QuickScore Elite How To

How to copy sections of music

Getting Started  Tutorials  Manual  MIDI and Audio

Music can be copied in the Score Editor, the Piano Roll Editor, the Event List, the Song Editor and the Controller Editor.

In the Score Editor notes, text, lyrics, expression text or symbols can be copied. The type of object to be copied is selected by clicking on the appropriate button in the object type palette. Make sure the arrow tool is selected in the toolbar. Select the objects to be copied by double-clicking on them, control-clicking on them, or dragging the mouse over them. Choose Copy from the Edit menu to store the selected objects to the clipboard. Now move the cursor to where you would like the objects to be pasted. Choose Paste from the Edit menu or press the INSERT key to paste the selected objects to the current position. When objects are pasted, they are merged with data already on the track.

In the Piano Roll editor notes or wave files can be copied. Make sure the arrow tool is selected in the toolbar. Select the notes or waves to be copied by double-clicking on them, control-clicking on them, or dragging the mouse over them. Choose Copy from the Edit menu to store the selected objects to the clipboard. Now move the cursor to where you would like the objects to be pasted. Choose Paste from the Edit menu or press the INSERT key to paste the selected objects to the current position. When objects are pasted, they are merged with data already on the track.

In the Controller Editor different kinds of continuous data, including controllers, aftertouch and tempo can be copied. The type of object to be copied is selected by choosing it from the data type list box. Make sure the arrow tool is selected in the toolbar. Select the objects to be copied by double-clicking on them, control-clicking on them, or dragging the mouse over them. Choose Copy from the Edit menu to store the selected objects to the clipboard. Now move the cursor to where you would like the objects to be pasted. Choose Paste from the Edit menu or press the INSERT key to paste the selected objects to the current position. When objects are pasted, they are merged with data already on the track.

In the Event List every single data type can be copied. Select the objects to be copied by control-clicking on them, or dragging the mouse over them. Double-clicking on an object in the Event List will allow you to edit it. Choose Copy from the Edit menu to store the selected objects to the clipboard. Choose Paste from the Edit menu or press the INSERT key to paste the selected objects to the current position. In the Event List you can change the current position by clicking on the Time Display in the main control area. When objects are pasted, they are merged with data already on the track.

In the Song Editor, data is selected by dragging the mouse over a group of tracks and a group of bars. Choose Copy from the Edit menu.

When you choose Copy you bring up the Arrange dialog. If you have selected more than one track, the dialog title reads "Arrange Multiple Tracks - NOT UNDOABLE!". If you have only selected one track the dialog title reads "Arrange Track n" (where n is the number of the track you selected). You use the Arrange dialog to cut or copy whole sections of your music and possibly paste them somewhere else. You can arrange all your tracks, some of your tracks or just one track.

Copy will make a copy of your selection without deleting it. All the objects you select are affected by the Arrange dialog.

The bars you have selected will be shown in the From and To times. If you want to adjust the starting and ending times for your range, you can do that here. The From and To times do not have to be on bar boundaries.

The Paste To box is automatically checked.

Note that Arrange does not copy anything to the clipboard, so if you select Copy and uncheck Paste To nothing will be accomplished.
