So in the attached (from the first movement of Bach’s D minor harpsichord concerto BWV1052), I started writing on the score without having edited the notation preferences for the Flow. In Bach’s manuscript the beams are broken across the beat boundaries no mater what, so I went into the notation prefs and changed every setting I could find to “break across the beat boundaries”
However, it has not updated my score. I’m guessing it might be down to the time signature (split compound), however I should be able to break the beams right?
When I go to do it manually though I run into some problems - if I select a note that is part of a beat tied across the bar then it selects the entire tied note value, so I can’t “beam together” that tied quaver with the following semi-quavers.
Any thoughts? Is prefs thing a bug? Any way beaming could be a little more intuitive?
