Convert a partiture from 6/4 to 6/8

• Jun 2, 2021 - 21:50

Dear all,
I have a Partiture that has been inappropriately typed for 6/4 instead of 6/8.
What I need to do is basically to half all the values of the notes, without introducing pause between notes.
Is there a way to do it without having to retype the whole partiture ?
Looking forward your advice.


Select everything (CTRL+A), cut (CTRL+X) and then paste 1/2 duration (CTRL+SHIFT+Q). Then change the time signature to 6/8. Simple!

Thankyou @SteveBlower !
It worked perfectly as you described, only difference being that since I am using a Mac the control sequence is slightly different (CMD+A, CMD+X, SHIFT+CMD+Q). Again something new to learn, I was not aware about the existence of the possibility to paste with half or double time... Kudos to the MuseScore development team !
