Moving divisi changes

You can move divisi changes to new rhythmic positions after you have input them. Because the start and end of divisi passages have separate signposts that you can move independently, you can also lengthen/shorten divisi passages.


  1. In Write mode, select the divisi change signposts you want to move.

    When using the mouse, you can only move one divisi change signpost at a time.

  2. Move the divisi changes according to the current rhythmic grid value in any of the following ways:
    • Press Alt-Right Arrow to move them to the right.

    • Press Alt-Left Arrow to move them to the left.

    • Click and drag the divisi change signpost to the right/left.

  3. Optional: Repeat steps 1 and 2 for the signposts at the other end of the divisi passages.


The selected divisi change signposts are moved to new rhythmic positions. Any music on divisi staves now outside divisi passages is automatically hidden, and any unison ranges before/after divisi passages are automatically updated according to the new start/end positions of the divisi passages.


Only one divisi change signpost can exist at each rhythmic position. If a divisi change signpost passes over another divisi change signpost as part of its move, the existing divisi change signpost is deleted and replaced by the divisi change signpost being moved. For example, if you move the start signpost of a divisi change over its tutti restoration, the divisi passage now continues up to the next divisi change on the staff or the end of the flow, whichever comes first.

You can undo this action, but any divisi change signposts deleted in the process are only restored if you moved the divisi change signpost using the keyboard.
