I’m using the ‘first occurrence of the same note in next bar’ option of Layout Options, primarily because I was so used to the near-equivalent in Sibelius which confined it to the first note in the next bar. So I’m used to hiding accidentals which I don’t believe are necessary. However, if I copy material from one stave to another, and then change the octave, all the cautionaries become visible again, so these then need to be hidden (this example is from cellos to basses):
Is there a way to preserve the hiddenness of accidentals like these?
And - yes - I’m now starting to realise that it would be quicker to check each bar for cautionaries that need to be added (with a different Layout Options choice) than to select whole bunches of accidentals which need to be hidden under my present arrangement.
