I have a feeling I have probably missed something really obvious. Let’s say I have a staff that I intended for “Trumpet 1 & 2”. But I initially entered a line only for Trumpet 1. Later I want to come back and add the second trumpet notes that will be exactly the same rhythms as the Trumpet 1 part.
I was hoping there would be a way I could set the cursor to the first note and then simply start playing the Trumpet 2 notes on my MIDI keyboard.
I have tried various combinations of the Chord button and the Lock Durations command bot nothing really works. When the chord button is lit, it ignores the duration of the exciting notes and does not advance to the next note. The Lock Durations seems only to work when changing a single note (i.e. not building chords).
Ultimately I copied the part to a blank staff, changed the notes, then selected both parts for a paste special -> reduce. I’m hoping there is a much better way to accomplish that.
