simplifying unnecessary tied notes
I downloaded a score from the nets but these unvetted scores generally have problems and I like to fix problems. The score was correctly metered in 12/8 but should have had some 9/8 sections to sound right. So when I finally finished my gymnastics with time signatures, there were a bunch of originally correct dotted half notes that had at one point gotten temporarily turned into two tied dotted quarter notes tied across a bar. After I sorted everything out rhythmically now I have a bunch of tied dotted quarter notes within a bar that just clutters things up. I know I can fix it but is there some magic key where you can just select the tied notes and then do this as a single operation?
