Selecting note/rest durations

You can select different durations for notes/rests either from the Notes panel or by using one of the assigned key commands, both during note input and for existing notes/rests.


  1. Optional: If you want to select a note duration not shown in the Notes panel, click the Show/Hide All Notes disclosure arrows at the top and bottom of the notes list to show more note durations.
  2. Select a note/rest duration in any of the following ways:
    • Press the key command for the duration you want. For example, press 6 for quarter notes (crotchets), 5 for eighth notes (quavers), 7 for half notes (minims), and so on.

    • Click a duration in the Notes panel.
