As you've seen in the last couple of videos, fast methods of adding performance…markings are very useful.…Let's take a look at one more method, Finale Smart Find and Paint function.…So please open the file that's in the 9_05 folder and let's locate this to Measure 16.…Now this group of dynamics and smart shapes that are attached to the Alto part…here, need to go in many places and you can look across here and see the similar…rhythms that are happening.…So I can take this one occurrence and copy it using the Smart Find and Paint function.…
So I am going to select these two Measures, then I am going to go to the Edit…menu, and I am going to choose SmartFind and Paint, Set SmartFind Source Region.…So I will click that and now we see a box around these two Measures.…Now I can go back into that menu, choose SmartFind and Paint again, and choose…Apply SmartFind and Paint.…Now if you want you can use these key commands, which would be Command+F to set…the region and then Shift+Command+F to start painting and that would be Ctrl+F…
