I absolutely love Dorico so far, but I’ve got two small problems.
Let’s say I’m writing a piece in the key of C Major and I’m modulating to another key in bar 2, let’s say E Major. I would like to be able to transpose the notes in bar 2 diatonically (f.e. in thirds). This can’t be done with a single click on write->transpose, right? My current workaround is to specify the new key E Major in bar 2 with Shift+K, transposing the notes and then deleting the key change. This works, but it’s pretty inconvenient, esp. if there are more than 2 key changes in one bar. Am I missing something and there is an easier way to do this?
I want to be able to transpose intervalls following a scale. For example if I’m in E Phrygian, transposing a D should yield an F. As far as I get it, this can only be done by calculating the corresponding major scale (C Major in this case) and then doing the key change/transpose diatonically trick described in 1. Unfortunately, this doesn’t work for non-major/minor scales like diminished/octatonic scales. (which are way more important for me)
If there isn’t a way to do 2.: It would be great to have this feature added to Dorico.
Thanks a lot!
PS: Currently I’m on Dorico 2.2, but I will make the switch soon I guess.
