Copy and past measures of mutiple staves
With this tool you can copy and paste measures of multiple staves, including the lyrics.

Via the dialog you can specify

- copy and past or cut
- the first measure to copy or cut
- the last measure to copy or cut

Multimeasure rests are split, if necessary.

Attention: beware of ties and slurs that could be cut at the start or the end of the measures to copy.

Remarks and bug reports are welcome.

Installation:
- download the file into your tool folder;
- open any nwc file;

Thank you for this. I will give it a try tomorrow. If it works, or to be more accurate, if I can figure out how to use it, it will be a big time saver!

Addendum: Although the subject tells you the tool is intended for treating multiple staves, you can also use it for 1 staff if you want to copy and paste staff objects + lyrics.

This is great.  One useful additions would be the option to cut rather than copy.  Moving sections around is quite common (for me).
