Move a Tempo

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

Although you can certainly achieve the same results by adding a new tempo and removing the old, or by editing the start time of the selected tempo, it may be easier to simply move the tempo.

First, be sure the application is in Select Mode.

Move a Tempo

  • Click - but do not release - the mouse on the key you wish to move.
  • Use As you drag the mouse, the music cursor changes to the sameUsed when entering a new tempo from the Input Palette.
  • Position the cursor over the measure where you want the tempo moved to, then release the mouse to move the tempo.

Note: If you hold the Control key down when you release the mouse, the tempo is copied to the new location instead of moved.
