Key Signature and Chord Symbols

Hello, I thought I’d ask this here while I am trying to figure it out for myself.

I am working with music that has 6 flats, and I’m inputting chord symbols. I can successfully enter, say Ebm7, but Dorico displays this as E7. I suspect this has something to do with the relationship between the key signature and transposing the chord symbols.

How can I tell Dorico to display the chord symbol that I entered (and shows up on the bottom panel correctly)?


It sounds more like you’ve set a font for Chord Symbols Music Text that isn’t a SMuFL music font. What font’s that set to (in Library > Font Styles)?

Finale Jazz Text Lowercase. Changed it to Petaluma Text :sunny:

Or plain Finale Jazz should do the trick too.
