When I entered C7b9#11, Dorico responded with an “alt” chord symbol, which I don’t want.
Unless I missed something, the only way to get it to display as b9 #11 is to select "Never indicate as ‘alt.’ in Engraving Options > Dominant Altered chords > Altered fifths and ninths considered altered chords.
But that makes no sense - I didn’t type “5”.
Dorico should not assume that #11 is the same as b5 because #11 and natural 5 are both present in the H-W diminishied scale (which,like the alt chord-scale, is commonly used for improvising over dominant seventh chords).
If that’s the only way to do it, then it would seem Dorico won’t let me use b9 #11 and “alt” in the same score. I’d consider this a major shortcoming.
So…did I miss something?
Also: are there any plans to let us edit key commands for entering chord symbols, like in Sibelius?
