Deleting bars/beats with the system track

You can delete whole bars and selected beats from your project completely using the system track, for example, if you want to delete the last beat in the final bar for flows that begin with a pick-up bar.


The system track is shown.


  1. In the system track in Write mode, select the region that you want to delete.
  2. Click Delete in the system track. It can also appear above the system track if your selection is narrow.

The selected region is deleted. Just as when Insert mode is active, music to the right of the selection moves up to fill in the gap.


Any signposts in the selection are also deleted. This can affect the page formatting, for example, by removing ossia staves whose signposts were included in the selection.
