The Current Selection

In order to edit your composition, you need to be able to select the items you want to edit. Just as if you were telling someone what you wanted changed in the music, you must tell the computer what symbols to change by selecting them.

One often refers to a document's current selection. This refers to the collection of music elements that have been selected and are currently highlighted in the views. You can change the current selection by selecting other symbols.

Once music symbols are selected, you can copy, cut, delete, edit and apply actions on them.
