Run the plugin from the 'Plugins' tab, or assign a shortcut to it in the Plugin Manager.The plugin will detect if there is a selection and apply itself accordingly (Note: it will always apply itself to whole measures). MuseScore's Undo/Redo commands work as usual.

If the plugin crashes, an error message will appear at the end of the score.


Here are some things you can do to avoid issues with the plugin:
* Regroup rhythms: The plugin works best when all of your sheet's rhythms are notated correctly. If you know what you're doing, great! If you don't, run 'Tools/Regroup Rhythms' before running the plugin.
* 2nd+ Voices: The plugin might not work correctly if there are any deleted rests in voices 2-4. If you don't want a rest to be seen, make it invisible instead.


To create your own custom rules, see 'presets/timesig template'. There you can define rules for in general or for specific time signatures.
