Delete Leading Or Trailing Empty Bars

Version 01.90.00
Added 06 May 2020 (last updated 06 May 2020)

For use with Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x, Sibelius 18.x, Sibelius 19.x and Sibelius 20.x

This is an upgrade to and replacement of the plugin Delete Leading Empty Bars, adding the ability to delete empty trailing bars (empty bars at the end of the score). Original version 01.90.00.

The description of the original Delete Leading Empty Bars plugin follows.

This plug-in will delete empty bars from the start of the score up to a specified stopping point.

Before deleting, it moves any system objects, such as Title text, from the bar(s) to be deleted to the first bar that is not deleted. A title page will be preserved.

Only use the ''Delete bars before bar number'' option if bars numbers are always ascending.

There are some options to determine what the plugin will consider to be an empty bar.

This plugin was written to help with the large number of empty bars that can be added to a score when transferring from Pro Tools to Sibelius.

Plug-in written by Bob Zawalich.
