Deleting bars/beats

You can delete whole bars and specific beats from your project completely by using the bars and barlines popover.


  1. In Write mode, select one of the following:
    • The first bar you want to delete, or the first note or rest in that bar.

    • An item at the rhythmic position from which you want to delete beats

  2. Press Shift-B to open the bars and barlines popover.
  3. Enter (minus), followed by the number of bars or beats you want to delete into the popover.

    For example, enter –6 to delete six bars, meaning the bar you selected and the subsequent five bars, or -2q to delete two quarter note beats, starting from the selected rhythmic position.

  4. Press Return to close the popover.


The number of bars or beats specified is deleted.
