Is there any way to select all the notes on a score and move them up one octave with one shortcut, or do I have to actually click on each note and press Shift-Up Arrow?  Thanks if anyone knows!  (this is in finale notepad)

In NotePad, I think you're stuck. Sorry.

If I remember correctly, you can change the key of a piece in notepad and it will then transpose the notes accordingly. The trick is to do two transpositions so that you wind up back in the original key, but with the notes an octave higher.

Fritz,
You are correct. I now remember hearing about that trick. Thanks.
To the OP:
This will only work for the entire piece, since NP will only change the Key Sig at the beginning. Choose the Key Signature tool, and in the dialogue box, select any new key sig, and click Move Notes Up, and OK. Repeat, with your original key sig, again moving up.
If you want to only do this for a portion of the work, you'll have to do it note by note.

A trick to do the octave shift for just part of the piece:
Save your original file and make a copy.
In the copy, change the key twice to get the notes up an octave (or down)
Copy the portion you want back into your original file.

In Notepad 2006 you can highlight notes with the mass edit tool and press (qwerty) 6 to raise notes one step at a time, (qwerty) 7 to lower selection one step.
This feature seems to have been removed from Notepad 2007 and 2008.

The up and down arrows do the same thing, are are much more intuitive, I think.
