Hi Gorehog,

All music notation applications are initially confusing until' you get used to them.

Copy a measure by pointing at (placing your cursor in) the measure you want to copy (or in the first measure of a range that you want to copy). Then activate the Measure drop down list and select "Copy Measure" (path /Measure/Copy Measure).

A dialogue will open up and you will be able to specify the measure (or range of measures) that you want to copy. (Sensible placing of your cursor enables the dialogue to, at least, partially complete). If you have a number of tracks then you will also have the additional option of selecting just the track you are in or all tracks (check/uncheck "All Tracks"). Then click "Ok" and you have copied the measure/s.

To paste point at (place your cursor in) the measure you want to copy to (if you are pasting a range of measure then this will be the start of the paste). Then activate the Measure drop down list and select "Paste Measure" (path /Measure/Paste Measure). If you want to insert the measure/s (rather than paste over) then select the "Paste in New Measure" option; this will insert the measures before the measure that your cursor is in. (You also have the option to paste a multiple of the copied measure by increasing the number on the "Paste Count" option. Then click "OK" and you have pasted the measures.

One possible point of initial confusion might arise when you paste at the end of the track. You need to paste into a measure, you can't past in the space after the track is ended. Get around this by adding a blank measure at the end of the track before pasting.

This is really a lot more difficult to explain than to do (as you will discover).

Kind regards,

One big problem I got with this copy-thing: you cant copy a part of a measure. Let's say, you want to write a riff like E0-A2 16x in one measure. You have to type all 32 notes, till you're finished. In GP you just type them once, select both notes, Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V 15 times, which is just a way faster.

I hope, I can start programming on TG soon - this would be one of the first features I would work on.
