move measures ?

• Jun 12, 2024 - 06:53

A score I downloaded was written Verse, Chorus. I want to reverse it to be Chorus, Verse.

I want to move all chorus measures to beginning of score, i.e. say measures 21-30 to be in front of old measure #1, to be followed by old 1-20.

I try Select 21-30, CTRL-X, insert blank new measure in front of old #1, and paste into it
moves 21-30 to beginning alright, BUT also deletes old 1-20.

Must be doing something dumb.

It does ... almost. It won't cut out the measures themselves. It cuts most of the notation, but not all. I find when I'm doing something like this that it's best to copy, rather than cut. Then I can identify what (if anything) it did not copy and add that in before I Ctrl+Delete the now-superfluous measures.
