how to draw dotted notes?

Post by kinkajou » Fri Sep 30, 2005 8:44 am

...how can i draw "dotted" notes very fast?

at the moment i draw for example a 1/4 note at a 1/4-grid, go to 1/8-grid and draw this note an 1/8 longer and then switch back to the 1/4-grid...

can't find any solution for this, maybe i'm blind or is there no other way?

thanx, but i don't mean to draw it very fast note by note.
i'm looking for a much faster way to draw dotted notes WITHOUT changing the grid (and also without COPY/PASTE 8) )... mhhh, can't describe it better, sorry... :oops:

... any shortcuts available?

let me expalin it on another way:
its much much easier to draw triplets... using STRG 1 (or 2?) and you got -for example- an 1/8T -grid -> how to switch to 1/8D or 1/8* (both means DOTTED ;) )


...i hope you understand my problem now... :oops: :wink:

I do it kind of like you do know. I don't think there's another solution. You can use the ctrl-1 and ctrl-2 keys to switch rapidly though.

Or if you want to work with 1/8 triplets, work in 1/16 standard.
