How to get a whole note over eights?

I’m trying to figure out how to get a whole note to cover the bar while I have eighth notes played throughout. When I try changing this first D to a whole note it erases all the eighth notes. Please see the attached screenshot to understand what I mean.

Use shift-V to make a new downstem voice for your eighth notes, while your whole note stays in the upstem voice.

If you’ve already entered the 8ths in upstem voice 1, you don’t need to delete and re-enter. You can select them, right-click, and change voice to new downstem voice 1.

Works like a charm, thanks guys! :slight_smile:
