Copying and pasting notes/items to multiple staves

You can copy and paste notes and other items to multiple staves at once; for example, to copy a single phrase to all the woodwind staves when they are playing in unison.


  1. In Write mode, select the notes/items you want to copy to multiple staves.

    To select multiple items of the same type, you can use large selections and/or filters.

  2. Press Ctrl/Cmd-C to copy the selected notes/items.
  3. Select an item on each staff to which you want to paste the selected items.

    The earliest selected item on the top selected staff determines the rhythmic position for pasted items on all staves.

  4. Press Ctrl/Cmd-V to paste the selected notes/items.


The selected notes/items are copied to all of the selected staves. By default, any MIDI CC points in the copied range are also pasted.

If you copied dynamics or slurs to other staves at the same rhythmic position, they are automatically linked by default.


If you selected a range of notes/items on each staff, the selected notes/items are also pasted multiple times to fill the selected range.
