I presumed I might select them and choose option plus or minus (as I do with actual notes) but it doesn’t seem to do anything? Sorry if this has been covered somewhere and thanks in advance. Basically, I want to make the Gbm into an F#m (etc):
You can also respell a single chord symbol (e.g. on a transposing instrument) by double-clicking it to edit it, and changing the root without changing any other part of the chord’s structure: this will then respell only that instance of the chord symbol and leave chord symbols on other instruments spelled the same way.
I did ultimately end up doing it this way (manually chord by chord) though it was time consuming. I’ll try diminished unison when I’m at my computer (though not the most obvious solution, of course )…Would be nice if you could just select (filter) all the chords and then hit “alt + or -” as one already does to enharmonically change the spelling of actual note accidentals (for consistency sake?)
Best and thanks -
I’m not sure why, but if I have an F#min7 chord symbol, select it, and in the Transpose Window try as you suggest and transpose it to “diminished unison”, I get Fmin7 instead (not Gbmin7 as I was hoping). So (unless there’s another workaround), I still don’t see a convenient way to transpose an entire section of chord symbols to their correct enharmonic equivalent short of manually doing it chord by chord (I’m hoping this will be improved “in the fullness of time”, as Daniel would say )…
