Selecting multiple items using marquee selections

You can use a marquee selection to select multiple notes and notations at the same time within a specific area in Write, Engrave, and Play modes.


  1. In the status bar, click Marquee Tool .
  2. In the music area, click and drag across the area where you want to select everything.

    A gray rectangle indicates which notes and notations will be selected. We recommend that you click in one corner of the area you want to select and drag diagonally across to the other corner.


When you release the mouse, all notes and notations in the area within the gray rectangle are selected.


Only items completely within the area are selected. However, if any part of a note/tie chain is within the area, the whole note/tie chain is selected.
