copying one voice from a line

If I write a cello line with multiple voices and then I decide to copy just the second cello voice to the base line, can I do it in one click?

What's the best way to copy a bar of cello (notes only) into the measure of the base, but copy the effects (articulation, dynamics, hairpins, ) from a previous base measure. For example, say my cello has 12 bars of notes that follow a constant rhythmic pattern, but of different notes in each bar. i copy the first cello bar to the base and add hairpins, dynamics, articulation etc. Now I want to copy the rest of the cello bars (11 other bars) but keep up the hairpins, dynamics and articulation I just worked out for the first bar. Can I just copy those effects and superimpose them on the cello notes now in the base line? Can I dress up notes with effects of different measures, is my question.

It's always easier to advise if you post an actual score so we can see exactly what you mean, but in general, you can copy a list of articulations forms one passage to another by selecting them (eg, click one, shift+click another to select all in that range) then copy & paste as per usual. Same with dynamics. But hairpins cannot be copied this way.
