Inserting Display Transpose Changes

You can change the Display Transpose setting at a specific point in your score to insert a key change. This is useful if you are writing a saxophone part and want the player to switch from alto to tenor saxophone, for example.


  1. Double-click the key symbol at the beginning of the staff.
  2. In the Transpose field of the Edit Key dialog, enter a transposition value in semitones.



This setting is not relative to any Display Transpose settings in the Score Settings dialog (StaffMain tab). This means that you enter an absolute Display Transpose value that is used from this point on.
