Chord Styles Plug-in for Finale®

Youtube screencam demonstration: Converting the chord style in Finale
Video 1: In this demo the chord plug-in was called consecutively several times.
Then everything was undone. The video starts at that moment and every call
of the plug-in is redone manually (to save processing time in the video).

Video 2: Real-time demonstration.
