Change duration, insert mode

NoteChange duration mode: Insert

We have 2 modes to change the duration of a note. You can toggle between modes using the change duration tool available in the note toolbar.

Duration modes

The Replace mode

When using the default mode for changing note duration (the Replace mode), when you make a note longer, it will take up space by using rests or notes. Similarly, if you make a note shorter, rests will be added to fill the space.

Replace Mode

The Insert node

When you use the Insert mode to change the duration of a note, increasing a duration will push the content to the right, and reducing the duration of a note will pull back the content.
