Accent Placement Revisited
I could have sworn I brought this up in private testing.  Anyway, its still not fixed (note the accent getting swallowed by whole note):

If the accent is supposed to be on the first stem down eight note(s), highlight the note(s), go to Properties and click on Use stems for articulations.

If the whole note is supposed to be articulated, there is a problem.  If you accent the note first and then try to enter the eight notes stem down, it blows away the articulation over the whole note.  One work-around is to use the diminuendo hair pin preceded by a dynamic with visibility to never as shown below, or by inserting the accent as text using NWCV15 fonts A = >, however it will not play as articulated.
