Is there a plugin that is able to detect and report identical consecutive measures? We need to equip those measures with numbers. Rather than checking thousands of pages for identical measures, I'd like to find a way to automate this.

Thanks for your help!

Just a wild, crazy thought:

Plug-In menu > Measures > Number Repeated Measures

The plug-in has its flaws, as discussed recently in one of the forums here:
The plug-in automatically creates expressions, and places them over the repeated measures.
But the plug-in does not give you a dialog box where you can choose font settings (font, style, Point size) nor positioning settings for the expressions.

The only solution is to customize the expressions after the plug-in has created them.

The plug-in is able to detect identical consecutive measures, but it does not "report" the identical consecutive measures.

Thanks, Peter, I appreciate your help. I must have been blind not seeing this in the Plug-In menu. It's been over ten years since I've been using Finale last time, so I have to get used to the whole thing once again.

Anyway, this solution is perfect. Detecting the numbered measures afterwards for guiding a human proofreader that checks everything is not hard.
