Document Actions



Many actions that normally apply to individual notes or staves can also be applied to the document as a whole. When nothing else is selected the Properties Palette displays the properties for the active document. The available "document actions" are displayed in the ribbon menu (most of them in the tab "Score") as well as the Actions tab of the Properties Palette.


For example, suppose you want to transpose (Tab: "Home") or quantize (Tab: "Record") the entire document. One way would be to select each staff individually, then apply the action on the selected staves. An easier way, however, is to clear the selection and apply an action to all staves at once.
