Adding Measures

To add measures to the score, right click on a measure. The resulting popup menu has a range of options for adding measures:

Insert measures

The simplest option is Insert Default Measure: this simply inserts a new blank measure with the default count before the current measure, i.e. where you right-clicked. Insert > Default Measure After does the same thing, but inserts the new measure after the current one.

All very nice, but what if you want to add more than one measure? Or to add measures with a different count? In that case use Insert > Other Measures:

Insert Other Measures

A dialog will pop up asking you what you want to insert and where:

Choose other measures to insert

It’s pretty self explanatory: select the number of new measures you want to add, and choose whether you want to insert them before or after the current measure. Then select the count you want the new measures to have, using the usual count selection interface: it will be initialized with the default count for the score. Hit OK to insert the new measures, or Cancel to return to the score without doing anything. If you get lost at any point trying to edit the count for the new measures, Restore Defaults will reset the count to the default count.
