Editing Note Positions

You can edit note time positions by dragging, by using the info line or by using key commands.


  1. On the toolbar, open the Quantize Presets pop-up menu and select a quantize preset.

    This helps you when you move notes to specific time positions.

  2. Select the notes that you want to move.
  3. Do one of the following:
    • Press Ctrl/Cmd and drag the notes horizontally to a new position.


      If you want to see the position and pitch of the note in a tooltip while you drag, activate Show Note Info by the Mouse in the Preferences dialog (Scores—Editing page).

    • On the info line, click the Start value field and change the value to move the note to a new time position.

    • Press Ctrl/Cmd-Left Arrow or Ctrl/Cmd-Right Arrow.
