Unbracket some accidentals when key is changed

• Nov 30, 2017 - 19:57

Me again! Sorry...

I'm not sure if this is a bug report or feature request.

In the attached example, the top line shows a melody with a courtesy accidental (F-sharp), in the key of 1 sharp. The bottom line is the same, but with the key signature removed. The F-sharp remains bracketed even though it is no longer a courtesy accidental.

I'm not sure what my suggestion is. The brackets seem to have no effect on how MuseScore processed the accidental, and behave only as a decoration - maybe this could be changed?

All the best,

Brackets are completely optional and have no particular effect on anything. Most sources suggest not using them for ordinary courtesy accidentals, reserving them only for a few special situations, but then they disagree about which special situations are worth using them for. You're pretty much on your own for deciding when you personally wish to use them.
