Change the staff styles at the top of the Region Inspector when the Score Editor has focus. It's the first item below the downward twirled arrow.

THANKS! Wow, that really made a difference! This is a life saver. This is a huge load off my mind.
Am still learning stuff about the different key signatures for wind instruments (makes sense), and will likely have to create my own scale set for clarinet and such, but hopefully I can figure that out from here.
You have done a major good deed, IMO. Thanks again!!

You're very welcome.
Words of wisdom learned from Doug Zangar are to Duplicate and rename any staff styles that you use so that tweaking say Treble for one instrument doesn't mess up the appearance of a different instrument using the same Treble staff style.
To make a Bb clarinet, just Duplicate Trumpet in Bb, then rename it Clarinet in Bb. Staff styles are saved with the project. You can use the File>Project Settings>Import Project Settings to load them in a new project. But it's better to create them in a template so that they're always ready to go.

I assigned what I believe are the proper staff styles. For example, at the bottom of the display parameter(?) box for a baritone sax part, it says "Bariton Sax" next to "Style." (This is located right under No Transpose and No Reset boxes).
However, when I look at the score, it's still in concert pitch.
For reference, this parameter box will assign the desired Staff Style to any regions recorded subsequently. It will not change any pre-existing regions, as you have found.
The trick would be to set up all the tracks with the desired styles assigned, then save it as a template.
