change your f's to fis and it'll be fine.
Ok.  That doesn't seem logical to me and it's clearly more work

Want an f?  Get an f.  Want a fis, get a fis.  Quite logical.

It would be quite logical if there were an equal probability of notes in a composition being in or out of the current key.

What do you mean by more work?  How would you think to produce an f
(natural) in your example?
Even though it's not exactly comparing apples to apples, in Finale the entered notes are automatically in the current key and extra clicking raises or lowers the pitch. In my example I would type 'f' plus some modifier to get f natural or f double sharp. It would take more typing to get an accidental just as it takes more work to get an accidental when copying by hand.


p.s. I am getting two copies of everything from this thread. The first one of each pair lacks the last three identification lines.
