Paste as difference voice

• Feb 20, 2024 - 12:15

Hi, Is there a way to paste as another voice ?

E.g. In condensed SATB melody, copying Alto to Tenor requires to copy the voice 2 of the first part to the voice 1 of the second part.

Is there an easy way to do this ?

For now, I'm copying the desired voice to an empty place, change the voice in-place, change the selection filter to only have the new voice selected, cut the selection and paste to the final destination. No so handy.

I know, but this is not that Use Case. "Swap voice 1 and 2" swaps in-place. The Voice 1 becomes the Voice 2, on the very same staff, and vice-versa.

I want to achieve a "Paste As Voice 2", on another staff or another or the same segment of the same staff.

See this (fictive) screenshot:


PS: This example is copying the Soprano voice to the Alto voice. I realized it with my usual workaround: copy the selection, paste it on an empty place, swap in-place, copy and repaste on the final destination

Swap, select, Selection Filter: unselect Voice 1, copy, swap back, paste, ( Selection Filter: re-select Voice 1).

In terms of clicks and actions, this equivalent to my way of doing it. There is room for improvement.
A "Paste as Voice 1", "Paste as Voice 2", ... could be nice.
I'll fill a new Feature Request or build a new Plugin for this...
