I think this program is excellent and have had very few problems. That said, is there a quick way to place a slur above the stave. I am currently selecting a note , pressing S, double click on the resulting slur, and moving each of the 4 points from below the stave to above it. Is there a quicker way? I cannot locate any relevant documentation


Thankyou for your prompt and helpful replies to my queries.

I have tried to manually adjust beams and so far failed.
In a 2/4 bar I have, rep [ quaver, semiquaver rest , semiquaver] [ quaver, semiquaver rest , semiquaver].
The program places the beam connecting the semiquaver to the succeeding quaver. I would wish to connect it to the preceding quaver. I have managed to remove the beam that connected the semi quaver to the succeeding quaver by clicking the "start beam " on the succeeding quaver. How do I tell it to place a new beam across the semiquaver rest to the following semiquaver.

I hadn't tried to beam over a rest before so it took me a moment to work it out as well. Below are instructions for your specific case.

  1. Drag a "start beam" to the second quaver. This will remove the erroneous beam. (If you are using the 0.9.4 prereleases you can skip this step since this particular beaming issue is fixed)
  2. Drag a "start beam" to the first quaver
  3. Drag a "middle of beam" to the semiquaver rest
  4. Repeat steps 2-3 for the second set of notes
