Hi,

I've entered a full chord progression to a standard song. The chords are displayed correctly. I naively entered the progression with the composition scale set to "C Chromatic". The song is actually in Dm.

All my attempts to change the composition's scale to Dm result in the chords changing from what I entered. I would like to get the scale/key correctly set while keeping the chords I entered exactly as entered.

The goal is results as per this picture:

I realize (I think!) that this has to do with relative vs. absolute, but I do not understand specifically how to reach my goal from where I currently am.

Could someone kindly give me a step-by-step on how to get there from here?

When changing the scale keep unchecked the box "Find closest match…" (see pic)
