Extending the caret to multiple staves

You can extend the caret so it spans multiple staves. This allows you to input notes and notations onto multiple staves simultaneously, including automatically exploding the notes in chords that you play on a MIDI keyboard onto the appropriate staves.


  1. In Write mode, activate the caret in any of the following ways:
    • Select an item and press Shift-N.

    • In the Notes toolbox, click Start Note Input .

    • Double-click a rhythmic position on a staff.

  2. Extend the caret to other staves in any of the following ways:
    • To extend to the staff above, press Shift-Up Arrow.

    • To extend to the staff below, press Shift-Down Arrow.

  3. Optional: Repeat step 2 as many times as you require.
