Tie Two Notes

I'm new. Please help. For the life of me I can't find out how to insert a tie between two notes. Please help.


  • Hi Dorains,

    Right click on the first of the two notes you want to tie. A drop down menu will appear. Then just scroll down to the option that reads "Tie/Untie to Next Note" and click on it. Voila, your notes are tied! (If your mouse doesn't have right clicking, try pressing the control key while clicking on the note. I use a Mac and it works like a charm; things may be slightly different with a PC.) For slurred notes, highlight the notes you want to slur, then go up to the "Add More" icon at the top of the page, and chose slur from the dropdown. Good luck! :-)

    What Paul said!

    Also, a tie is created automatically if a single note spans over a barline and the middle of a 4/4 bar. So if you delete a rest, the previous note will extend it's duration, and if it's across a barline it will display it as two tied notes.

    Hope this helps!
