I have a client that is requesting all dyads in the bass clef to be stems-down if they share stems. That would mean the circled notes in the following example would be flippedstems-down:
I dislike it, but it’s what they want. Is there a setting that would accomplish this? Or a fool-proof way to quickly change each file, aside from visually scanning and flipping each one?
I think running the following sequence of actions (which you could do as a macro or script) should do it:
- Select lower staff.
- Filter Up-stem Voice 1.
- Switch Filter to Deselect.
- Filter (Top Note or) Single Notes. (or “Bottom Note or Single Notes”, or whatever - it’s the single notes you’re aiming to deselect).
- Force Stem Direction Down.
- (Set Filter back to Select)
You’ll need to watch out for situations in which Tenors split, though.
Ah, perfect. I can set that up as a macro. Thanks Leo.
