Changing the Display for Transposing Instruments

You can change the display for transposing instruments. The Display Transpose section in the Score Settings dialog allows you to transpose notes in the score without affecting the way they are played back.


  1. Select Scores > Settings, select the Staff tab, and open the Main tab.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • Open the Transpose pop-up menu and select your transposing instrument.

    • Use the Semitones value field to set by how many semitones you want to transpose the display.

  3. Click Apply.


The transposing instrument is displayed correctly.


Display Transpose does not affect MIDI playback.
