I have been trying to get Dorico 4 Elements to generate chord symbols from selection, but have been unsuccessful. I followed Anthony Hughs directions but it did not work. Also, when the menu pops up when holding down the control key, it does not say “Generate Chord Symbols” instead, it says “Cycle chord diagram.” In write mode I have chosen only the piano part and would like to only have the chord symbols generated for that part. I also could not find the same pop up window that says “Generate Chord Symbols From Notes.” Any help would be appreciated.
Yeah works fine even if a chord symbol is already there, it just recalculated. This is fantastic! Do the same with Roman Numerals and that would be fantastic, we’d have the triptych of figured bass, chord symbols and roman.
Not sure, but I noticed that if you have a bunch of analysis there it will give you a menu much like you already have. If you have one with no chord symbols then it will give you the single choice per Anthony’s video. I don’ t know what triggers one vs the other exactly, but make sure all the chord symbols are cleared out. Also enable viewing hidden signposts and symbols and such, maybe you have something tripping it up that is hidden.
If you take a look at the Learn tab, you’ll see it in the right-hand column when it gets posted to the blog. It’s worth looking at that at least once a week anyway, as there’s always some interesting new content appearing on the blog (e.g. every Tuesday, my colleague Anthony posts a short tutorial video, normally under a minute in length).
I updated yesterday my Dorico Elements from 4.0 to 4.0.10. I noticed that the function “Generate Chord Symbols From Notes” is still not there. Is it still on the way or did I miss something when updating to latest version?
