Base tone gets exported one full tone lower with x

My song is in G major. When exporting the lead sheet PDF, some of the G’s get exported as F’s with a strong x - which I guess means “This is actually one full tone higher”.

This obviously is not nice for reading the sheet.
How can I get a proper G in my exports?

Hi @betpsen,

The reason is because you probably created that note “bo” by raising scale degree 7 by a half-step using a chromatic alteration, so Hookpad thinks this note is a “#7” instead of a “1”, which is why it is being spelled as F##. To fix this, just select this note and type “1”, to force it to be a scale degree 1, and it should export as a G.
