I have a question someone can help me with. I am toying with scripts to make things easier. I would like to take an open document and have all staves show measure numbers. My problem when I do a band score is some of the staves don't show measure numbers, so I have to click each staff attribute in order to show the measure numbers. Does anyone know how to make that happen in a script. Making measure numbers show is not a problem for me in the script.

Yes I have been having this problem too. Finalescript doesn't seem to be able to access a lot of the staff attributes, which is a shame.

My (incredibly roundabout) way of achieving this was to use a combination of Applescript UI scripting and iKey (because the UI scripting mouse clicks don't work with the Staff Attributes dialog box!)

I meant to say:

1) I'm happy to share my solution/hack if you like and
2) I posted a request in the 'feature requests' post below for Finalescript to be able to access all of the staff attributes

Ooops: one more thing... Applescript and iKey would be pretty useless to you, given you're on an XP box. Sorry. But I'm sure there must be decent macro software for the PC.
