Editing Note Lengths with the Glue Tool

You can edit note lengths by gluing notes of the same pitch together.


In the Score Settings dialog (Staff tab), the Display Quantize values for notes and rests are set up in a way that they allow you 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 glue together.
  2. On the toolbar, select the Glue tool.
  3. Click the first note.


This note is glued to the next note with the same pitch. The note length changes according. By gluing together a quarter note, an eighth note, and a sixteenth note, you get a double dotted quarter note, for example.
