Coming from Finale to Cubase, Finale includes all notes, entry items and measure items when you copy. However, by using Finale’s filter you can specify which items you would like to copy—such as chord symbols or articulations—with or without affecting the notes themselves. (To learn about selecting measure regions, see Selecting music). One can easily choose any number of entry and measure items.
Is this possible in Cubase?
Let’s say, we have several issues Copy and pasting from one staff to other. For instance, the articulations and Expressions and clef are not always consistent for obvious reasons from one instruments to other. However, in the score, when we copy several measure say from Viola ( source) & paste it to French horn (target), the expressions and clef changes in the target and the result is not what we want.
If you’re coming from Finale then Cubase’s Score Editor is just not even close. It has not been updated for a long time. I would rather try Dorico, which I think is the best Notation App out there. I really wish Dorico was fully integrated into Cubase but I don’t think that will happen any time soon.
