Roman Numeral Analysis

• Oct 27, 2021 - 01:16

Hi, I'm using the Roman Numeral Analysis chord symbols as I prefer their style, and I noticed that any accidentals will prevent inputs such as '^', 'o', and '+' from converting to the proper chord symbol notations (which are the major, diminished and augmented symbols respectively). Chords without accidentals aren't affected. Is this a bug? Thanks in advance.

B diminished 7:
And the A diminished, which has an unformatted o.

Roman numeral analysis cannot be used for chord symbols, it wasn't designed that way. So in addition to things like what you are seeing, they won't transpose, won't playback, won't export to MusicXMl correctly, etc. It's not clear what you prefer about them, but it should be possible to get the standard symbols to display similarly (eg, using the settings in Format / Style / Chord Symbols. If you attach your actual score rather than just pictures and describe in more detail what you want to achieve, we can understand and assist better.
