Concert score vs. C score
By default, MuseScore displays concert pitch scores with some octave clefs, and all the pitches are in the correct octave. I prefer it this way, personally, but my teacher has asked me to create a "C score" in which the numbers are not shown on the clefs (except the tenor vocal), which means some instruments (e.g. piccolo, contrabass) are displayed transposing in octaves.
First, I want to ask: Is this a normal practice in orchestral music? I've never seen it published, but my teacher says that's because I've only been looking at public-domain scores, and the practice didn't become common until the 1970s.
Secondly, does MuseScore have this ability? As a workaround, I could transpose the relevant instruments to get the desired graphical result, at the cost of having incorrect audio playback and needing a separate file for part generation.
