Duplicating previous bar

I’d like to duplicate the previous bar without touching the mouse. When I exit note entry mode, I can shift + ctrl + left arrow to select the entire bar and then hit r. This is great…except I don’t want my dynamics or text (arco) copied across to every bar. Can I do it without deselecting the text /dynamics with the mouse? And without filters?

You could use Select More to select just notes (as long as you start with just a note/notes selected)? Ctrl/Cmd-Shift-A

Legend! Completely forgot about select more. Thanks so much!
