How to get typed chords to transpose for respected instruments

• Mar 21, 2020 - 23:46

I have noticed that on other's scores they write a Bb chord for say a C instrument and when you copy and paste the part into say a Bb instruments, the text automatically changes from Bb to C.

This score has it.

How to do get this feature? I just type using staff text but the chords don't change.

Not just transposing, but lots of things - including proper formatting, MusicXML export, and - as of 3.5, playback - depend on using the actual chord facility. It's also far simpler - hit Space to move to next note or beat, Tab for next measure, type "b" and "#" to get a real flat and sharp sign, etc.
