Do one of the following:
*
To move notes to the active track. Hold down the ALT key and right-click any selected note.
*
To move notes to a different position in the active track. Hold down the ALT key a drag any selected note with the right mouse button. Tip: Hold down ALT+SHIFT to restrict vertical or horizontal movement.
*
To copy notes to the active track. Hold down CTRL+ALT and right-click any selected note.
*
To copy notes to a different position in the active track. Hold down CTRL+ALT a drag any selected note with the right mouse button. Tip: Hold down CTRL+ALT+SHIFT to restrict vertical or horizontal movement.
Tip: If you prefer to always paste copied notes into the active track, click the Piano Roll view Notes menu and select Always Paste Copied Notes into Active Track. This allows you to copy notes to the active track without having to the use the ALT key and right mouse button.
Tip: When Auto Lock is disabled and using the Smart tool to lasso select notes, you can temporarily limit selection to the active track only. This prevents unintended selection of notes in other tracks. To do so, hold down the SHIFT key while dragging with the right mouse button. Only notes in the active track will be selected.
