Representing compound time accurately

Is there a way to configure the grid so that in 6/8 time it shows two subdivisions of three eighth notes rather than three subdivisions of two (see attached screenshot)? I find it very disorientating, especially when working in the key editor.

I’m afraid this is not possible.

Wow! That’s remarkable. It seems like a pretty fundamental oversight.

In 10.5.20 it works, I don’t know if something’s off in 11.


Oh yes! You are right, I forgot this one, sorry. This menu appears once you click to the main-ruler menu or right-click the main ruler.

Brilliant! Thank you.
