Copying and pasting notes/items

You can copy and paste items, including notes and notations, to other rhythmic positions and staves in different ways.

Procedure

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

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

  2. Copy the selected notes/items to other rhythmic positions in any of the following ways:
    • Alt/Opt-click each position to which you want to paste them.

    • Press Ctrl/Cmd-C, select the position to which you want to paste them, then press Ctrl/Cmd-V.

    • To repeat the material directly after itself, press R.

    • To copy notes/items to the staff above, select them and choose Edit > Paste Special > Duplicate to Staff Above.

    • To copy notes/items to the staff below, select them and choose Edit > Paste Special > Duplicate to Staff Below.
