Find Parallel Motion Plug-in

How to get there

Choose Plug-ins > Scoring and Arranging > Find Parallel Motion. If there is no selection when you invoke the Find Parallel Motion command, it will process the entire document.

What it does

The Find Parallel Motion plug-in is used to find the parallel fifths and octaves in a region of selected music. The plug-in compares notes found in different voices, layers and staves.

After invoking the Find Parallel plug-in, a dialog will be displayed. After clicking Find Next, the dialog will also indicate the staff, measure, and beat in which parallel occurred. The plug-in will also scroll the document so that at least one of these notes will be visible (it scrolls to the note that occurs first). The Find Parallel plug-in always uses MIDI note number, regardless of the Display Pitch setting in the View section of the Preferences. See Preferences-View.
