Signposts visible only sometimes?


I have a problem with signposts, especially for key changes:
I created a new score and added some key changes in it. But the signpost is only shown when I add a key change to C major. The other key changes do not get a signpost.

Is there an explanation for this behaviour or am I doing something wrong?

Best Regards,

That’s intended. The signpost for C is displaying only because there’s no visible key signature. A minor is the same way.

Or rather, dependent on the way that cancellation accidentals are set (or if it’s at the start of a flow), it’s entirely possible for C major/A minor/Atonal key signatures to be effectively invisible. Therefore they show signposts.

Thanks for the quick responses!

Hmm… what I don’t get is, in another score i have, I get a flag for every key change I enter:

But not in that new score: there I only get one for the C. Its a different behaviour. Something must be different?

Yeah. You have instruments that don’t show key signatures (in this case, percussion).

It’s unlikely that you’d want to delete key signatures from an unpitched percussion part, but the signposts enable you to do so. If they weren’t there, you wouldn’t be able to do that.

Ok thats the explanation! :slight_smile: Thank you very much!!
