I'm trying to recreate french horn parts with the historical convention of showing no key signatures and showing accidentals on each note.
 
I'm notating a piece in f minor for horns in F.
 
I've made the horn parts have independent key signature and changed the key to C major. The transposition is set properly for horns in F (Up P5, Add 1 Sharp)
 
Playback seems to be working properly. However, the added sharp is giving me tsuris. Whenever there is an F it is playing as F#. Making it F natural results in the natural sign showing.
 
1. Is there a more elegant way to set up the horn parts?
 
2. If there is no more elegant solution, is there a way to hide the accidental?
 
Yep, in my world I'd show key signatures like every other instrument, but not an option here.

If the transposition is normal F, not chromatic, set the independent key signature to F major, not C.

Thanks Motet. That did the trick.

It fixed the playback which I had thought was right also.

#$%^&#$% horn players.
