Change Spelling/Enharmonic Equivalents does not behave as expected

needs info

My score is in the key of C.
I entered a chord on strings: Ab, Db, Eb.
MuseScore 4 spells it as G#, C#, D#.
I tap J
REGARDLESS of whether I have 1 note or an entire measure selected, it only changes 1 note of the chord.
I have to manually click on the note heads I want to change, which slows me down a lot.
It should cycle through ALL enharmonic equivalents for all notes in the chord every time I tap J (in other words, give me another option for spelling this chord until I find the one I like and stop tapping the key — like Finale).

I can't reproduce this. Are you pressing "J" to respell? For me this works exactly as expected - it respells whatever note or notes you have selected. if you have found a case where for some reason this doesn't work as it should, please attach your score and give precise steps to reproduce the problem.

HI @Marc Sabatella - thanks again for your note. Yes, I am using J to respell. In Finale, I don't have to select specific notes. I just select the chord, tap a key, and it cycles through all enharmonic spellings of the chord THAT MAKE MUSICAL SENSE. It's super fast. I am attaching a video to show you how I'm doing it in MuseScore. Maybe I'm doing it wrong. (FYI — I just subscribed to your course and will try to take it this weekend. Some of what I'm experiencing is probably learning curve, some of it could be workflow improvements, and some may be bugs — but I need to learn more). Thanks again for your help. Check out the attached video.

Selecting the chord selects the notes, so yes this should work and does for me. As mentioned, in order to for us to assist, we'd need you to attach the actual score and give precise steps to reproduce the problem. A video isn't necessary - the actual score and steps are more directly useful.
