Capo guitar - Key signature and accidentals problems

Hello!! I’m just doing parts of a custom orchestral project with 9 flows and I find a very strange behavior in one flow that has a capo at the 3rd fret. The piece is in C, and I have a capo at the 3rd fret, so the guitar part must be in A. That is how it works in the score, but in the layout, it does it in Gb, with lots of flat notes. The notes that appear in the part are the same but with different enharmonic spellings. I handle it using a short key, but I really don’t know how to fix the key signature thing.
I just want to read what is in the score in the parts.
I attach two screenshots, one of the part, the other of the score.

Thank you very much in advance!!!

Can you attach the project here?

I was trying, but it weights 13,3 mb and this forum only allows 3 mb. Is there any way that we can do it by mail or something?

Thank you very much!

Choose the Silence playback template before saving as the file you’ll share. It should be much smaller!

Or you can email me at r dot lanyon at steinberg dot de.

Hey, I attached it via wetransfer, here it is:

I think there are a couple of problems here. First, you have at some point tried to override the transposition for the layout using the Clef and Transposition Overrides dialog. Dorico is I think getting confused when trying to deal with this and the fretted-instrument transposition. I think you need to remove the transposition override for the layout first - that should cause the key signature to draw correctly. Once that is fixed you need to copy the spellings from the full score into the part as they have all been overridden. To do this, go into the Full Score, select all the notes on the guitar part, and choose Write > Respell > Propagate Note Spellings. That should copy the note spellings from the Full Score into all other layouts.

Thank you very much Richard!! It just worked fine!!! You are great!!!
