New doc. One segment. Put a treble clef and a Bb key
signature in it via the notation editor. Close the
notation view. Split the segment on a nice even
barline somewhere. Open the resulting pieces in the
The clef, key, and time signature are duplicated.
I understand why they're duplicated. There's not much
for that but maybe to add a global track-level clef
and key to the new track parameters, which can be
overridden locally if required. That's another
Here and now, if I don't want to look at this stupid
extra clef, or this stupid extra key, I can just right
click and make them invisible.
Not so the key sig. It's just there, and there's
nothing to be done for it. It doesn't exist in the
time/tempo editor either, so there's no way to delete
it. In this instance, if your autoload is close to
stock, it is likely that the original 4/4 time
signature in the first segment doesn't exist either.
The workaround for this is to go insert a time
signature manually at the location where this meta
signature exists, and mark it as hidden. This works,
but it's inconsistent and annoying. It would be much
more friendly and consistent if it were possible to
right click on it, and make it invisible.
I filed this as a bug first, because the workaround
didn't even occur to me until I was testing out my own
procedure to make sure I was describing reality. I'll
switch it over to a feature request directly.
I can document around this, but it really is annoying
