What does it mean to select notes?
Some actions in NoteWorthy Composer can only be performed after notes or items have been selected (highlighted). For example, cut (Ctrl+X) and beam (Ctrl+B) cannot be executed until items are selected. As another example, to access the properties for a note, you must first select the note and then press Alt+Enter for the properties command.
Once an item is selected, it will appear highlighted with a different background color. Then you can access the command you want to perform on the selected notes or items.
To select a note or item:
Mouse selecting - Click and hold the left mouse button and drag over the item.
- Keyboard selecting - Place your insertion point to the left (or right) of the item, hold down the Shift key while pressing the right arrow key (or left arrow) key to highlight the item. Holding the Ctrl key at the same time will select the entire measure. Shift+End selects to the end. Shift+Home selects to the start.
