides have different units, the tuplets generated will have usually have nested tuplets, with the bracket and number turned off by default. Use the Inspector to make the nested tuplet numbers and brackets visible.

You can use this plugin to create tuplets where both sides have the same unit. In that case no nested tuplets are created.

Updated 19 May 2020. Version 01.59.00. Fix to draw unit sized rests if creating tuplet with same units. Added command to Trace the tuplet specification and copy full tuplet text to the clipboard.
