Added 17 October 2020. Original Version 01.10.01.

This plugin redefines the built-in Arpeggio Up line to look like a vertical bracket. You can no longer use that line for its original purpose, but you can now add the line in the 5th keypad layout to create self-adjusting vertical brackets attached to notes for things like double stops and un-arpeggiated Harp chords.

Like many interesting ideas, this came from Philip Rothman, and this plugin is dedicated to him.

A PDF file and a House Style file will be downloaded when this plugin is installed. I suggest reading the PDF.

Each time you run this plugin on a new score you must first export a House Style named NABracket_Temp from the score. The plugin will import part of that House Style to restore possibly replaced Symbols and Text styles, and it will then delete the temporary House Style. See the PDF or Help for details.

You only need to export the House Style once per score.

Updated 13 November 2020. Version 01.10.02. Updated some of the Do Not Show Dialog code.
