minor chords are recognised as major chords in full german notation (MS2.0.2): user error or bug?
When I input minor chords in full german (lower case minors) mode, like "a" for Am and "c" for "Cm", MS does display them right, but internally stores a major chord, as seen with switching to another display style or generating the accompaniment from the chords.
Do I use it wrong or is it a MS bug?
steps to reproduce: (or open full_german_lower_case_chords.mscz instead of 1-4)
1. create new score
2. set style > general > chords symbol to "full german" and "minor in lower case"
3. input some notes
4. add some minor chords on top (ctrl+k), all lower case with no ending "m", like "a", "c", "f".
-> display is ok, minor chords displayed as simple lower case letter.
5. change chords display style to standard, uncheck lower case minors
-> chords are indeed recognised as Major, not minor as expected
alternate 5: generate the accompaniment and you'll see & hear that MS recognises the chords as major and not minor.
Am I using the styles option in a wrong way or is this a bug?
The reverse test, encoding chords in standard notation "Am Cm Fm", then switching to german style lowercase displays the chords as "am cm fm". So I guess there's a bug in parsing minor chords with no ending "m" that does not take the style into account.
