Chord symbols and triads MS4

• Nov 8, 2023 - 14:43

I'm using Musescore 4.1.1
I want to learn how to write chord symbols. I'm puzzled about the chording I hear.
I attach a score showing triads and chords.
I would have expected the chords to be the same as the triads, but they're not.
A second line shows the same chords with Tools > Realize chord symbols and that shows what they actually are.
Why does Musescore do that? How do I specify that I want the same chording as a triad?

Also, realizing the symbols adds a very low root note. I know that's what is in the chord when played, to accentuate the root. But I would like to specify that when I realize a chord, I just want the three or four note version. The three and four options in the chord properties does not suppress that extreme bass note. How do I get that?
