Admittedly, it takes a little work. Not bad once you know what to do.
I’m using “alto” and “tenor” to refer to specific voices in the treble or bass clefs.
- Enter the alto C in Downstem Voice 1
- Enter the second alto C, the dotted quarter on beat 3.
- Select the 8th rests in the alto part and Edit–Remove Rests (I use this function often, so I’ve assigned it to Ctrl-Shift-R on Windows).
- Enter the tenor part as 8th notes
- Select the middle Cs in the tenor and press N to move them to the treble clef.
- Click on the 8th note middle C from the bass clef, Ctrl-click (or Cmd-click on Mac) on the dotted quarter C, and hit T to tie them.
(In my current project, my beaming is set to break at the beat, not the half-bar… you can change that in Notation Options–Beam Grouping.)
Also, you’ll need to set Notation Options–Note Grouping–Time Sigs with half-bars–Notes starting on a beat followed by a rest… notate as single note. Otherwise the dotted quarter notes in the alto will show as quarter tied to 8th.
EDIT: Oops, Elements doesn’t have access to Notation Options, so you’ll have to use Force Duration (O) to get the dotted quarter to display correctly. Not sure what the default is for 4-8th note beams…
