I hope someone can help me with this, I’ve been reading about the topic but cannot figure out how to do what I want.
I’ve got a piece written with an 11/8 time signature. The grouping I want is 2-2-3-2-2 throughout, or crotchet-crotchet-dotted crotchet-crotchet-crotchet. The default grouping is something else, and in particular, beats 8 and 9 are always presented as tied quavers rather than a crochet as I want them to be. Aside from the aesthetic aspect of it, which is important, there are other functional problems such as making that note staccato or starting a glissando on it, none of these things work like I want because of this grouping.
Could someone please enlighten me as to how to make the grouping how I want it? Thanks ever so much!
