In 4/4 with ordinary beat groupings, no combination of Note Groupings can yield a half note on beat 2 tied to an 8th note. Instead the best it can yield is a quarter note tied to a dotted quarter note.
This is interesting to me because it seems to actively disagree with two Note Grouping options: “Notes starting on a beat followed by a rest in the middle of the beat” set to ‘Split at beat boundaries,’ which ordinarily disallows dotted notes followed by 8th rests and should require splitting at the 4th beat boundary, and “Notes starting after the start of the bar of multiple beats in duration” set to ‘Notate as a single note’, which should allow the half note without requiring a split at the 3rd beat, the middle of the bar. But this rhythm always breaks the middle of the bar, regardless of any notation options.
I’m using Force Duration for now—this is just an observation.
