Provides a multi-selectable list of parts in the current score. Select the parts you want open in tabs, and deselect the ones you do not want open

This can be very useful for doing things like importing house styles into all open parts, and similar multi-part operations.

Updated 23 December 2011. Made change to ensure window opened in tabs.

Updated 5 April 2012. A new version uses a non-checkbox multi-select list - needs Sib 7.1.2. The earlier version (Open Selected Parts Checkbox) is also available as is a document describing its uses.

Updated 11 December 2017 to seep up for large scores.

Updated 27 February 2018. Fixed crash when there were no parts.

Updated 22 March 2018. Added button to check for duplicate part names. Added suffix in dialog to duplicate part names so such parts can be opened.
