Transitioning from single to double horn

Hey guys, I'm a trumpet player who was also a self-taught horn player for a year. I haven't played in a while but I'm thinking of picking it up again. I know most beginners start off with a single F horn, and that's the route I plan on taking. For those of you who have switched from single to double F/Bb horn, was it difficult in terms of learning the new fingerings? I know they are very different, does anyone have any way to learn the new fingerings quickly? Thanks!

EMBOCADURA

Hola soy principiante en sax alto, apenas tengo unos 3 meses, y por fin pude tocar una melodia completa con pocos desafines, uso una embocadora metalica no. 7 y una caña de plastico no. 2, es con lo que mejor me he acoplado, me cuesta mucho trabajo llegar a las notas altas a partir de la, si, do y re, y tambien batallo para que me alcance el aire en las notas bajas como do, si alguen me puede aconsejar para mejorar se los agradecere.
