# Force Interpretation ⌃⇧I – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day (KCotD)

`  Force Interpretation    ⌃⇧I`

You can change notation to “look right” but force a desired interpretation.

One example is that if a note has the length of an eighth note, and the score shows an eighth note plus an eighth rest – forcing interpretation will change the note displayed as a quarter note, but continue to play it as an eighth note.

Change note syncopation and interpretation in the Logic Pro Score Editor – Apple Support

By default, note syncopation and interpretation match the settings chosen in the Region inspector. You can change interpretation settings for individual notes to improve readability.
