I chose to resurrect this thread with a possibly related issue, instead of starting a new one.
During the course of a particular score, there are several key changes.
At bar 130, it changes to D flat major.
For some reason, the music following that particular key change is constantly notated with accidentals, as if there was no key signature at all. It is as if every note is equipped with a cautionary accidental … throughout.
It might have to do with the fact that I haven’t written the score starting from bar one, I have made instalments and am now bridging sections that includes key changes from earlier? The fact remains, however, that I now have both a key change, and yet there are cautionary accidentals for all notes.
Suggestions? I tried to fiddle a bit within Notation options, but the mystery prevails.
Later that same day …
Something even more confusing (and who knows, this might be a clue to the solution for someone smarter than myself):
I just chose Edit > Transposed pitch for the score.
- Instruments in B flat now show E major (D major concert pitch).
- Instruments in F show A major (D major concert pitch).
- Instruments in concert pitch show the desired D flat major.
And all parts are still with every “black” note proceeded by the appropriate accidental.
The problem solved itself. I opened “Key signatures, tuning systems, and accidentals” (as I have done all the time). Instead of choosing among “Used in this flow” key signatures, I went to “Key signatures” and chose one from scratch. That solved it.
