Defining capos for chord symbols/diagrams

You can define capos for chord symbols and chord diagrams on a per-player basis. This affects chord diagram shapes and the transposition of capo chord symbols. For example, you might show both main and capo chord symbols for the voice player when creating a lead sheet.


These steps do not affect used chord diagram grids or pitches on notation staves/tablature.


  1. In Setup mode, select a player in the Players panel for whom you want to define a capo for chord symbols/diagrams.
  2. In the action bar, click Player Settings and choose Chord Symbols > Capo Chord Symbol Definition to open the Capo Chord Symbol Definition dialog.

    You can also right-click players and choose this option from the context menu.

  3. Change the pitch for In capo chord symbols, written middle C (note 60) sounds as.

    The pitch determines the spelling of capo chord symbols for the corresponding number of half-steps.

  4. Click OK to save your changes and close the dialog.


A capo with the set transposition and spelling is set for the selected player.
