Selection Navigation Bundle

For use with Sibelius 6 and Sibelius 7

This Plugin Bundle Contains 7 separate plugins in 4 different groups. They are intended to be each assigned a unique shortcut. If you hate your mouse, you'll love these plugins.

Move Passage Selection Up or Down A Staff

In Avid's industry-standard software Pro Tools, there is often a need to navigate the music using a selection. For example, if you make a selection in one instrument and wish to jump to another instrument whilst retaining the original selection's boundaries you can easily do so using Pro Tools's built-in shortcuts. There certainly exists a need for this type of navigation in Sibelius; however, in Sibelius if you wish to jump a passage selection up or down to another staff, there is no quick way to do so.

To remedy this, simply assign shortcuts to these two selection navigation plug-ins, which are useful for copying and pasting from one staff to another, quickly pasting throughout staves, toggling through them, or for allowing the engraver to adjust staff spacing without ever having to use the mouse or a combination of shortcuts. Currently it toggles through even staves that are hidden, so if your selection goes off the screen it is because you are selecting a staff that is currently hidden.

Move Passage Selection to Next or Previous Bar

These two Selection Navigation plug-ins make a passage selection around the next or previous bar (assuming you have a passage currently selected). They are useful when assigned shortcuts, and are particularly suited to be used with the other Selection Navigation plugins.

Select Page & Select Staves on Page

Select Page (All) allows you to make a passage selection around the current page, selecting all bars and staves on that page. Select a bar, and then run this plug-in and the full page will be selected. If you already have a selection that spans more than one page, all selected pages will be fully selected. Just as double clicking on a bar will select the entire system, and triple clicking on a bar will select the staff throughout the score, it is very helpful to assign a shortcut to this plug-in to quickly select a whole page.

Select Page (Staff) allows you to make a passage selection around the current page, selecting all bars in the current staff/staves. Select a bar, and then run this plug-in and the full page will be selected (but only in the selected staff/staves). If you already have a selection that spans more than one page, all selected pages will be fully selected. Just as double-clicking on a bar will select the entire system, and triple-clicking on a bar will select the staff throughout the score, it is very helpful to assign a shortcut to this plug-in to quickly select a whole page.

Select All Staves

This plugin is intended for larger scores. If you have a passage selection but need to include all staves in your selection, simply run this plugin and it will extend your selection vertically to include all staves. No more mouse equals much more time.
