assign slurs to multiple staves

Post by jjvibes » Mon Aug 05, 2019 11:23 am

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

If I understand you correctly, the slurring is exactly the same in all the staves, right?

You could add the slurring to one staff, and then use the Copy Filter to copy the slurring to the other staves.

The JW plug-ins are indeed useful, but not for this, I don't think. The copy filter is going to be the easiest.

The JWLua script "Slur Phrases.lua" in the zip file below searches for phrases within a selected region in multiple staves and slurs them. Make yourself familiar with JWLua before trying it out.

Background: We discussed adding single slurs with hotkeys in the German forum. I suggested a JWLua solution which I now enhanced.

A "phrase" is everything between rests, then? That's pretty cool.
