I have gone to the tutorial on this.. is makes sense, but it will not work. I have a measure in bass clef, 4 beats, all eighth notes. I need beats 3-4 notes to move into treble clef. I cannot use layering in the treble clef as it is already an octave higher (the treble clef symbol with the little 8 above it) I followed the instruction on inserting a clef midmeasure where I have already entered the notes and it stated HIGHLIGHT the notes where the clef insertion should be. IT keeps highlighting the entire measure. HOW do I do this then?

Thank you..

In Simple Entry, just press alt C at the insertion point to change the clef.

Alternatively, you should be able to select half a measure by "dragging a rectangle" from outside of the staff lines.

To highlight a partial measure, drag across the measure, but begin the dragging outside the staff.

This might be easier to accomplish from the Selection Tool.
When the partial measure is highlighted, you can switch to the Clef Tool.

It might also be easier to do from a high zoom percentage.

I have tried all of your suggestions and thank you.. I am operating on a MAC.. latest version.. I forgot to mention that.. so there isn't an ALT key.. HOWEVER.. I cannot figure out how to partially highlight the measure.. I have tried all of your suggestions and it simply keeps automatically highlighting the entire measure.. I am at a real loss here.. how do you drag across the measure.. I have tried everything possible.. again. it keeps copying the entire measure..

It is sometimes called option or opt key, but is usually called Alt. It is between CTRL and Command.

Can I just confirm that when you click and drag, you're clicking outside the staff, then dragging to a point inside the staff?

With the cursor above the measure, click and hold down the mouse. Drag diagonally across the measure, and continue until you are below the measure. Release the mouse.

It doesn't really have to be inside the staff when you release.  Outside works as well.  You must start the drag select outside the staff.  A marquee box will indicate the selected area.

BTW:  You can start by clicking anywhere outside the staff/measure, either above or below the staff/measure, and drag select in either direction, up/down, or right/left.  It all depends on where you start.
