Transposition dialog box


How to get there

The Transposition dialog box can be accessed in two ways, depending on whether you are applying a transposition to your score or when programming a transposition Metatool:

  1. Click the Selection tool  image\Selection_Tool.gif, and select a region of measures.
  2. Choose Utilities > Transpose.

To program a transposition Metatool:


Note. Use the following Metatool key commands to quickly transpose a selected region of music: +6 = Down M2, +7 = Up M2, +8 = Down octave, +9 = Up Octave. These are Finale's default settings, but can be changed by reassigning the Metatool definition.

What it does

In this dialog box you can specify a transposition of any interval, from a half step to many octaves, you want to be applied to the selected measures (or to the mirror, or to a note in the selected motif). This kind of transposition has nothing to do with the key signature; it merely transposes the selected music up or down by the interval you specify, adding or subtracting accidentals as necessary.
