Make Page Count Even Original Version 01.10.00 added July 18, 2020. This plugin changes the number of pages in a score as needed to make the number of pages in the score a multiple of 2, 4, or 8. This can be useful if you are printing or exporting to PDF a group of files, so scores with odd numbers of pages will be made to fill both sides of the sheets of paper.

It does this by adding or removing specially marked blank pages at the end of a score. The default, and likely most common, use is to make a score have an even number of pages. To do this leave the default settings of Multiple = 2, and the plugin will determine the closest number of pages that is a multiple of 2, and add or remove the appropriate number of trailing blank pages to make the page count match the chosen multiple.

The deletable blank pages that the plugin adds have a small hidden piece of text added with the text ~Intentionally Blank, which allows such pages to be deleted by the plugin. Do not delete this text unless you are sure you want these pages to be non-deletable. They will not show up in printouts or PDF files.

A PDF document is included in the zip file. I recommend looking it over before running the plugin.
