Advancing Selection to the Next (or Previous Chord) or Rest
In Select Mode, once you have selected a note, chord, or rest, you can advance the selection to the next (or previous) note, chord, or rest in the same staff by using a keystroke instead of a mouse click. Or, you can select another note above or below in the same chord.
Also, in Add Mode, if you are entering notes on top of existing notes, you can advance the selection from the most recently added note to the next note that follows it.
To advance the selection to the note, chord or rest at the next or previous measure-beat location:
|Use the key to advance to the next note, chord or rest. Use the key to go back to the previous note, chord or rest.|
Composer automatically turns pages as necessary to advance to the next or previous chord or rest.
To advance the selection to the next higher or lower pitched note in the same chord:
|Use the or to select the next higher or lower pitched note in the same chord.|
If there are upper and lower voice chords at the same location in the staff, Composer advances forward from the upper voice to the lower voice, and backward from the lower voice to the upper voice.
By default, Composer plays the newly selected note or chord, using the instrument sound and loudness (MIDI velocity) that would be used for the note or chord during normal song playback. You can optionally turn off the automatic playing of notes when selected.
