I do tons of work with guitar fretboards and chord symbols. This question has to do with chord symbols though. Specifically looking for a way to get the root with my choice of enharmonic.

I'm trying to transpose a series of 60 chord symbols from B root to Bb for a chord book. I know how to transpose the chord symbols, but I'd prefer not to go through the entire document, changing every chord symbol from A# to Bb. Simplify spelling doesn't work, respell notes only changes the notes on the staff.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Rick Peckham

That's just the thing. I had 'favor flats' checked already. There doesn't seem to be a way go globally change a chord root. I hope there is though!
Anyone else?

Thanks,
Rick

Without seeing the exact setup, I'm hard pressed to understand exactly what the easiest way is. Are you saying you have 60 chords of various suffixes with root B and want to change them to root Bb. Is it changing them to A# instead? That would be a problem of how you transposed. It sounds like you chose to transpose down a minor 2nd. Choose Augmented unison instead.

If that is not what you want, please explain in greater detail.

I did transpose down a minor 2nd--you've nailed the problem! Down an augmented unison did it! You've saved me hundreds of tab/mouseclick/highlight/keystrokes etc.

I appreciate it!
