Version 01.70.00
Added 10 Mar 2021 (last updated 10 Mar 2021)

For use with Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x, Sibelius 18.x, Sibelius 19.x, Sibelius 20.x, Sibelius 21.x, Sibelius 22.x and Sibelius 23.x

First Version added 10 March 2021. Original version number 01.70.00.

Indents the first bar in a score (the active score or part) by setting the Gap Before bar value. The default indent is 10 spaces, but this can be changed.

It will optionally indent the first bar of each movement in the score, if the appropriate boxes are checked (Section End, Final Barline), and the score is set up to mark section ends as the plugin expects. The checkboxes are off by default.

No selection is needed; any selection is ignored. The first bar and marked movement bars will always be indented.

Dialog setting will be saved across Sibelius sessions.

This is a cut-down version of the Gap Before Bar plugin, which is capable of doing more things. This was extracted for Kevin Gibbs and the Sight-Impaired Sibelius community.
