8va line that ends in the last bar

When a 8va line is added and it ends in the last bar, the last note does not get transposed. When exporting to musicXML the last note ends up in the wrong octave

Your line stops short of the last note, that is why it does not affect that last note. Simply extend it all the way to the end of the bar (double click, Shift+right) and all is well.

In the future, you may wish to take advantage of the support forums to ask for help when you have questions on how to use MuseScore (eg, "Help / Ask for Help" from within MuseScore).

The line cannot be moved past the last note. I know how to move the line but it attaches to the last note and cannot be moved past it.
