Copying Notes and Symbols between Bars

You can move or copy notes and symbols from one bar to one or several other bars.


  1. In the filters bar, activate Bar Handles.

    Now, each bar in the score is shown with a handle in the upper left corner.

  2. Double-click the handle of the bar from which you want to copy or move symbols.

    To select two bars, hold down Shift and double-click a bar handle.

  3. In the Bar Copy dialog, make your changes.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Do one of the following:
    • To move the event types, drag the bar handle of the first bar to the target bar.

    • To duplicate the specified event types to another bar, hold down Alt/Opt, click the bar handle of the first bar, and drag it to the target bar.


The specified objects are pasted onto notes at the same positions in the target bar.


You can also use the options in the Bar Handles section of the right zone to do this.


The actual positions of notes are used as a basis for this operation, not the displayed positions.
