In many applications, holding the Alt key, and click-drag an item makes the copy of it.

Is this available in Finale (here Windows 7)?

Maybe I misunderstand the question, but what's wrong with just selecting what you want to copy (several or whole or parts of measures) and then click+drag (no Alt necessary) to wherever you want to? That makes a copy, at least it works for me (in WIN8.1 anyway, don't know about Mac).

No.

Octo, I'm not sure how practical your suggestion is, in the long run. As is well known, all items in Finale are anchored to a specific place determined by how the item was entered. These being a particular note, measure and/or staff. You can override the anchor of expressions or chords by pressing a modifier key; not so with articulations. Smart Shapes can be dragged horizontally and will change their anchor points, but not to another stave.

I use the Filter extensively for copying these kind of things.

For example, you have an Expression in one instrument, but suddently you see you need it in another instrument in another place. With Alt+drag you would simply drag it (copy) there but the original would be kept in place. I think it is very practical.

It would, but alas Alt-drag has another meaning in Finale.

right-wing cross-dressing?


Finale (started with ver. 3.0) using 2012 (2014 has been shelved for its lack of support for older Garritan libraries), putting Finale 25 through its paces.
Windows 8.1
basically ALL Garritan libraries, plus XSample Chamber Ensemble.

Just use the metatool and click it into another place. If you need it in all staves up and down, right-click, then choose assign to all staves. Or, when the handle is selected, press alt-enter and it assigns to all staves. Or, choose Assign to Staves and pick only certain staves. That DB opens with ctrl-alt-enter.

(On Mac) Alt plus click pastes the current selection, without any dragging.

In Windows (at least here on 8.1) Alt + click does nothing, Ctrl+click copies the selection (everything that is selected in Edit Filter), Ctrl+Alt+click opens the Paste Multiple choices (vertical and hoizontal)

Yes, sorry: the Mac shortcut is Alt-click: Windows is CTRL-Click.
