Copy and pasting to new clef

• May 9, 2024 - 08:18

Please see attached screenshot.
When the right hand hits middle see (circled in blue), I want to switch just that hand to the trble clef.
I can't seem to do it without creating rests.
Is there a way to do this cleanly?

The simplest way would be to have a two beat rest in the upper staff followed by the last two higher pitched triplets starting on middle C.

But you say you don't want to use rests and so an alterative would be as follows:

Put all of the upper notes in the upper staff and then move the first two triplets to the lower staff using CTRL+SHIFT+Down arrow.

But that is using cross staff notation which you also say you don't want.

I am flummoxed. Please provide a sketch of what you want it to look like.

I believe (s)he has already accepted to use the cross staff notation. See
But if I do this in a bit different way, there are no rests remaining (I didn't hide anything):

  • write the upper notes of the chord in the treble staff (blue colored in the picture)
  • write the lower notes in the bass staff (black colored)
  • use cross staff command to move a part of them to the bass staff.
  • no rest appears.

Here are two examples, the blue colored notes still belong to the treble staff:
