Working with Symbols

Cubase provides a Symbols tab that holds specific symbols that you can insert in your score.

When you select a symbol, the Draw tool is automatically selected.

If you activate Double-Click Symbol to Get Draw Tool in the Preferences dialog (ScoresEditing page), you must double-click the symbol to get the Draw tool.

If you activate Display Object Selection tool after Inserting Symbol in the Preferences dialog (ScoresEditing page), the Object Selection tool is automatically selected after you have inserted a symbol. Deactivate this option if you want to insert a lot of symbols with the Draw tool.

You can delete symbols like any other object with the Erase tool or by selecting it and pressing Delete or Backspace.

You can copy and paste notes and symbols on the note layer. If you paste note-dependent symbols, they become independent and are no longer tied to any note.
