copying a pedal line so that length remains the same
I want to reproduce a pedal line that is exactly one measure long, reaching from the first note of a measure to the first note of the next. In other words, I want to duplicate the horizontal length from the original pedal line to the copy.
Following the CNTL-SHIFT procedure, I click on my model pedal line, then drag to where I want the copy to start (at the end of the model I am copying). The starting point for the copy is correctly interpreted, but Instead of getting the same length pedal line, I get one about half the length of the model.
I can of course click on the short copy and stretch it to the desired end point, but isn't there a way to do an exact length duplication of a line element? I couldn't find anything about this in copy/paste in the manual.
