I’d like there to be no beam joining beats 3 and 4 in this example but can’t for the life of me find the setting (or even how to change this manually):
I thought I might use the meter pop-over and enter something like (1+1+1+1)/4 - but this doesn’t help…
Thanks for any quick help!
And similarly, how do I beam the following 5/4 bar such that the beams are broken for every quarter note division? This is what it’s doing automatically for some reason:
I was presuming something like (1+1+1+1+1)/4 but this again doesn’t work.
[1+1+1+1+1]/4 should do it (use square brackets)… as to the first question look in Notation Options/Beam Grouping/Quarter note (crotchet) denominator… and select “Break beams at beat boundaries”
Thanks! Very helpful. Someone mentioned in the Facebook group right-clicking where there are various additional “beam” options (in addition), which I’ve now assigned to key commands. I knew there HAD to be a way so thanks again.
