I want to copy and paste my soprano line into |
voice 1 of the upper staff of a piano part and my
alto line into voice 2 of the same staff, etc.
I DO NOT want to use the piano reduction plugin,
as it turns the soprano and alto into a single
"voice," and in the process does not retain the
independent rhythms of each musical line.
Is there a way to do this on Finale?

Turn on Show Active Layer Only in the View menu and then do the copying. With this selected it will not copy over the other layer.|

Might I also suggest you use layers instead of voices.|
I've never seen a practical use of voices over layers. There is much
more flexibility in the latter.

Thank you very much. That worked perfectly. I |
tried sending you a thank you email, but it was
"returned" to me as undeliverable.

Oops! I never use the "voices" thing either, but |
as a musician, I can't help but think of each
individual line as a voice, and I always enter
those in separate layers.
