When I input time signature(shift+M) [2+2+1]/4, 2 groups of 16th notes were combined.
How to keep their original types? like this:
I don’t think there’s a rhythmic grouping you can specify in the Shift+M popover that will beam two quarter beats using a single beam but still split 16ths in groups of four, so one way or another you’ll need to either join or split beams manually.
I’m understanding this differently than Daniel is…
I think Cloudy may want simple quarter note beats.
So set the time signature to [1+1+1+1+1]/4
this will give you a notated 5/4, divided so that the beaming is per quarter note.
Thank you all, and I think I may understand it.
