Beaming/stemming across measures?

So basically I’m trying to transcribe some Villa-Lobos stuff and I can’t find anywhere how to write THIS.

Any tips would be highly appreciated it.

Best wishes,

Welcome to the forum! This is called cross-staff beaming. Read all about it at the link, but in brief:

  • Enter all the beamed notes on one staff (usually the one with more notes)
  • Select notes you want to move to the other staff and press N to move up or M to move down
  • If you need it, there is Edit > Notations > Cross Staff > Reset to Original Staff
