Copying and pasting divisions and measures

I am not able to copy and paste division and measures and then paste them into new measures. This is a new issue for me.
Before this started occurring, the problem was that when I pasted a measure into a new measure, it would add an additional blank measure in all tracks. I am just wanting to copy and paste measures and divisions so i don't have too keep inputing the notes every time. Any tips?

    Hey Rodrigo,

    An update was just released for the app today which should resolve this problem. Check the App Store and make sure you're updated to version 1.2.2.

    As for the issue of a blank measure being inserting into all tracks when pasting a measure, this is necessary due to the fact that pasting a measure inserts it into the score rather than overwriting any existing measures. All tracks must have the same number of measures, so when the pasted measure is inserted, additional measures are created on other tracks. If you would like to paste a measure and have it replace an existing measure, try the "Paste Over" command, which is triggered with Command + Option + V.

    Hope this was helpful, and let me know if you need anything else.
