Transpose skips some notes

• Apr 23, 2019 - 18:49

I transcribed some printed music to MuseScore and used cut and paste heavily as some sections were quite similar. Ie. The rhythm was the same and the pitches were not too far off.

I noticed when I transposed the entire score a fifth down (in a new file), some parts sounded oddly dissonant and when I compared to the original, I realized not all notes were properly transposed - at least not the right distance and some notes definitely not at all. I didn't test this so I don't know exactly what's happening but I wonder if it has to do with the cut and paste.

This was using version
Revision cda4080


If by parts you mean the parts you created using File->Parts, then there is a known bug related to creating parts with concert pitch turned on.

If you used Tools->Transpose... and the diatonic transpostion, you need to keep "Keep degree alterations" checked to prevent accidentals from being respelled to match the key signature.

If neither of these help, you need to attach a score and explain how to repeat what you did.
