# Typing Intervals

Here is an example of what intervals look like when engraved in the theory line:

To enter an interval, type the interval's quality and size in the text input box.

### Interval Quality

The interval quality represents the type of interval being described:

minorinterval, type the lower-case letter 'm'.- To input a
majorinterval, type the upper-case letter 'M'.- To input a
perfectinterval, type the letter 'p'.- To input an
augmentedinterval, type the plus sign '+' or the letter 'a'.diminishedandaugmentedqualities will always be engraved as ° and + in the theory line.

### Interval Size

The interval size is the number of lines and spaces the interval spans, starting with 1 for unison:

When the users are asked to identify a compound interval, both the compound or its simple version are accepted. For example, a written major tenth can be correctly identified in the theory line by typing either M10 or M3. However, the reverse is not true: if the written interval is a minor second it is incorrect to identify it as m9, the only correct answer is m2.

### Typing in the Theory Line

To type intervals in an interval assignment, please follow the steps:

- Click on an entry box for the theory-line editor to pop up just beneath the theory line.
- Type the quality and size of the interval as described above into the theory-line editor. As you type, your input will be engraved in the theory line into proper music notation.
- When you are finished typing, press the Enter or Return key or use the Tab key to move to the next entry in the theory line.
