Pasting Notes from the Clipboard

You can paste notes from the clipboard into your score.


  1. Activate the staff into which you want to paste notes.
  2. Hold down Alt/Opt-Shift, and click at the position in the score where you want the first note to appear.

    This moves the project cursor to that position.

  3. Select Edit > Paste or use the default key command Ctrl/Cmd-V.


The notes are pasted into the score, beginning at the project cursor. If the cut or copied notes come from different staves, they are also inserted on different staves. Otherwise, the notes are inserted on the active staff. They keep the pitch and relative positions they had when you cut or copied them.
