__Does the equivalent of Lock Format or Unlock Format to a full score and/or all the parts in a score, or a folder of scores. If both the score and parts are processed, the parts are processed before the score, which prevents changes in the score (especially breaks in multirests) from affecting the layout of the parts. __Like the Lock Format command it does not prevent notes from being moved, it just sets up breaks on bars to restrict layout changes. __When locking, the plugin will add breaks to bars at the ends of systems so that the current page layout is retained. __When unlocking, the plugin sets all bar breaks to default breaks. __Special Page Breaks, Split Multirests, Split Systems and Section Ends are not changed. __Updated 8 December 2017. The folder and open scores options are now functional. __Updated 14 May 2018. Added ability to change page breaks to system breaks in score and parts. __Updated 6 December 2022. Version 02.06.00. Fixed crashing bug in Unlock Format. __Updated 02 September 2023. Version 02.07.00. Adapted for subsets. __Updated 01 April 2024. Version 02.08.00. Bug fixes, New Help button, New option to remove System Breaks only.
