Delete alternate measures in a score

• Feb 15, 2019 - 10:07

I have a lot of scores in pdf and I want to import them in musescore in order to modify and transpose them. The problem is that sometimes the imported score does not detect properly the time signature and there are a lot of empty measures that I want to delete all at once.
Is there any possibility to select more that one measure (alternated, see for example attached image) in order to delete them all at once. Sometimes is very annoying to delete them one by one is the score is very big.

Thank you in advance for your suggestions!

I was thinking in making a plugin to delete all the empty measures in a score. This will not work in scores that have empty measures in the original form but maybe is a risk I can take. Musescore has already a functionality for deleting empty measures at the end of the score and I can adapt it in the form of a plugin.
Thank you both for your suggestions!
