Order and print parts from multiple scores

For use with Sibelius 7, Sibelius 7.5 and 8 (This plugin will not run on Sibelius 6)

Version 1.0

This plugin enables the user to order and print parts from more than one score. It is designed for situations where different sections of a large scale work are contained in different files and allows for the printing, for example, of all the Flute 1 parts in the desired order and then all the Flute 2 parts etc.

It also allows different printing configurations (i.e. number of copies per part) to be saved and loaded.

The plugin only works with the default printer, and this should be set before running Sibelius.

When run, the plugin works through a series of dialogs.

The first allows the user to choose whether to open a folder of scores or use the ones already opened.

The second allows the user put the scores into printing order.

The third is used create the part groups. Only parts contained in groups are printed and a group may consist of one or more parts. This is to allow for situations where one score, for example, contains a Flute 1 and a Flute 2 part and another score contains Flutes 1&2. The first group would then contain Flute 1 and Flutes 1&2 and the second group Flute 2 and Flutes 1&2, hence each player gets his or her part. Groups can be reordered and the number of copies changed. (Note that the default number of copies in the original files is ignored.) Part groups can also be saved or loaded as text files.

The final one lists the order in which the individual parts will be printed.
