I searched for it and it's actually included in #281272: Automatically apply accidentals, but that submit is like an integration of several different issues and suggestions, so I'd like to create a new one for your convenience.

Courtesy accidentals needed in one octave would not be needed in another, so it should normally be correct to lose them. That said, there could be special cases where it might be desired to keep them, so we could consider a new command for that. Better, I think, to add the automatic facility as discussed in the other issue. But I'll leave this open as a suggestion as well.

Yes it's indeed better to implement the automatic mechanism. The reason I think the courtesy accidentials should be kept is that I believe Ctrl + Up/Down is mostly useful to move large sections, for example letting the flute having the same melody with 1st violins but up an octave, so in this case the courtesy accidentials shouldn't be removed if you copy-and-paste 1st violins to flute and move up an octave.

Fix typo.
