Copy and paste causes notes in first pasted measure to transpose


quote:

When I copy and paste, 80% of the time, the first measure of the pasted section transposes itself downward an odd amount... like an 11th or so. Is anyone else experiencing this?

Thanks! Ed



SmartScore stores and applies note pitches from the source staff when notes are cut and pasted. Therefore, if you cut a range of notes from the bass clef and paste into the treble clef, pasted notes will relocate at the lower register of the treble clef (you'll probably see lots of ledger lines). The same applies to notes inside a transposed region.

No, I haven't seen that happen. I'm using Pro X V3.3 on a PC.

I have experienced this and found a work around is either to make sure bar lines are exactly the same spacing as the source copied measures. or .... just copy and paste one measure at a time. I am currently on pro ver [sign in to see URL]

Re: Copy and paste causes notes in first pasted measure to transpose


Thanks for the hints. I think I did find a 'work around' today. What I had been trying to do is duplicate parts for unison soprano and alto, unison tenor and bass lines by just copying a portion of the existing part to another existing stave, flipping the stems and pasting back into the original line. I found that it will work OK without any first measure transposition issues if I just create a temporary stave to drop the part into that while I flip stems and do the touch-up. Then just delete the temporary stave when I'm done pasting back into the original line (now Tenor + Bass, for example).

I have had the same problem. Usually because recognition puts the music into the wrong staff for what I want to do. When I try to copy and paste that into the correct staff, the first measure is transposed seriously downward. I can Ctrl-T that measure 2 octaves up and then 4 half-steps down, and most of it will be correct. How do I copy and paste a whole staff without the first measure being so far off? Using X2 Songbook version.

Use Part Linking to make sure that the staves are assigned to the proper part.

The workaround I have found is to be sure that staves to be copied FROM and TO are in the treble clef. If there is a bass clef sign where you are copying from, you should be able to paste the treble clef sign at the beginning of the staff without actually moving the notes. And the staves you are copying into will usually be blank. Then copy and paste the notes. Once all notes are pasted to all staves, paste a bass clef sign at the beginning of the first staff that needs to be corrected. Changing the clef sign will usually change the sign in subsequent systems too. It's a bit of a hassle but much easier than any other alternative I have found.

I have seen this a few times. When it happens, I just select all the notes that are transposed (they will all gray-out) and then hit shift and drag them all up or down to the right pitch.
