Moving slurs rhythmically

You can move slurs to new rhythmic positions after they have been input.


  1. In Write mode, select the slur you want to move.

    You can only move one slur rhythmically at a time.

  2. Move the slur to other noteheads on the staff in any of the following ways:
    • Press Alt/Opt-Right Arrow to move it to the next notehead on the staff.

    • Press Alt/Opt-Left Arrow to move it to the previous notehead on the staff.

    • Click and drag it to the right/left.


The slur is moved to other noteheads on the staff.


The rhythmic duration of the slur is usually maintained. However, depending on the rhythms it crosses as it moves, the slur may cover longer/shorter durations than before it was moved.
