Changing your mouse input settings

You can change your mouse input settings; for example, if you want to load a playing technique on the pointer once and input it in multiple places without having to reselect the playing technique each time.


  1. Press Ctrl/Cmd-, to open Preferences.
  2. In the category list, click Note Input and Editing.
  3. In the Editing section, choose one of the following options for Creating items with the mouse:
    • Create item at selection

    • Load pointer with item

  4. Optional: If you chose Load pointer with item, activate/deactivate Allow multiple items to be created with the mouse.
  5. Click Apply, then Close.


Your mouse input settings are changed in the current project and for all future projects.
