Get Page Count

Version 01.07.00
Added 15 Dec 2006 (last updated 07 Mar 2014)

For use with Sibelius 4, Sibelius 4.1, Sibelius 5, Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x and Sibelius 18.x

Get Page Count stores the number of pages in a score (at the time the plug-in is run) into the Other Information field of the File > Score Info. This makes the number of pages available for use in text fields (such as \"Page x of y\") if the $MOREINFO wildcard is used. (The full text would be \"Page $PAGENUM of $MOREINFO\"). If the number of pages changes, the plug-in should be rerun, but any wildcards will be automatically updated.

Updated 4 April 2010. In Sib 6 or later, the plugin will store the page count both in the full score and in each part, so a footer containing the MOREINFO wildcard will be correct in the parts.

Updated 5 April 2010 to allow you to specify different Score Info locations for the page count data.

Updated 21 June 2012 to allow count to exclude Special Page Break title pages and following blank pages.

As of Sibelius 7.1.3, you can use the NumPages wildcard, and this plugin should not be needed.
