Editing Note Lengths with the Note Value Buttons

You can edit the note length of one or more selected notes with the note value buttons on the extended toolbar.


In the Score Settings dialog (Staff tab), the Display Quantize values for notes and rests are set up in a way that they allow to display notes of the desired note value. Depending on your settings, notes may be displayed as if they were longer than they really are.


  1. Select the notes that you want to change.
  2. Hold down Ctrl/Cmd, and on the extended toolbar, click one of the note value buttons.

    You must select a note value that is larger than the current note value.


The note length of the selected notes changes according to the note value button that you clicked.
