Replaces selected lines of a specified style with lines of another style, effectively providing a mechanism to change the style of lines.

System lines can only be replaced by system lines, and staff lines by staff lines.

The plugin is in English, but it will correctly replace lines whose style names are in different languages.

Updated 31 July 2010 to pick up system lines that are the only thing in the selection.

Updated 2 August 2010 to pick up all user lines in the score, not just those in the selection.

Updated 8 October 2010 to restore custom drawing order and magnetic layout properties. Version 1.05.

Updated 18 February 2019. Version 01.06.00. Code tidying.

Updated 4 December 2019. Version 01.06.10. Removed unwanted debugging line written to the trace window.

Updated 30 January 2021. Version 01.07.00. This plugin adds a new Line and deletes the original. Added more general routine to transfer Bar Object properties to the new Line. Color, ColorAlpha, CueSize, Hidden, and other properties are now retained.
