Transpose for Eb horn not working in this score

• Apr 24, 2019 - 23:02

The concert pitch key is F maj/D minor and the Eb horns (tenor horns) are set to transpose down by a major 6th (i.e. the transposition already set up for Eb horns) but their key signature is showing as G maj/Emin i.e. it's transposed by a major 2nd.
I tried to correct it by changing the transposition to 0 up/down in the hope that this would reset the default, but this actually changes them to Bb major/Gm!
Is it a bug?

You have applied a local key signature (ctrl+drag the key) of Bb to the Tenor horns. If you drag a key of F to the entire score (don't press ctrl) it will apply the correct key signature to all instruments.

Thank you !!

I had no idea there was such a thing as a local key signature (good to know) so I'm baffled how I did that by accident...

How is it possible to see on a stave whether a local key sig has been applied? I looked in stave properties but can't see anything there, thanks.
