assign slurs to multiple staves

hey all,
I could not find how to add slurs to multiple staves at once. I am sure this can be done in finale?
I am not interested in adding slurs on at a time.
I tried looking thru TG tools but didn't come up with anything.
thoughts?
thanks

adding octaves?

hey all,
I am on a pc and was wondering is there a fast way to add octaves to a phrase/exercise? I am looking for a key stroke that I can create to simply add Octave part to a brass line, thinking there must be an easier way than transposing or programing a switch..>?
thanks again!

what you suggested worked! I didn't know that depending what layer you use will dictate stem directions..

Hello all, just wondering when using text for various reasons. (I.e. creating worksheets giving directions to musicians can you have a special default for font size and particular font?

slurs question

Hello all, I understand if I want to change slurs I have to go to the smart slur option dialog box. I know I have to play with settings in regards to horizontal and vertical, but was wondering if there's an easier way to create thinner slurs? Perhaps something with TG tools?
