Update docs to explain how to add custom bass clef key signature

• Jul 27, 2019 - 17:42

When following the instructions in the docs: https://musescore.org/en/handbook/key-signatures#custom-key-signatures to create a new key signature in the treble clef and then dragging it onto my score I see it doesn't put the correct flats automatically in the bass clef signature. Nor can I see any way in the app or docs for how to make a custom bass key signature. (See the attached screen capture).

Please will you update the app or docs to explain how to do this.

No, the dialog only shows a treble clef, but gives a damn. So if you'd pretend it were a bass clef, you can create a custom key sig for that. But that also means that for e.g. a piano staff, you need 2 custom key sigs, one for each staff and need to apply than as a local key sig, i.e. with holding Ctrl while applying it.
those are pure graphical things, no playback, and only for the 0.05% of the MuseScore users needing this...

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. That's so confusing. But it works now. Thank you!

That Mike guy really needs to explain this in the documentation. It's so weird. Why do they even show a treble clef instead of just blank lines. Who would think to drag a treble onto a bass clef.
