16-3. Saving a note selection range

A function has been added in Ver0.2.70 of UTAU, allowing to save a note selection range with the following method and to recall it afterwards.

(1) How to save a selection of notes

Select the range of notes you want to save, right-click anywhere on the label track then click "Name Selection" 「選択範囲に名前を付ける」.

A screen where to enter the name of the selection appears: enter any selection name then press "OK", the selection name is displayed on the label track and the selection is saved.

Note: The selection name is displayed on the label track only when all the notes of the corresponding selection are in the selected state. (It is not displayed when you select other notes or when nothing is selected.)

※ Absolutely identical selections have the same attached name, but a selection range where the selected notes differ by even one note can be saved under a different name, even if notes are overlaping.

Example: "nihoheto" 「にほへと」 and "hoheto" 「ほへと」 can be saved as separate selections.




(2) How to recall a note selection

Right-click anywhere on the label track and click "Load Selection" 「選択範囲を選択」 -> "Appropriate selection name" 「該当の選択範囲名」. The notes corresponding to the selection are now in the selected state.


(3) How to delete a saved note selection

Recall the note selection you want to delete, right-click anywhere on the label track then click "Remove Region Label XXX" 「範囲名'〇〇'を削除」.

※ As a selection name cannot be changed, delete the saved selection then save the selection range again with another name.
