Copy and Paste

It works with regions just as it does with fields in FileMaker, objects in a drawing program, or icons in the Finder. Select the region or regions you want to copy, press

Copy and Paste

-C (or choose Edit Copy), click in the beat ruler to indicate where you want the Clipboard regions to reappear, and then press

Copy and Paste

-V (or choose Edit Paste). The cut or copied music appears at the position of the Playhead.

Since the regions always reappear in the tracks from which you cut or copied them, you can’t paste into a different track.
