Steps to reproduce:
1. Create notes which need 3-4 ledger lines above the staff.
2. Add single-note tremolos.

Expected result: tremolo strokes should stay within the stave

Actual result: tremolo strokes collide with the ledger lines

From Elaine Gould's reference book "Behind Bars", page 222:
"Tremolo strokes must stay within the stave so as not to be confused with, nor collide with, a ledger line."
This will require a fix which lengthens the note stem if the note is stemmed.

Strictly, there is a workaround:
- lengthen the note stem if it exists
- select the tremolo strokes and adjust the vertical position in the Inspector
But we are transcribing Bruckner's Symphony No.5 for OpenScore - and there are hundreds of tremolos like this example...
