Easy Transposition Tool for creating parts for transposing instruments
This is mainly for making lead sheets.
I have just moved from Sibelius to Musecore as I would like to give it a chance, So far my experience has been great for a free program.
However, I mainly use notation software to create lead sheets for my bands, in which there are players playing on transposed instruments in Bb and Eb.
Musescore doesn't have an efficient way to just create transposed parts from a main lead sheet. Ideally, I should be able to create my concert pitch lead sheets and then create Bb and Eb parts. Instead, I have to add an Alto and Tenor saxophone to the main score and create 3 different parts. And then manually edit the layout in each part as Musescore resets all bar breaks. This is time-consuming and not ideal
This is because I can't simply edit the key in one part without changing the key in the other two.
Surely there can be a feature added that simply helps the user create transposed parts from a lead sheet. Just an option to transpose a part that you are creating or disable the posses that copies any editing across all parts.
Even if there is a plugin that can easily create transposed parts, maintaining the layout and only editing the key or clef.
