Cloning a Staff
Sometimes you may want to clone (copy) an entire staff, such as to back up a staff before you experiment with some new musical ideas for that staff. The procedure for cloning a staff is simple.
To create a new staff as a copy of another:
|If the staff controls are visible, then click the Staff Selection button to select the first staff:
|Choose the Clone Staff command from the Staff menu.
Musician will display the Clone Staff dialog box.
|In the Clone Staff dialog box, confirm the staff you selected in step #1.
-- OR --
Select a staff that you wish to copy.
|If you are cloning the staff for backup purposes, then you will likely want to mute the newly cloned staff. See Muting and Soloing Staves for instructions.
