Guitar Chord Diagrams

Postby emiliocantini » Mon Dec 18, 2017 1:43 pm

Is there any way to Sibelius recognize tab chords (and Symbols) as they are already written, and convert them into chord diagrams automatically?
I have the score too...
Many thanks

Yes - well there is a plugin called Add Chord symbols which does some analysis of your selected chords (including Tab) and adds the chord symbols to the staves. It's then a simple matter to show chord diagrams, by a right click on the staves in question.

Not sure how good this plugin is in a real-life situation, but it certainly worked in reverse for some chords I had 'realised' from the symbols.
