8va, 8vb

Any way to denote 8va, 8vb on my score?  I can create the effect, ie, transpose the notes without changing pitch, but can this be notated?

It's a two step process, for visual and audible effects:

  • Insert your 8va, 8vb or 16va whatever as text expression. Use your favourite font;
  • Insert a hidden clef with octave shift. Watch out for system beginnings. You may need to add extra "fake" clefs --as text from NWCV15 font or elsewhere.
HTH. Ask again if it won't ;)

Sorry, but it's not 16va.
The proper notation is 15ma.
