Clarinet in B???
So I'm transposing an old score. At some point the score changes the "A Clarinet" to "B-flat Clarinet". (In the picture I provided it says "Clar in B". So far that meant the "B-flat Clarinet", so I don't think that's the issue here, but let's see).
The issue is that in the score that is supposed to change the clarinet part to "E-flat Major". But when I do that in musescore it makes it "F-sharp Major". See picture I uploaded. The red words are mine just for clarification. Is there a way to fix this? Thank you.

Are you using Musescore 3?
Did you apply the instrument change from the pallet?
If the answer is yes to both, you are experiencing this bug: https://musescore.org/en/node/320828. The workaround is to use the change instrument text from the Add>Text menu
The bug is fixed in version 4. See https://github.com/musescore/MuseScore/issues/14722

I didn't know this and made some tests.
If you use 'Change Instruments' from the palette entry I can cofirm this bug.
But if you do that in concert pitch mode, it gives correct results when going back to written pitch!
You need to do the enharmonic spelling change probably.
May be a workaround too.

It isn't the issue.
In some countries (e.g. Germany and others) the B is called H and B flat is called B.
So if your language settings in Musescore is e.g. English you will get "B♭ Clarinet"; if it is German the clarinet is called "Klarinette in B".
