Transferring notes

When I set up a new project and want to copy and paste notes from an older project, what attributes do the old notes bring with them? Say, the old notes didn’t play because their instrument wasn’t set up correctly or had a different tuning. Will the pasted notes assume the properties of the new project? (I’m about to start a new project in Dorico 4 and want to use a Dorico 3.5 score .)

Hi Nancy, I generally find that notes are copied with most, if not all, of their properties. Certainly playback suppression.

Reading your post again, I should say that is when notes are copied and pasted. If an instrument was not set up correctly and does not playing that correctly, opening that same file the new version won’t change that.
