Copy System Optimizations (click here for details)
copies staves, groups, and positions from one system to others.
By default, it replace only the optimizations of systems containing the same instruments.
However, it can also overwrite and copy the optimization to non-optimized systems.

Scale Staff Positions (click here for details)
so as to make various optimized systems have the same total height.
The desired height is specified in EVPUs.
You can get this value by selecting the bottom staff of a system and using the Staff menu command:
Staff Usage.
With optimized systems in Page View, you should select the staff's lower handle.
This plug-in works with optimized systems only.
