I am aware that this may have been (partially) discussed before, however, I find it truly baffling as to why the 8ba and 8va have no effect - not even in a transposing score(!).
Dorico is a composing tool.
However, the current situation is that I have to choose between either seeing the wrong notes or hearing the wrong notes whenever 8ba or 8va clefs are involved.
I know that a workaround exists (adding a 8ba line and sizing it to zero) - however, this is disruptive to the workflow since during composition I don’t know how long the 8ba / 8va section might become and I am never sure if it’s length might extend or be truncated.
This is especially annoying when writing parts for singers, where a chorus might be in a different clef than the verse!
Composing choir sections is such a headache when I have to decide between managing workarounds and viewing the wrong notes.
Does anyone know of any setting or function that will transpose notes when using oct. transposing clefs?
The existing discussion, which centers around guitar parts, helps not at all where voice is concerned - especially since in voice the transposing clef might be replaced with a normal clef for some sections of the piece (in order to improve readability)… you don’t use an 8ba or 8va line for a whole section.
