Does Notion allow you to set right (treble) and left (bass) piano hand at a split point other than Middle C? If so, how?

Is it possible to set the split point (not sure of technical term) of what gets transcribed, with midi keyboard input, as left hand (bass) and right hand (treble) on Notion 6? (I have downloaded the trial.) I seek to edit midi-input piano improvisations to make them more recognisable 'traditional' notation and work with them further, in a broader compositional environment, in Studio One. (I'm a classically-trained musician and composer and I can 'see' better when the notation looks more like it would as a notated composition rather than a digital device's more rigid and limited best guess.) I notice that what is notated as bass is that which falls below middle C, and treble is that which occurs above it. Is it possible to change the treble/bass cut-over point from middle C to another note, such as a G below middle C, for example, for the duration of a piece, or maybe even for a section of a piece? If I could make a 'global' change like that, it would take one aspect of all the editing required to take a midi transcription to the musical notation I need a lot easier and faster. To me, the ability to do this would make Notion more attractive than other competing programs.

In Notion, you will want to go to File (Notion on a Mac)>Preferences>MIDI Record and you will see an option to set the split point.
