Stem direction after transpose

• Sep 21, 2018 - 11:46

When I transpose an existing song, some notes are shown with wrong stem direction.
Is this a bug?
The automatic stem direction algorithm when I enter a new song works pretty well.
Can I trigger that stem direction algorithm again after transposing? How?
This would hopefully fix most, if not all, wrong stems.


My guess is your score was imported from a MusicXML file that had the stem directions hard-coded. If the info in the file says this note has to be stem up, it remains stem up even after transposing higher. Solution is to select the notes and reset the stem directions to "Auto" (Ctrl+R, or Inspector). That's the normal default when entering notes, but again, MusicXML files usually have hard-coded stem directions.
