What it does

When you copy music using the Paste Multiple command, Finale offers you the chance to create multiple copies, placed one after another. For example, if you want a one-measure bass figure to repeat three times, you need only enter it once (in the first measure); then, you can use the Selection tool icon to copy it into the second measure using the Paste Multiple command. This dialog box is displayed, asking how many times you want it copied; for example, enter 3 for Paste Horizontally and click OK. Finale copies the selected measure into measures 2, 3, and 4.

  • Paste Horizontally: ___ Times • To the End of the Score. Enter the number of times you want the selected music copied horizontally (towards the end of the score). If you enter a number higher than 1, Finale places the additional copies after the first copy, on the same set of staves. Choose To the End of the Score to replicate the source material throughout all subsequent measures in the score.
  • Paste Vertically: ___ Times • To the Bottom of the Score. Enter the number of times you want the selected music copied vertically (towards the bottom of the score). If you enter a number higher than 1, Finale places the additional copies beneath the first copy, on subsequent staves of the system. Choose To the Bottom of the Score to replicate the source material throughout all subsequent staves in the score.
  • Cancel • OK. Click OK (or press RETURN) to confirm, or Cancel to discard, the changes you’ve made and return to the score.
