home.gif indentation insert note

Insert-mode was the default (and only) edit mode for all versions prior to MusiCAD 3 build 594.

Insert mode is active when the button insert_mode.jpg is depressed on the buttonbar.


Any note, whether entered by mouse, keyboard, MIDI buttons or menu is inserted at the cursor position. Insertion in a multi-voice score could thus lead to all kind of problems as the parts would not necessarily line up in time anymore, resulting in a messy display, and troubles in editing. However, sometimes insert-mode is just necessary to get things done correctly/easily.


Overstrike mode is most of the time easier to use, especially when arranging scores or altering melodies.
