Transposing selections

You can transpose whole selections together, including key signatures within selections, using the Transpose dialog.


  1. In Write mode, make a selection in the music area.
  2. Choose Write > Transpose to open the Transpose dialog.
  3. In the Transpose dialog, adjust the parameters required for your transposition, such as interval and quality.
  4. Click OK to save your changes and close the dialog.


All notes in your selection are transposed according to the interval or number of divisions of the octave specified in the Transpose dialog. If your selection included key signatures and you activated Transpose key signatures, all key signatures in the selection are also transposed.
