simultaneous notes with different lengths

• Mar 28, 2024 - 15:09

I'm just beginning and though I can easily find most informations, I missed this one : how can I write a combination of notes that do not last the same length ? For intent a E that lasts 1 beat AND a B that lasts 3 beats played simultaneously on the same treeble key ? Each time I'm trying to add a note with a different length, it wipes out the previous one. I could write E and B on the same place only if they had same duration using keyboard Alt pressed.

and those special modes (e.g. insert), which only apply in very special cases:
