The Perfect Layout plug-in has a few functions dedicated to cue notes and cue texts.
During initalization of the plug-in it tries automatically detect the "Cue Note Layer" and, if used, a "Cue Lyrics Layer w/Hidden Notes" (which some use for lyrics scaling).
If no cue notes were found, then these options ("Dedicated Cue Note/Lyrics Layer
") cannot be set.
The plug-in processes cue texts created with Finale's "Add Cue Notes" plug-in like "Fl." or "Trb.1" if they are placed in a dedicated expression category.
To detect this expression category it looks if the category names include the keyword listed in the option "Keyword for Categories with Cue Expressions
" (set to "cue" by default).
