Layers and Cues

The plug-in can move all notes that were accidentally inserted in upper layers to layer 1. It doesn't do it when the layer has different playback attributes or if it contains resized notes (probably cue notes).
The option "Remove Unnecessary Use of Layers 2-4" is checked by default.
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).

If the option "Scale Cue Expression with Note Entry" is selected, then the cue expression will get be reduced like the note entry (activated by default).
It's possible to let Perfect Layout hide some symbols in cue measures: hairpins and custom lines are hidden by default (Option: "Hide Hairpins and Custom Lines In Cue Measures"). In the Gold edition you can also automatically hide trills (Option: "Hide Trills in Cue Note Measures", deactivated by default).
