Instrument transposition

Post by Balka59 » Wed Sep 13, 2017 11:28 am


I found how to use other languages than english for instrument names, but the transposition is always shown with english note names, so in italian the Eb Horn would appear as "Corno in Eb" that is quite awful, because in italian "E" is not a note.

Is there a way to edit the instrument name to obtain a more correct "Corno in Mib"?

Thank you in advance

I don't think so. Localization is not finished at all, I have written some reports about that for French localization, and I must say I'm happy that my clients did not complain about that. I know it will be fixed in due course, so no offense to my favorite Dorico's team!

Unfortunately there is still a lot of work left for us to do on staff labelling, which includes correct handling of transpositions in the chosen language.
