Transposing Chords

• May 10, 2014 - 16:47

When I transposed a tune from one key to another only some of the chords changed to the new key.
Has anybody else had this problem?

Those that didn't transpose are not recognized by MuseScore, most probably because they hadn't been etneterd correctly, not matching their chord style.

You should check out the chord style Jojo mentioned going to plugins -> lead sheet -> Create chord chart.
Then double click the chord you want to have and see how it is written, copy that to your score.
Also, for your information, chord entry is much more versatile in the next, unreleased version of musescore.

See [[nodetitle:Chordname]] in the Handbook for a quick summary of the different chord name styles available, but yes, the problem would be that you are not entering chords correctly for the style you are using.
