How do I add a pickup measure?

• Oct 19, 2010 - 21:58

I've arranged a piece, and after I completed the arrangement, I wanted to change the intro to have a pick-up measure. However, I cannot find this option anywhere except when I'm originally creating a new, blank score. I cannot find anything mentioning this anywhere. Can someone please help me figure out how to add a pick-up measure AFTER the score has been created? Thank you!


Insert an empty bar Create->Measures->Insert Measure. Select the measure. Right-click on measure and select Measure Properties. Set Measure Duration->Actual to 1/4. Check Irregular.

I don't see how one can create a pickup measure at the beginning of a piece that allows you to start with a single eighth note. Anyone know how to do this?
