Chapter 6 Grace Notes, Beamed Grace Note... > Grace Notes: Single and Beamed

Grace Notes: Single and Beamed

In Figure 6.1, you can see I have played a series of grace notes followed by longer notes. Making these notes look right is no problemo.

1. Select the notes that you want displayed as grace notes. Under the Score Editor’s Attributes menu, choose Independent > Independent Grace. They all are displayed as 8th notes with a slash, as is traditional. See Figure 6.2.

2. Open the event list, select the main notes, and move them onto the beat. You could quantize them. The problem is that they are displayed on top of each other. See Figure 6.3.

If you look in the upper-right corner of this screenshot, you will see that the Score Editor has defaulted to the Pencil tool. Hold the mouse down and scroll to the Layout tool. After all your notes have been entered, Layout is the most valuable tool in the Score Editor.
