Dear Sirs,

I am using a plugin called Accidental Tuner which is made to write Arabic microtonal music that contains half flats and half sharps. I am able to create custom key signature with those accidentals and it shows on the stave. So far so good.
Once I add the Tablature, they also show on it and there is no way I can remove them even if I select them. Clicking on them once, the selection includes the ones on the stave too. Click again, the ones on the Tablature are selected alone, but the delete option disappears. This makes the software unusable for my work. It looks like a bug to me.

Severity S1 - Blocker S3 - Major

Definition of Blocker is different.
Actually this might even be a Suggestion AKA feature request, I don't think this has been implmented

Workaround No Yes

Use a local key signature, i.e. Ctrl+drag the custom key signature to the top staff.
As these don't playback anyhow, this should work OK I guess?

Another workaround is to select only the tab key signature via Cltr+click, then mark it invisible.

In any case, I can confirm the basic issue here is reproducible from scratch, custom key signatures always appear on tab staves for some reason.
