Do you think you can add a section of your plugin page (with a link to the webpage within the plugin window if possible) that helps guide a user to the best/most up-to-date plugin for a particular task?


What I'm thinking of doing in the future is to move the "outdated" plug-ins from the general download sections into a separate download section. Working on such a description list takes lots of administration time, that I rather use for other tasks. JW Change alone will have more than 100 functions.

This question made me wonder, "With all the JW Plugins out there, do I really know the best one to use for a certain task just by reading its name?"
Just look at all of them (You've been busy)! I don't even know which ones have been replaced by others (e.g., Keep Lowest Line vs Chord Manager).
 
 
Do you think you can add a section of your plugin page (with a link to the webpage within the plugin window if possible) that helps guide a user to the best/most up-to-date plugin for a particular task?
 
For example, the web page would have a hyperlink tree which the user could click through. Each click opens up branches that eventually lead to the best answer: 
I want to...
Move... (or Hide, Resize, Delete, etc...)
Notes... (or Rests, Beams, Expressions, Stems, etc...)
From chords... (or From a Layer, From a Multipart staff, etc.)
VIOLA! The plugin you should use is JW Chord Manager v.1.2
And then the user can click on the suggested plugin to download it (or go to the download page) if they don't already have it. Every time someone asks a question like the OP you can add a branch to the tree.

Use JW Chord Manager instead, it can do it all.

Mr. Williamsson would it be possibile to get you to make an alteration to one of your plug—ins that I use quite a bit?
It is the “JW Keep Topmost Line” and “Keep Lowest Line”. Although I don't use it as you had in mind, I do fine each very helpful.
I would respectively request you could make a “Delete Topmost Line” and “Delete Lowest Line”. This would cover almost any situation I encounter and possibly help others also.

My normal procedure is to make a three, four or five staff concept 'score'. When it is finished I copy and paste parts into my 'full score'. Mostly I combine lines like Alto 1&2, Clarinet 2&3 or Flute/Oboe, etc, and your plug-in comes in handy. The addition of the delete plug-ins would be great!
