Selection

While working with a project you can select various fragments of the score to modify their properties or perform actions on them. Depending on the contained score elements selection fragments can be of Musical events or Bars types.

Musical events fragment

Usually when a file is just opened the first musical event of the first voice on the first track is selected. That means that the current fragment type is Musical events and actions like copy, cut or paste are applied just to chosen musical events, not bars.

To choose another musical event tap on its area or navigate to it using arrow keys Arrow Up Arrow Down Arrow Left Arrow Right and ForwardForward button.

Clicking the Forward button or Right Arrow key creates a new musical event until the bar is filled according to its time signature. When the last musical event of the last bar is reached it creates a new bar.

To select multiple musical events long press on the selection area, wait until the border appears, not releasing the mouse button pull left or right to include additional musical events before or after the current one, and finally release the mouse button.

If you want to select all musical events in the current track click Select TrackSelect Track button or Shift Command Arrow Right .
