"Transpose" not working like "Add Interval"?
I have violin 1 and 2 parts (I created 2 staves thanks to helpful forum replies), and would like to just quickly copy my melody (vln1) over onto the harmony staff (vln2), then just transpose everything down a third so that I can begin making the edits on that, rather than rewriting the whole thing from scratch.
My question is this: When I select the whole line and use the Add > Interval > Third Below, it correctly creates what I want... however, it creates it onto the same staff, and I'm not interested in creating Kriesler variation of the piece.
So then I tried just copy pasting it over, which worked fine, but when I went to the Transpose option, none of the 4 options worked (dim, min, maj, aug). I made sure to uncheck "transpose key", but I'm not sure why none of these work like the add interval above did... Since I only trained in violin performance and not theory (sadly), I may be missing something elementary, so I would appreciate a technical answer on what you would recommend, and perhaps even a theoretical answer so that I can broaden my musical knowledge.
Thank you kindly in advance!
