Custom Key Signature Accidentals Placement

Hi, I’ve created a custom key signature for a Treble Clef stave. I just want one sharp to appear (F#) but have it appear on the bottom of the stave as opposed to the traditional top position. See the picture below. Although I thought I’d set it up correctly it reverts back to the other position in my flow.

If you’re wondering why I need this, I’ve got to create some worksheets for students who have to tick the correct placement for the accidentals in a key signature.

This seems to work as expected for me, Alex. Could you attach the project in which you’re having the problem so I can take a look?

Sure, it’s flow number 34 within this project. I’ve managed other custom key signatures but can’t get this one to work. Thank you.

It renders incorrectly for me too. Curiously I can change the mark to be the #E, and that displays as expected, but not the #F.

In your file, enter a explicit g clef and activate the Octave shift property.

Thought i’m not sure that is the expected behaviour.

Thank you very much! That sorts it, even if it isn’t the expected behaviour.

Yes, there’s something a bit fishy going on here, and it looks like a bug to me. I’ll investigate more when I have a bit more time, but at least for the time being you’re able to keep going. Thanks to @rafaelv for finding a workaround.

Thanks Daniel. Good luck with fixing it.
