Move Octavas

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

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

The move operation changes only the start time of the octava. The octava still retains its original duration.

First, be sure the application is in Select Mode.

Move an Octava

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