Notate chords with accidentals using interval numbers

Post by RolfKempinski » Fri Mar 15, 2019 3:55 pm

Hi Everyone!
I have problems with notating chords that contains accidentals using the interval numbers method? I try to notate F7/Eb in the key of Eb.
I press E for Eb, that works. Then I press 2 for F, that works too. But then I press 7 on the numerical keyboard for a natural and the press 3 for an A, but an Ab gets notated. No natural accidental. But if I choose 8 for sharp instead, I get an A natural.
Is this the way it's supposed to be or is this a bug? Thanx for any help!

/Rolf

There's something wrong with the way your keypad is working. I'm guessing from your name that you're not using a UK/US keyboard set up and that may explain things.

That chord should indeed be input as E, 2, [natural]3, 3. Just tried it and Eb, F, A , C was notated.

You don't say which version of sib you are using. I distinctly remember coming across an issue like this in sib 7-ish. It affected all text. The natural on numpad 7 did not always produce the expected result.
Sib 6.2, 7.5 and 2019.1, Windows 10, 8MB RAM, 7TB 7200RPM Storage, Note Performer 2, EWQLSO, EWQLSC, Harmony Assistant and some others.
