Thanks for the suggestion.
It already showed C Major by default, but I tried your suggestion, anyway. Good thought, but it didn’t work. It transposed a fourth to the Key of F by manually adding the flat symbol on every B note. However, the start of the System is still void of any visible key signature, so it still thinks it’s in the Key of C, as demonstrated by the added flat symbol on every B note.
While this exercise is basic (from Jeb Patton’s, Introduction to Jazz Piano A Deep Dive, Sher Music), Mr. Patton’s suggestion to do this in all 12 keys presented a great opportunity to use Dorico. I don’t use this app very often, but when given the opportunity, I will turn to Dorico, for the learning experience.
I am creating this from scratch using the Solo Lead Sheet template.
I also wished I could find a way for the double bars to be inserted automatically at the end of each system, but the Layout Options are doing that even though I have that set. It’s quick and easy to do manually, just looking to use all the automation Dorico has to offer. Again, a learning experience opportunity.
To make sure you had C major already typed in, make sure that Signposts are visible (my advice is to keep them visible all the time, as well as voice colours).
Transposing to a perfect fourth using the Transpose… tool should insert the appropriate key signature.
I’m setting the Quality and Interval and Direction: Up or Down on the left, so Calculate Interval is not being used. The manual states these 2 methods are independent of each other; so it’s up to us to use one or the other.
