Changing key to C Major or A Minor


Recommended Posts

When changing key from say F Major to C major the new key signature needs to be a natural sign  on the middle line of the treble clef otherwise there is no indication that the key has changed.

As far as I can tell this is currently not possible. Is this correct?

Hello,

You are right, the program is set-up in a way that when you use the ¨Transpose¨ feature it will not show a natural sign or any sign that the change was made, although if there are any conflicts within the piece, the program will open up a dialog window for you to choose what you wish to do.

Hope this helps!

I'm not using the Transpose feature, I'm referring to a key change within a piece. The piece I was working on starts in F Major then later, part way along a line, changes key to C Major. There is no problem changing key since all subsequent lines don't have the flat sign at the start on the B line of the treble clef, as required by the key of F Major. However, the exact point at which the key changes from F Major to C Major needs to be indicated by a natural sign on the B line of the treble clef.

Hopefully this feature, whereby the exact point of a change of key from any other key to C Major (or A Minor) is indicated with a key signature containing the appropriate number of natural signs, will be included in a later version. Until then I have to draw them in on the printed sheets, otherwise performers of the piece will be unaware of the position of the key change.
