Logic Pro 9 Notation - Can I write in G#?

I am surprised that I haven't noticed before that Logic only seems to offer 15 major key signatures. Although Cb is catered for, the sharps side only goes as far as C# - no G#, D# or A#.

Is this just my system, or is there a way of editing this list?

Distinguished colleagues, you are of course correct in all you say (Ouch indeed!).
I will now draw a (ledger) line under this matter to forestall further enharmonic flaming.

I have a piece in E which transposes temporarily up a third, and I am keen to stave off (geddit?) similar derisory flak from the string players in whose mind Ab and G# exist in different dimensions :)

It's not just string players. G# and Ab can be different pitches when using just (or some other ) intonation. However that still doesn't justify a key signature of G#.

BTW, my wife's harpsichord has a separate G# and Ab on the keyboard:

Yep. This is a longtime complaint of Logic score users.
