How could I achieve this kind of ligature?


I think these screenshots explain it all. I want two different voices with their own ligatures (to show the alternation between both hands in piano playing). However if I delete all rests, it is impossible to have distinct ligatures. At the moment there is at least one rest, it works well.

Any idea of what should I do?


From your last image, select the second note and hit F to flip it.

The optical illusion is easier to understand with Voice Colors turned on:

What you’re seeing is two beams superimposed on each other, because - even if the green voice is a down-stem voice - at the point that the green voice has notes, no other voices are in use so the nominal stem direction is ignored.

Oh I see! That worked, thank you!
