Added 06 Apr 2017 (last updated 05 Apr 2023)

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

__Sets the X and Y offsets of selected objects, as the inspector does (Absolute mode), or uses X and Y values to shift the position of selected objects (Relative mode). __It can serve as a replacement to the X Y positions of the Inspector in some cases, and adds the ability to shift the positions of objects. __As with any plugin, it can be assigned to a shortcut key. __It will adjust the right end of lines by the same Y amount the left end is moved so the slope of the line is unchanged. __By default, the initial focus is in the X edit box. If you run the plugin with no selection you can set the initial focus to go to the Y edit box instead. __Updated 22 April 2020. Version 01.07.00. Added ability to move just the left or right end of a line, in addition to being able to shift both ends at once. __Updated 14 September 2020. Version 01.08.00. Move both ends code was not adjusting right end. Fixed now. __Updated 16 September 2020. Version 01.09.00. Added ability to hide dialog during the Sibelius session and to retain the values from the last run in the edit boxes. __Updated 5 April 2021. Version 01.10.01. __Dialog controls were rearranged, and some new controls were added. The control to hide the dialog is now a 3-tate drop down listbox allowing you to show the dialog always, hide it for one Sib session, or hide it unless the plugin was run with no selection. The dialog will always come up if there is no selection. __Updated 17 April 2021. Version 01.11.00. __ Fixed Preview, which was net being reset. When the dialog comes up with no selection, the Previous and OK buttons are now disabled. Previously if you chose Relative and both values were zero, it was treated as an error. Now these settings will cause the selected objects to be reset to their default positions. A warning will appear the first time this happens in a Sibelius session. __Updated 18 April 2021. Version 01.11.01. Fixed crash when using the up and down buttons. Thanks to Michele Galvagno for pointing out the problem. __Updated 21 April 2021. Version 01.11.02. Added ability to have outside callers hide dialog. __Updated 5 April 2023. Version 01.11.03. No change in code. Updated version to force update. Includes helper plugins, which run without dialogs, and can be used with shortcuts for fine tuning. These require the plugin cmdutils, which must be installed: Set X Offset Left 06_CP, Set X Offset Left 03_CP, Set X Offset Right 06_CP, Set X Offset Right 03_CP.
