As title says, everything is correctly pasted (notes, dynamics) except barlines and rehearsal marks (and maybe other symbols I’ve not experimented yet). Is this the expected behavior ?
Inputting barlines again is quite a tedious task, even if alt-clicking is involved.
EDIT 1 : Question concerns selection of one or several staves within a system.
EDIT 2 : Not possible at the moment (unless system-wide), Daniel answered here.
Make sure you either use Edit > Select All to select the whole flow, which will also select all system-attached items like rehearsal marks, time signatures and barlines, or use the system track to make a selection across the whole system. Then copy and paste after you’ve selected everything you actually want to copy.
Thank you Daniel,
Indeed, if whole section is selected (either by Edit > Select All or system-track), barlines are included in the selection. However, it seems this behavior doesn’t work when selecting only a few staves within a system (either by dragging selection tool or using shift-click).
This is why Daniel explicitly wrote “or use the system track”. They’ve implemented this system track to solve exactly the problems you’re facing.
Yes, when you make a marquee selection or a block selection with Shift+click, system-attached items are not selected. You can explicitly add them to the selection one by one with Ctrl+click, but that’s normally pretty slow.
Thanks Daniel and Marc, however I may have not been clear enough (not a native speaker, I try my best !). Please let me add more details :
I do understand that system track selects everything, a few bars or some chosen beats. However, unless I missed something, it does select across the whole system, which is not what I’m trying to do. Say there’s a flute and a violin in the system : I just want to copy some part of the flute, including its bars.
I’m sorry if I’m missing something really obvious and making this topic longer than necessary !
If you only want to copy one instrument’s music and the time signatures or custom barlines, you’ll need to manually select the time signatures or barlines with Ctrl+click (Command-click on macOS).
Thanks for taking time to reply Daniel, I thought I missed something.
