rephrase your question?
an accidental only applies if it appears within a certain octave? no

an accidental is just a note that requires a sharp or a flat.

I know what an accidental is and that it carries to all octaves if in a time signature. I'm asking about an accidental sign in the middle of a measure or something.

Accidentals that appear in a measure only apply to one octave. You may however see a courtesy accidental.

Key signature, oops, thanks.. xD. Will it carry on with tie notes across measures too?

Yes, if an accidental is tied across a bar line, then it remains in effect until the tied note has finished sounding. If a different accidental is used on the same pitch, the new accidental will cancel the old one.

So it will be in effect until the measure ends, or until the tie note finishes if it is in one. You answered my question clearly and added some info i didn't know.. You have been very helpful! tyyy >c:< ;u; <33

With a tie, yes, only for it's duration. Any notes thereafter will require an accidental.

S'just a major scale with accidentals. Sorry!

What does this mean? I'm not great with forum slang.

If you had an accidental in two different octaves, I'd notate both of them. It just makes more sense to me.
