|I believe the nature of the percussion notation is almost as if it is in an independent key signature. C, in this case, no doubt. Probably more of a programming oversight as opposed to a bug. You should probably report this as MakeMusic is gradually fixing these kind of shortcomings and your report will be heard (if not taken seriously). Hopefully it will get fixed. They seem to be cranking out fixes more regularly than in years past. This might be due to the higher altitude in which the programmers reside now (Boulder, CO.).|

when I transpose it down a fourth or up a fifth (sorry I was tired yesterday and saw a minor third down lol)
whether I choose ''diatonic'' or chromatic, it misses certain alterations :/
Yes, this is something I have trying to point out to anybody who will listen. Chromatic transposition isn't suitable for most harmonizing. Diatonic can get a little closer, but the problem is that is it "diatonic" only with respect to the extant key signature. That is fine if you are harmonizing "Mary Had a Little Lamb" or "The Itsy, Bitsy Spider". But for music with more harmonic content than that, diatonic transposition is almost more trouble than it is worth. You have to go back and fix more than half of the notes in some cases.
What would be a huge step forward, and not particularly difficult as I see it, would be a mode of "diatonic transposition" that takes into account any chord symbols that have been entered into the score. In other words, "diatonic with respect to the most recently specified chord." For most common chords, we can easily identify a pretty good scale. For example min7 = Dorian scale. dom7 = Mixolydian scale. 7(#11) = Lydian, and so on. If the diatonic transposition would use these chord-related scales instead of the key signature, I bet we'd only need to adjust 10% of the notes or fewer if we are doing any "regular" harmonizing (drop 2 e.g.).
