<pos> is made up of an optional ##,#,b, or bb (indicating double or single sharps and flats), directly adjacent to a signed integer, indicating how far from the centre line on the staff that the note is.
If you are using this option, it is strongly suggested that you use Tools | Force Accidentals beforehand to ensure that you will get all the notes that you intend.

Comments: About accidentals:
It is possible to filter out an accidental which may then render a subsequent note incorrect. If you notice that two parts share an accidental in different parts of a bar, I suggest you do the following:
1) Tools | Force Accidentals
2) Separate the parts
3) Tools | Audit Accidentals
