How To Use The Cut And Paste Feature - iPad Only

Post by Forum Admin »

If you've done any musical theater, there's always a situation where you need to pull a measure, a system, or multiple systems from one score and paste it into another score. iGigBook 10 adds a cut and paste feature that makes this easy to do. Initially you will need to create a clip and you do this by selecting the note icon followed by selecting the cut icon which looks like a pair of scissors. When you have not created any clips, you will be taken directly to the clip manager. If you have created clips, select the cut icon again to enter the clip manager.

Once in the clip manager, select the scissor icon which will display a selection box that you can move and size over the area of the score you would like to capture. Tapping the inside of the selection box allows you to name the clip and save it. Once saved the selection box is cleared making it easier for you to capture the next clip.

To delete a clip, select the red circle with the minus sign to the left of the clip name.
To rename a clip, press and hold the name of the clip in the list.
