I am having an issue where accidentals in separate voices are overlapping. (See attached snipet.) Is there a work-around for this?

Thanks!

Nothing other than dragging one or the other accidental to the left. It will normally stay there unless something in the measure changes.

I tried just dragging an accidental to the left. That didn't work though. It just re-formats the measure and the accidentals still end up on top of each other. That did make me think of something though. I thought there was a way to lock a measure. (I had to look that up in the manual. It's been a while.) After I locked the measure, then I was able to drag one of the accidentals over.

This was much easier than the work-around I had come up with previously. For that, I added a B (natural) to the lower voice. This fixed the spacing of the accidentals but now didn't look right because the stem for the lower voice extended up to the B. So, I hid the stem for the lower voice and consequently had to add the E and G# on a third voice so I could see the stem. Yes, it is as complicated as it sounds but it worked. I like the locking the measure much better though.
