Title Not be able to copy alternative chord symbols Multiple chord symbols attached to same note do not copy as part of range
Severity S4 - Minor S3 - Major

Individual chords symbols - alternate or not - copy fine when I try it, and so do multiple chord symbols selected as a list. However, when copying a range selection, if there are multiple chord symbols on the same note (alternate or not), only one copies. Is this what you mean? If not, please attach your score and explain your problem in more detail.

What I wanted to say is what you say. Since the same chord progression continues multiple times, I wanted to copy it. Only one copy of the part where two chord symbols were entered in one note was copied.
As you say, “alternative or not” doesn't matter.
I am convinced that you have taught me that if you enter two chord symbols in one note, only one will be copied.
Thank you very much.

I believe this is an unintended side effect of the code designed to replace chord symbols already present in the destination - after the first chord is pasted, it is now seen as already in the destination, and thus gets replaced by the second. I guess we need to somehow detect that these were just added. We can't delete all the chord symbols before we start, because the idea was to only replace chord symbols where actually necessary.
