I know this question is very spesified, and maybe there is no way to do it, but anyway :
I want to put numbers at the repeated measures for the drumplayer. This is very common in bigband style notation, and specially in one-bar repeat staffstyle.
I know very well that there is a plugin called measures/number repeated measures, but it is very simple. It gives only times new roman font, and there is no option meny for the plugin.
The ultimate thing should be numbers every four bar, ex : (4) - (8) - (12) - (16), with parantes, and in jazz og broadway font.. Just selecting all the drumpage, and click a script, and there we go!!
Is there a simple way to do this? Or a script maybe?

This is an interesting possibility. Although one caveat I need to add about your comments, the first measure in any system (staff) should never have a repeat bar. It always needs to be written out. That's a cardinal rule in publishing.
I have seen repeat bars used at the beginning of a staff in big band/show music occasionally. But the standard practice in these situations is 4 measures per line. The reminder numbers are usually placed every 4, sometimes every 2 measures. So they would never occur on the first measure of a system.
Like your example shows, I have metatools set up on (4), (8), (12) & (16). It really only takes a matter of seconds to apply these to an entire page.
