Can't delete key signatures if at mmrest

I cannot remove the key signature from part scores.


Status needs info active
Reported version 3.6 3.3

Hmm, 2.3.2 does allow that, 3.5.2 and 3.3.4 do not. So it is not a recent regression for sure

Title a bug with the key signature Can't delete signatures in parts

Another workaround is to apply a C-Major key (no flats or sharps) sig to the part

Which reveals a problem: that applies to that part only, not to other parts of the score, so makes it a local key signature. That part is not a regression though, same in 2.3.2, and trying to prevent this actually might be the reason why it doesn't work anymore in MuseScore 3

Can you explain in more detail - sample score, steps to reproduce? I had no problems removing a key signature in a part in a score I just created - worked fine both at the beginning and mid-score.

I could reproduce with a score of mine, Closed Score SATP + Piano, with a SATB and a Piano part, and with one flat.
And also from scratch, using the attached

Go into one if the parts, select the flat, press Del -> nothing happens

Title Can't delete signatures in parts Can't delete signatures in parts if mmrest

I can reproduce with this, not my test - the difference seems to be mmrests. And I can delete the key signature in your test if I first disable the mmrest. So, perhaps a duplicate of this #46781: Unable to delete key signature when multi-measure rests are enabled, which is a very old issue? Unless it was at some point fixed then returned, which is certainly possible.

Strange though that it works in 2.3.2?

Title I can fix it by remaking the part score. Can't delete key signatures if at mmrest

That's not really needed, but would solve this too
