Copying frames

You can copy individual frames from one page to other pages in the same layout; for example, if you want the same frame to appear on multiple pages at exactly the same position. You can also copy frames to the same page; for example, if you want to duplicate a frame on a page.

  • These steps do not apply to frames on page templates. When customizing a page template, you can copy frames from the left page to the right page, and vice versa. However, you cannot copy frames between different page templates.

  • You cannot copy frames to pages in other layouts. If you want the same frames to appear in multiple layouts, you can create a custom page template.


  • The right zone is shown.

  • Frames Frames button is selected in the Engrave toolbox.


  1. In Engrave mode, open the layout in which you want to copy frames to other pages.
  2. In the music area, select the frames you want to copy.

    The frames can be on multiple pages.

  3. In the Pages section of the Pages panel, select the pages to which you want to copy the selected frames.

    You can Shift-click adjacent pages and Ctrl/Cmd-click individual pages.

  4. Right-click in the Pages section and choose Copy Selected Frames to Selected Pages from the context menu.


All selected frames are copied to the selected pages at the same positions on the page. If you copied frames to their original page, they overlay their original exactly.
