Copy/Paste Doesn't Work

• Mar 22, 2022 - 00:12

I've always successfully used the copy/paste feature until yesterday. I select the measures, manually right-click "copy", but when I click paste, nothing happens. Is this a bug or am I missing something?


Hard to say from just a brief description, but if you attach your actual score and tell us which measures you are selecting to copy, and what you are selecting as the destination for the paste, we can understand and assist better. Do be sure first, though, that you don't have voice 1 unselected (and thus excluded from the selection) in View / Selection Filter). That in itself would explain failures like this, since you are saying you to copy everything except voice 1 and if there is no content in any voice, that means do nothing.

I have the same problem and have checked preferences and select filter but it still does not work on any score, i can however copy and paste on every other program

So, what didn't work? Ctrl+C (or Cmd+C on macOS)? Check your shortcut definitions in Edit / Preferences / Shortcuts to make sure they weren't customized somehow. Probably best to do Help / Revert to factory settings. If you continue to have trouble, tell us what OS, what keyboard layout, and what version of MuseScore.
