Cues that begin mid-beam

When creating a cue for a phrase that begins in the middle of two quavers, I’d find it really useful if the first note displayed in the cue (the second quaver) has a flag rather than the end of a beam (see screenshot).

Thanks for sharing your thoughts, I can certainly understand the desire. On the other hand, as Daniel says here, the changed beaming might convey a different idea of the played phrase for the player reading the cue vs how the music sounds. Is it possible/appropriate to show the whole of bar 20 in the cue, perhaps?

I completely understand and in 99% of cases it is perfect.

It’s not in this case: up until the quaver before the cue starts is a long godawful melisma that no-one should ever have to witness. I will just cue in a different location.

Thanks for the reply.
