Beaming when syncopated

Hi there,

I am notating a piece in 3/4, and have played in the notes. For one bar, Dorico has written q-q-q-c-q (where q is quaver and c is crotchet) - whereas I would like q q q q_q q (where q_q means tied quavers). How can I change this beaming retrospectively?

I tried changing the first option in Notation Options to Break beams at beat boundaries, but that did not work.


Welcome to the forum, Isabella. In Notation Options, go to the Note Grouping page, then scroll down to the Syncopation section, and set Notation of short-long patterns to Split at beat boundaries.

Thank you Dan!

Not sure what you mean about a Churchill link – do you mean Churchill College, Cambridge? If so, both my brothers went there, but I’m afraid I went to “the other place”!

Ah! Then I was there with your brother - I remember his name now.
Say hi!

S, that is.

I will!
