Moving Notes Graphically

You can move notes graphically. This is useful if you want to change the layout without affecting the score or playback.


  1. Select the Layout/Move Single Object tool.
  2. Click the tool button again to select one of the following:
    • To edit the position of a single note in the score, select Move Single Object.

    • To move other score objects together with the note, select Move Notes and Context.

  3. Click the note and move it to the desired position.

    Movement is restricted to horizontally only.


    You can also select all notes making up a chord by holding down Alt/Opt and clicking one of the notes with the Layout tool.


The notes are moved graphically.
