Copying notes across voices

• Nov 14, 2016 - 16:27

Win 7 Pro, MS 2.0.3 3c7a69d

I'm trying to enter the attached layout which has two voices in the one stave.
As the voices are unison, I thought I could enter the notes for one voice and then copy/paste for the second voice, but no matter what I try, I can't get copy/paste to give me what I want.

I entered the notes in voice 1, copy, go to voice 2 paste-- nothing
same starting with voice 2-- nothing
Doesn't matter whether I'm in Note entry mode or not, I can't get notes in one voice to copy into a second voice.
I'm obviously missing something but what?

I know I could have entered all the notes for each voice in less time that this query, but it's the principle that bugs me.
What am I doing wrong OR what am I NOT doing that I should be doing for this to work?

Enter notes in voice 1, copy, swap voice 1 and 2, optionally move down a couple semitones, finally paste, correct the pitches. That's what I'm doing all the time with my closed score SATB scores. I usually then go on and copy the SA part, paste it to the TB part, Ctrl+down it an octave, correct the pitches (and the few places there the voices are rhythmically different), then enter the lyrics

Voice 1 on staff 1 . I create a new staff , that I put above teh staff 1. I copy the notes voice 1 of staff 1, Ipaste theses notes on staff 2, I change theses notes of staff 2 change for voice 2. I copy on staff 1 the notes with lyrics, and past on staff 2, all is good Voices.png
