Version 01.06.00
Added 24 Nov 2015 (last updated 24 Nov 2015)

For use with Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x, Sibelius 18.x, Sibelius 19.x, Sibelius 20.x, Sibelius 21.x, Sibelius 22.x, Sibelius 23.x and Sibelius 24.x

Replaces repeat bar rests with the contents of the appropriate bars. It will always copy notes, rests, tuplets, slurs, and non-hairpin staff lines. Chord symbols, dynamics, and some staff text may optionally be copied. Lyrics and other staff objects will not be copied.

If the "2 or more present in the source bars" option is used, hairpins will be copied if there are 2 or more hairpins or if there is 1 hairpin and 2 or more pieces of dynamics text.

If ''Copy all voices'' is unchecked, objects are copied only if they match the voice of the repeat bar rest.

For 2- or 4-bar repeats, the first bar that contains the repeat rest must be selected.

Unfolding affects both score and parts. If you make a copy of the score then run the plugin on the copy, you can use the copy for the unfolded bars, and the original score for the repeated bars.
