I should have mentioned that having transposed to the wrong key, you can
always make a further transposition to correct your error. In the case
you mention here, you need to transpose upwards by a diminished second
(the code is d2 for the "Arbitrary transpose up" command).

My brain is not working at the moment. (Not enough to understand your explanation) But I applied the "d2" transposition, and the problem went away.

If the error was mine, then there's no need for the "simplify" function I mentioned. Perhaps. It would/could have been a more generalized function, used to correct mis-spelled sharps/flats regardless of how they came about (whether through "transpose" or some other way). But if these problems don't occur, then, obviously, no need. Thanks for helping

(In case you are struggling to analyse that, it is a second because you
are taking G-sharp to A-flat so counting the note steps starting at 1
you get 1 for G and 2 for A, so it's a second - you always have to start
counting a 1 so that g-g is a unison, and g-g' is an 8 or octave. Then
for the quality of the interval, a major second is a tone, a minor
second is a semitone, so this is a diminished second, being one semitone
smaller than that).

Please don't be insulted if you knew all that!
