This plug-in allows you to replace a selected multirest with a line, e.g. a wavy line (as used in percussion parts to indicate that the player should simply play for that number of bars).

To use the plug-in, first set the multirest display to Blank in House Style > Engraving Rules > Bar Rests, then select the multirest in which you want to use a line, and run the plug-in.

Updated 20 Mar 2009 to run in Sibelius 5
