I created a custom key signature that contains C#. When putting this key into the score, it would place the sharp on the 3rd space (the c in treble clef) regardless of which clef the staff was in.

This is expected behavior. You need to define key signatures individually for each clef - there is no way for MuseScore to know which staff lines you would prefer to use in each clef.

still an issue. I was able to right click on the individual key signature on the bass clef and do edit element. This allowed me to drag it to where it should be, but that doesn't actually seem to do anything. It still treats it like it is in the treble clef. I tried doing a custom key signature for just the bass clef but then it changed the ones up top.
It occurred to me maybe if I had a separate piano bass clef and treble bass clef it wouldn't happen, but then I remembered that the vocal line is already separate.

Workaround No Yes

Workaround is to created different custom key signatures for different clefs (ignoring the treble clef that dialog shows)
