Transposing Chord Names
Composer automatically transposes chord names in these two circumstances:
|1.||When you transpose the pitch of the entire song or some range of measures in the song, Composer automatically transposes the chord names.|
|2.||For an instrument part which has a transposed instrument key, Composer automatically transposes the chord names for all of the measures for that part. This is done if, and only if: (a) the part displays only one staff, or (b) the multiple staves in the part all share the same instrument key transposition.|
The transpositions of chord name keys is automatic. This is generally good. However, in rare cases where the spelling of a chord name is ambiguous, such as F#7 versus Gb7, and Composer makes a choice opposite of the one you would choose, Composer currently does not offer an option for you to change that decision.
If you change the notes in a chord, Composer will not automatically change the chord name. However, you can re-transcribe the chord names for any range of measures at any time.
