What it does
The Cautionary Accidentals plug-in allows
you to add cautionary accidentals in various forms to your document. Click
all the options (with or without parentheses) to have accidentals display
on all notes. The plug-in works only on standard major and minor keys.
Accidentals · Parenthesize. Select this checkbox to force courtesy
accidentals to display on notes after an accidental within a measure and
in following measures. Checking Parenthesize will cause the courtesy accidentals
to have parentheses.
Naturals · Parenthesize. Select this checkbox to force the courtesy
cancellation of an accidental from the previous measure. Checking parenthesize
will cause courtesy naturals to have parentheses.
Cancellations · Parenthesize. Select this checkbox to force courtesy
accidentals on notes after a key change. Checking parenthesize will cause
key cancellation courtesy accidentals to have parentheses.
Accidentals · Parenthesize. Select this checkbox to force diatonic
accidentals (such as B in F major) to display. Checking parenthesize will
cause diatonic accidentals to have parentheses.

continue looking for cautionary accidentals. For example, Reset After

not any measures after that. Reset After 2 Measures will only show cautionary
accidentals in the next 2 measures, and so on. This setting only affects
courtesy accidentals and courtesy naturals.
