  2. Choose Edit > Move/Copy Layers.

What it does

The Move/Copy Layers command provides a way to move music from one layer to another. You can even swap the music between layers—if, for example, you mistakenly entered several stems-down notes in Layer 1, which you intended to use only for stems-up (upper) voices. You can also copy layers while leaving the original notes intact.

Tip. To display and work with (mass copy etc.) layers individually, activate the layer you want to copy, and then, from the Document menu, choose Show Active Layer Only.

Note: If you set up these controls so that the contents of more than one layer get moved into the same other layer, Finale will only move the highest-numbered layer’s contents. For example, if you indicate that you want the contents of Layers 2, 3, and 4 moved into Layer 1, only Layer 4’s music will actually be moved.
