You need to read Section 27.1 of the manual (Help->Browse Manual)
you mean 24.1 right

btw it doen't mention that if you want to transpose a section select it. I clicked the check box and I thought theat should be good enough.
maybe the transpose note works if I make a selection?

I did but since it didn't give a step by step procedure I didn't get it. Also an example would also have been helpful.

If you make a selection it will transpose all the notes in the
selection. But think first: do I really want to change the input notes
or just the output typesetting? They are two completely different
things in different menus.

I did a save as and created a new file called d dorian so yes I wanted to change the actual pitches.

Command: Arbitrary transpose down
Transpose/shift the cursor note or selection an arbitrary number of
tones down. User can specify interval through a dialog.
Location: Object Menu ▶ _Notes/Rests ▶ Transpose Music
Internal Name: ShiftRealDialogDown
I am assuming this also works on a selection.
is actually changing the notes you wrote in the first place while

Command: Transpose on Print (Graphical Interface)
Gets an interval from the user: the entire score is transposed by this
interval on typesetting - key signatures are transposed as well as
notes and chord symbols.
Location: Object Menu ▶ _Score ▶ Typesetter
Internal Name: TransposeOnPrint

is changing the key that the piece will be typeset in.
But still I don't see Dorian or phrygian  at all in denemo but it exists in lillypond
