Bb clarinet and trumpet parts show in 2 different enharmonic keys

• Apr 7, 2024 - 06:49

I'm writing a piece with a section in B Major, so for the 2 Clarinets and 2 Trumpets they are in C#Major / Db Major. I want them to show the same key, but the first clarinet and trumpet show in C# Major, and the second clarinet and trumpet show in Db Major. Is there any way to change this?

Check in Staff/Part Properties the setting in "Prefer sharps or flats for transposed key signatures" for these staves. Set the option 'sharps' or 'flats' for both instruments - what ever you want.
The normal setting there is 'Default', so it should also work if you apply the Bmaj key to the entire score again.
