Copy & Paste Measures

Copying Measures

To copy a single measure to the clipboard, right-click on it and select the Copy Measure option.

To copy multiple measures to the clipboard, first select them using the mouse. Right-click on one of the selected measures and choose the Copy Selected Measures to copy them to the clipboard. Alternatively, use the Ctrl+C keyboard shortcut.

Pasting Measures

There are 3 ways to add measures from the clipboard to your score:

  1. Insert: Right click on a measure and select the Insert Measures From Clipboard option from the pop-up menu. The measures in the clipboard will be inserted before the current measure.
  2. Replace: Select one or more measures with the mouse. Right-click on one of them and select the Paste Over Selected Measures option. The selected measures will be deleted from the score, and the measures in the clipboard will be inserted in their place. You can also use the Ctrl+V keyboard shortcut.
  3. Fill Paste: The most complicated option. Select one or more measures with the mouse, right-click on one of them and select the Fill Paste Selected Measures option. The selected measures will be overwritten with measures from the clipboard. If there are more measures in the selection than on the clipboard then the measures on the clipboard will be repeated until all the selected measures have been overwritten. You can also use the Shift+Ctrl+V keyboard shortcut.
