Chords not transposed for Sax (solved)

I have a transposed score with a player holding Bb Tenor and Bb Soprano Sax. I used a chord symbol region for the solo parts. The chords for Bb saxes should be transposed but they are not, neither in the transposed score nor in the single instrument.

Why is that and how can I change it?

Could you provide some more infos, like what version of Dorico you are currently using?

The score was written with Dorico 4.3 but it looks the same in Dorico 5.0.20.
I’m on a Mac M1 Studio with Monterey.

Strange thing: if I double click the chord symbol to edit the chords in the transposed score the popup-window shows the transposed chord right: transposed for sax and non transposed for the rhythm section.

Those chords symbols may have been entered as local.
You can see that in the status bar.
You should just need to delete them and the global (transposed) will show.

Thanks for the answer… but there’s nothing edited locally.

Can you maybe post the project (just the part where the problem appears)?

That’s it! Thanks a lot!

(I don’t understand what “for capo” means but it works!)
