Why sometimes the software automatically changes the structure root to its enharmonically equivalent?
For enharmonic reasons it is possible to select one of the following roots: C, F, Bb, Eb, Ab, Db, Gb, Cb, G, D, A, E, B, F#, C#. If an operation on the structure (e.g. the Mode operator) sets a different root from the ones in the previous list, the software automatically changes the root and switches all other structure notes names to their enharmonic equivalents (e.g. D# turns into Eb).
