I’m not sure what some of the symbols mean at the bottom of the Dorico status bar. When I’m highlighting a chord I’ve inputted, the bottom of the page status bar spits back the notes and their register, as well as a parentheses that tells you what kind of chord it is. Is there a glossary page where all the possible chords are written long-hand instead of with the symbols?
For example, I have D and Ab in a chord, with a doubled D as octave. Status bar says D4, Ab4, D5 (D-3(+alterations))
What is this chord? I feel like Dminor3 is an incorrect assessment, unless I’m missing the actual definition of the - between D and 3. Does it mean diminished? Does it mean minor? I’m not sure.
Another chord that is quite confusing is I put in B4, G#4, B5 , C5 ,E5 and I got CaugMaj7, which also seems inaccurate to me. I think I am reading the status-bar chords wrong.
TL’DR: Is there a long-hand glossary I can refer to when reading these short-hand chord symbols of the bottom page status bar?
