Does the 8va belong to the instrument?
I wrote a part for bass recorder, which is notated 8va. I changed my mind and changed the instrument (in the "staff properties" menu) to bass viol, which is notated at pitch. However, the 8va at the start of the system remains. Is that correct? I would say that that the 8va is a property of the instrument so if I change the instrument it should come or go as appropriate.
Also I can not find in the handbook how to remove it by hand. There is only an entry for 8va lines.
