Move Keys

Sometimes you may wish to move an existing symbol to a different location.

Although you can certainly achieve the same results by adding a new symbol and deleting the old one, it may be easier to simply move the symbol.

First, be sure the application is in Select Mode.

Move an Symbol

  • Click - but do not release - the mouse on the symbol that you wish to move.
  • As you drag the mouse, the music cursor changes to the sameUsed when entering a new symbol from the Input Palette.
  • Align the dashed line with the beat where you want the symbol moved to.
  • Release the mouse to move the symbol to the specified location.


Select the symbol you wish to move with the mouse.

Press and hold the CTRL Key on your keyboard while you press one of the arrow keys.
