Different pairs of stems in a 16th-note-chain

can anybody tell me if or how this is possible with Dorico please?
It’s used for example in the 1st Bach Cello-Suite between open strings and not open strings. Much easier sight-reading is possible like this.

Yes definitely possible: use two voices (one up-stem, one down-stem), remove rests, and fix-up beaming and beam directions manually (Edit menu and F for flip).

Once you’ve set one bar up, you can easily replicate it by copying that bar, and repitching notes.

I’m sure something similar to this has come up before so have a go searching the forum, there might be existing example projects.

cool…thanx a lot…I’ve been afraid that it would only be possible by working with 2 voices :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: but no problem

you can of course start with one voice only.
After having played in all notes, select all the odd (1. 3. 5. 7…) or all the even notes (2. 4. 6. 8. …), then via the context menu “Change Voice” to a new downstem (or new upstem) voice.
