1) Place time signature/key so that courtesy appears on next system
2) Add/remove adjacent bar so that courtesy measure moves to different system
3) Note that the courtesy signature/key creates a double with the real signature/key

The easiest way to work around this is to disable show courtesy in the inspector yet in Musescore 2 courtesy's would automatically disappear when not needed.

Hmm, actually, now I'm confused, I thought I understood this report but I actually don't. Can you please attach a sample score and more specific steps to reproduce the problem? Eg, have the score you attach already have step 1) done, and then tell us exactly which measure to click before inserting or deleting a measure in order to see a problem.

I believe I'm having the same problem, where the program keeps generating courtesy key signatures randomly when the piece is in one key. I am also looking for a solution. I unchecked the "create courtesy key signature" but, alas my pieces still look like this, in all parts.
(This is an arrangement I'm doing for my senior music seminar class.)

In order to investigate, we need the actual score, not just a picture of it. And ideally, see if you can figure out steps to reproduce the problem - eg, what is the last thing you did before the extra signature appears? But do see the other issue I linked above and see if perhaps it's the same thing - are you inserting measures at the beginning of systems? If so, it's a known issue with a pending fix. But also, be sure you are on the most recent version 3.0.5, as there have been other bugs fixed since the original 3.0 release that could also cause this in some cases.
