Please help me with this:
I am in 5/8. I would like to group beams in semiquavers, like 4+3+3. I can do it if I change to 10/16, but I would like to stay in 5. 1 quarternote and 2 dotted quavers
See the attached examples:

For similar situations, I use Force Duration and manual beaming in the first bar; then I make a 10/16 time signature for the following bars, and hide the time signature.
For the 10/16, to get the beaming to work, type shift-M to invoke the meter popover; then type
The solution is to insert a [4+3+3]/16 time signature on bar 2 and hide it. And use the beaming options from the edit menu or the context menu, and force duration when needed, on bar 1.

Thanks a lot, guys. I’ll try it right away.
Be careful where you put this time signature change: it breaks multi-bar rests if you use any in that area of the score. I suppose this is a feature request: hidden time signatures should not break multi-bar rests… It might already be on the backlog, I confess I did not search.
Thanks again. I made it, and it’s just like I wanted it. (Rather irritating detouring process, though… Future versions should offer an easier solution.)
It isn’t perfect yet, but surely it cannot be that irritating.
You are right. But it is on my wishlist - along with a playback map like the one i Sibelius where you can specify exactly which bars you want repeated. That said, I don’t miss Sib at all.
