The status bar does not correctly display the pitch of notes that have an ottava line applied to them.

Also, a music notation book that I use states, "Accidentals do not apply if an 8va sign is added; repeat the accidentals." In the attached score, the red notes are in a different octave and should not be affected by the accidentals in the previous group of notes.

You are correct on all counts. As for the accidentals, you are correct, but it is advisable to use courtesy accidentals in this case to assure there is no misunderstanding of your expectation as the publisher of the music.
